Marconie Fraser A.K.A.

My name is Marconie Fraser, born on August 1, 1982, in St. James, Jamaica. 

I grew up in a little community outside of Montego Bay by the name of Montpelier Blue Hole. My childhood in Montpelier was a struggle, most of the time I didn’t attend school. I would go out with older folks to hustle.

Hustling in the weed field was my main source of living as a youth growing up without a father with only mama alone; although life was a struggling for me i still enjoy myself as a youth, especially on Sundays, when we would play football or cricket.

I attended the Bicker Step Primary School, from there to the Chester Castle All Age School in Hanover. in 1998 i went to Clarendon  to live with my older sister and to learn a trade Auto Spraying. When i was in Clarendon, my cousin Rohan, helped me to get a license to drive trucks. I dd that job for a while when I worked at a hardware where to do removal work by carrying people’s goods.  

One day I went to the Rising Stars Audition, a singing competition.  I went in 2005 and 2006 I never get through the auditions. I saw another competition called Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall and I entered in November 2007 and become the first winner of the Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall in Jamaica. My name Singer Jah aka Waasskaa Ja the first king, crowned in live TV in Jamaica.

I have many popular songs such as :

Tings Haffi Better

Warrior of Jah Army

Prayer 2 The Most High

Wah Di War Fah

My first professional album, Warrior of Jah Army was nominated in the 2012/2013 international song competition. Warrior of Jah Army was produce by Reggae Land Production from out of Barcelona in Spain.

My name Waasskaa came one day when me  and my friends was on a shop piazza singing and one of them said, “Pull up the tune,” and naturally I just hear myself say, Waasskaa, and from then all the people call me Waasskaa.
