About Me

THERE IS A BRAND NEW AND UNIQUE MUSIC/DUB POETRY COMING OUT OF JAMAICA. AFTER YEARS OF PREPERATION + VOLUNTARY WORK THERE IS NOW ANOTHER REVOLUTION IN JAMAICAN MUSIC/POETRY. AT THE FOREFRONT WITH HIS SLOGAN "EMPOWERING MINDS, UPLIFTING YOUTHS" IS THE HUMBLE YET POWERFUL MOTIVATIONAL ARTIST CHARLIE BOBUS. NICARDO MURRAY 'AKA' CHARLIE BOBUS WAS BORN AUGUST 13, 1980 TO MISS PATRICIA MILLER AND WAS RAISED BY MOTHER ALONE ALONG WITH HIS OLDER SISTER IN THE VOLATILE COMMUNITY OF GRANTSPEN. AFTER LOSING HIS MOTHER AT AGE 15 CHARLIE BOBUS WAS FORCED TO BE ON HIS OWN WORKING RIGHT AFTER HIGH SCHOOL. HE HAD BEEN WITH THE SAME COMPANY FOR 8 YEARS UNTIL JUNE 2005 HE LEFT HIS JOB TO FOLLOW HIS TRUE AMBITION OF MOTIVATING PEOPLE THROUGH MUSIC, POETRY, HIS WRITINGS IN GENERAL AND ALSO FARMING.

HE ATTENDED NEW DAY PRIMARY & JUNOIR HIGH, JESSIE RIPOLL PRIMARY, WOLMERS BOYS HIGH SCHOOL AND THEN HYDEL HIGH. IT WAS WHILE AT WOLMERS AROUND 1994 HE STARTED DJING AND WRITING POEMS AND PERFORMING AT TIMES EVEN DURING SCHOOL TIME. CHARLIE AND WAYNE MARSHALL AND COUPLE OF OTHER FELLOW CLASSMATES WOULD BE USING THE CLASS ROOM DESK TO PLAY RHYTHM AND DRAWING CROWDS. HE ONLY PERFORMED AS A DJ, AND GOT GOOD RESPONSE ON STAGE SHOWS AND COMMUNITY EVENTS AND KEPT GOING TO STUDIO GETTING PROMISES FROM PRODUCERS. AFTER GETTING A LOT OF FIGHT AND HOLD DOWN IN HIS OWN COMMUNITY HE ISOLATED HIMSELF AND STOP PERFORMING IN GRANTS PEN FOR YEARS AND STARTED SEFL EDUCATION, DOING ONLINE COURSES, READING AND PREPARING AND WRITING ONLY MOTIVATIONAL AND REALITY TYPE TUNES. IT WAS WHILE ON ONE OF HIS PERFORMANCE OUTSIDE OF HIS COMMUNITY AT JAMAICA VIBES THAT HE CHANGED ONE OF HIS SONGS TO POETRY AND PERFORMED DUB POETRY LIVE ON STAGE FOR THE FIRST TIME. DUE TO THE OVERWHELMING RESPONSE AND HAVING GOTTEN A LINK TO PERFORM POETRY ON ANOTHER SHOW AND THEN CONTINUALLY GETTING OTHER DATES CHARLIE BOBUS STARTED TURNING MORE OF HIS SONGS INTO POETRY AND DIGGING UP OLD ONES WRITTEN AND TREASURED AND STARTED FOCUSING MOSTLY ON DOING DUB POETRY.

AFTER YEARS OF PREPARING AND STUDYING USING THE INTERNET AND INTENSIVE PLANNING AND SEEING THE NEED FOR THE UPLIFTMENT AND MOTIVATION OF THE PEOPLE USING WORD SOUND AND POWER CHARLIE BOBUS FORMED INSPIRATOR INTERNATIONAL ON AUGUST 13 2005.

IF WE ARE TO TELL YOU THE AMOUNT OF FIGHT AND SABOTAGE CHARLIE BOBUS HAS FACED FROM PEOPLE FOR NO REASON, OR THE STRUGGLES AND HARDSHIPS HE'S BEEN THROUGH, IT WOULD HAVE TO TAKE A WHOLE BOOK, BUT ALL I WILL SAY HERE IS THAT OVER THE YEARS HE HAS PAID HIS DUES AND HAVE SHOWN PERSISTENCE AND PATIENCE.
