Deejay Kiprich. - CONTRIBUTED
Kiprich is the Artiste of the Month for November. THE STAR begins its feature on Kiprich with an artiste bio.
IT SEEMS LIKE such a long time ago that Marlon Plunkett, aka Kiprich, was the Crazy Kid working out with the big one Jack Scorpio, as well as Danny Brownie of the hot Main Street Label to which he had been signed.
It was in fact, the late nineties, when he catapulted onto the dancehall scene with his first number one single, Leggo Di Bwoy. But Kiprich has been prolific since then.
Perhaps the catalyst for his successful beginning was a name change, which came about when one of his management representatives, Audley 'Bredi' Allen, decided that it was time to get rid of the Crazy Kid. Armed with his new moniker, Kiprich began to make his mark, turning out hit after hit all written by the young deejay himself.
With lyrics readily flowing from his pen, Kiprich has become one of the most consistent deejays in the business. Dancehall hits such as Leggo Di Bwoy, Imagine This, All Ladies, Cut Him Off,Bad Man No Snitch and Waste Time represent just a few from his catalogue.
Not everyone can make the transition from studio to stage with the same degree of success. However, armed with his trademark smile, Kiprich performs with so much commitment on stage that he has made a name for himself as an exciting live performer.
His latest project, scheduled to be released soon, will be his first album. Noted producers such as Snow Cone, Jon Baker, Rock Wilder, Bobby Digital, Sly & Robbie, King Jammys, Flabba Malcolm and Steely and Clevie are all on-board. Kiprich is justifiably hyped up about the project at it represents another level of achievement in his development as an artiste.
Always in motion, Kiprich toured extensively through North & South America, the Caribbean and Europe. But he wastes no time dwelling on his past successes. For Kiprich, it's all about charting new territory while keeping it real ... and rich!
