Despite the maturity of his current lyrics, it’s hard for many dancehall fans to acknowledge the fact that QQ, born Kareem Dawkins, has grown up. Despite his best efforts, QQ is often looked at as the 10-year-old child who broke onto the music scene with Poverty almost a decade ago.
His other hits include Stookie, Mumsie, Skip to My Lou and Tek it to Dem. The now 23-year-old artiste also took a break from the industry to pursue his education and walked away from Calabar High School with seven Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) subjects, including two distinctions. Despite the challenges, he is currently enjoying success with his current singles One Drop and Ghetto Gal.
