The world renowned Reggae group Black Uhuru (Uhuru: means freedom in Swahili) was formed in Waterhouse, (firehouse) Kingston, Jamaica in 1965. Black Uhuru members were Derrick “Duckie” Simpson, Euvin “Don Carlos” Spencer and Rudolph “Garth” Dennis. These three grew up together in Waterhouse which is known as the “hot bed” for reggae artistes throughout the years. After a couple of years the group members grew apart. Don Carlos went on to a solo career while Garth went on to sing with wailing souls, a group from Trench Town. While “Duckie” Derrick Simpson continued his musical journey as Black Uhuru. Michael Rose, a young singer at the time was then enlisted and Errol Jays Wilson.
