Minister Taf was born and raised in a community called Duanvale, in the parish of Trelawny, Jamaica. He and his friend Delano used to write music for fun and recorded themselves on a tape recorder, but never saw music as a gift as he was very talented at football where he played for several football/soccer clubs including playing in the National Premiere League in Jamaica at the Under 21 level, as well as going on trials to represent Jamaica at the Under 17 level, and winning medals and trophies with Duanvale Fc. He’s a huge fan of Hip Hop, and his favourite artiste was Tupac. He first performed the whole of 112’s song “Peaches & Cream” on stage at a concert when he was about 14yrs old. He listened to many more rappers, such as Eminem, Nas, The Game, Biggie Smalls and many more.
Now, Minister Taf has gradually built a name for himself on the UK scene through his versatility of both rapping and doing reggae gospel. He has now stated that he no longer raps, as he believed God used that to help him find his lane which he is now staying in. His incredible upbeat attitude and positive energy combine to make him one of the most versatile performers in the business today. His energy is on another level! He has been very consistent from the get go, having released one Pre-Album, one EP, one Mixtape and two albums.
In 2016, he was interviewed by MOBO, Tru-life Promotions, won Best Gospel Reggae Act at the Praisetek Gospel Music Award, was also nominated for the JUMP Release Music Video, and the BEFFTA Awards. In that same year, he released his debut EP titled “DIVERSITY” which was well received by many. During that year, he performed on numerous shows in the UK.
In 2017, Minister Taf released his debut Gospel Reggae album for free titled “G.I.F.E” (God Is For Everybody) which was again well received by many. He won Best UK Reggae/Caribbean Sound Video at the Jump Release Music Video Award for the song “Tell Dem Fi Low Mi.” His talent has been recognised by his growing fanbase and many more such as radio stations both locally and internationally e.g. Premier Gospel Radio, Love 101FM Jamaica, Soulcure Radio, Truth FM Kenya, and not mention hearing his song “One Take 2” from the album being played on Hot 97FM in New York.
Minister Taf aims to inspire and to make a difference in the lives of others for the glory and honour of God. In 2017 He had an experience with a homeless person that brought tears to his eyes, and he told God he wanted to do more to help. God spoke to him, and he is now the founder of his registered charity called “STREET FEED” (Charity no. 1176362) which is aimed in making a difference in the lives of the less fortunate by feeding the homeless on the streets of London and elsewhere while giving a word of encouragement to instil hope.
