David Constantino Brooks was raised in an area known as a “Cuban” ghetto, in downtown Kingston, Jamaica. His grandmother gave him his first musical experience at an early age, taking him to church to sing. He also use Bounty Killer music as an early influence.
Bounty Killer became his mentor when at age 15, Bounty took him under his wing to show him the strings of the music industry and introduced him to his manager, the legend Julian Jones-Griffith, who would pass to manage the illustrious career of Mavado. He decided to name himself “Mavado” after the Movado Swiss watch company.
“The Real McKoy” was their debut single that provided immediate success. After a string of hits in 2005 and 2006, Mavado released the album “Gangsta for Life: The Symphony of David Brooks” on July 10, 2007, on VP Records. “Weh Dem A Do” and “Dying”, two singles from the album, were presented to a large extent around the world.
That same year Mavado had controversy off the stage since it was stopped illegally by the police of Jamaica. While in police custody, the singer claims that he was thrown through a glass window, where he cut three fingers in the process, which were sewn in a local hospital. Police said Mavado escaped custody, despite being allowed to walk outside the police station and go to the hospital with his manager. He was later arrested and charged with intentionally firing and illegal possession of a firearm in connection with an incident on July 27, 2007. He was then released from all charges.
