Windel Beneto Edwards a.k.a. Gyptian was born on October 25th 1983, and grew up in King Weston a Rural District, in St. Andrew. He lived with both his parents, his father a Rastafarian and his mother a Seventh Day Adventist Christian (who he explained was the disciplinarian of the family).
Gyptian, was at first hesitant and uncertain but eventually he became serious about being a vocal artist professionally, and Mr. Wong took him under his wings, where he was groomed and eventually he transformed into "Gyptian" a name given to him by Mr. Wong, Richie Bang and others from the studio, due to his habit of tying a shirt around his head and twisting his chin hair like an Egyptian Pharaoh. >> Learn More
