Kayo Guevarra was born and raised on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia. Inspired by the likes of Bob Marley, The Fugees, Kardinal Offishall, 2Pac, and Jay-Z, Kayo began honing his talent through poetry at the age of 14. Eventually, Kayo turned his poetry to songs, that “sugar with the medicine” approach to songwriting is the basis for what Kayo’s music is all about – combining the sounds of rap, dancehall, and soca creating a uniquely aggressive and penetrating sound while penning songs with substance and purpose.
