Vandorne Johnson was born on 11 September 1957 in Hanover, Jamaica. Terry ‘The Outlaw’ Ganzie alongside Buju Banton is regarded as the DJ who rejuvenated Donovan Germain’s career in dancehall. Johnson showed that he was more than Banton’s sidekick when he released notably top notch singles such as “Weighty Like Lead” and “Showdown”. In 1995 he topped the Jamaican industry with “Outlaw From The Past”, “Who Is It” and “Travel Away Home”. In the mid 1990s, Johnson recruited a number of young performers to join the Outlaw Crew which included newcomers such as Ritchie Melody, Rapper Richie and Wayne Sample. Johnson continued releasing his solo work while the crew enjoyed a successful run. In 1996, Johnson released “Hey, Helo, Hi”, “Praise Jehoviah”, “Once Bitten” and “Waan Go Home”. Some of his other notable releases include “Wicked and Hot”, “Can’t Dictate” and “Free”.
