Having had his first smash hit while still just a teenager in the mid-80s, Papa San's phenomenal, ongoing reign on international music charts earned him the nickname Marathon Man, as it was uncommon for him to simultaneously hold down several positions in the Top 10 at any given time, as well as to long runs at #1 that still no reggae or dancehall artist to date has surpassed.
In 1994, he filled dance floors around the world with The Programme. Smash hits like I Will Survive, Legal Rights, Strange and Maddy Maddy Cry, among many others, brought Papa San a huge audience in all the Caribbean Islands and around the world in Japan, Europe, Africa, the U.S. and more throughout the 80s and 90s. In fact, before giving his life to the Lord in 1997, Papa San was a popular figure in American rap circles, being credited as a pioneer by a host of rap superstars.
Later connecting with fans of American hip hop, Papa San landed numerous videos in heavy rotation on MTV. More recently, he has made guest appearances and shared stages with Gospel titans, the likes of Kirk Franklin, Mary Mary, Trin-i-tee 5:7, Donnie McClurkin, Hezekiah Walker and BeBe & CeCe Winans.
