Fyah Fashion shows
Fyah Fashion was born in Kingston Jamaica, West Indies, and migrated to the Bronx, New York, U.S.A. at a young age. There he completed his elementary, high school and college education. He worked in office management from 1995 – present day, and was a partner in establishing Market Track/Media Track Inc. Company, that would have him working in the U.S. and Jamaica. Amidst all his working accomplishments, music had always remained at the heart of his pursuits.
Fyah Fashion was exposed to the music industry by shadowing his older brother Garnett Robotham, who was a Jamaican Selector with Tony Screw from the Down Beat Sound. With Garnett’s mentoring, he started to D.J. at house parties in his early teenage years, and then at local school events. He was also known on the college circuit where he was the guest DJ in quite a few states. From those experiences, he crafted his playing skills in various genre of music like, Hip Hop, Reggae, R&B, Soca & Calypso, Latin, Salsa, etc.
Not limiting himself to any one brand of music, opened the doors for Fyah Fashion to play in high-end music clubs in New York City, such as the Latin Quarter, Union Square, Roxy’s, The Tunnel, Lime Light and Palladium. Fashion was able to exhibit his expertise by playing with some of the top D.J.’s of the time. Namely, Funk Master Flex, Red Alert, Kid Capri and DJ Clue. Playing in these venues allowed him to meet Afrika Bambaataa, the founder of the Zulu Nation. This meeting offered him the opportunity to tour with the group. This would take him from the U.S.A. to Japan, Belgium, Italy, Germany, France, Holland, Spain, Belize, Bahamas, Bermuda, Canada, England, Barcelona and to his homeland of Jamaica.
