Mystique Productions interviewed one such Artist know as the SCAAACHY ONE "FYAH KONKARAH" a vastly growing artist emerging out of Spanish Town , latest new cultural wave with a unique style and voice, delivering revolutionary sounds tearing down babylon walls one by one!
Fyah Konkarah states he does listen and support all artists despite their lyrical content and lifestyle as he is not quick to judge the shoes he has never worn.
He does state however that on his current path in life, he is more focused on spreading a more substantial and meaningful message to his fans and the people around him. Fyah Konkarah says he has been through many life-threatening situations, even near death, and is very thankful to still be physically singing, performing and writing music.
Born Remmon Navauda Cammock on October 23, 1985. Fyah Konkarah hails from the troubled parish of St. Catherine in a community located on St. Johns Road in Spanish Town. In a community plagued by gun violence over the years, Fyah KonKarah being a victim (associated) to the crimes that have plagued his community he remains revolute and focuses on his passion for “MUSIC” and to also Create a comfortable environment for himself and his family.
Fyah KonKarah over the years has lost a number of acquaintances, close friends, and even family members through crime and violence. The artist, however, he has shown greater constraint and self-control to remain undaunted by what some would say is a contagious living condition /environment.
He went to the Labour Lawn Early childhood facility where he graduated and went on to Friendship Primary School. Fyah KonKarah graduated from the Friendship Primary, then he completed 3 years at the Horizon Park all age School and went on to continue his high school studies at Spanish Town high, which is where he got the name Fyah KonKarah after a clash with three other artists from other classes in which he won.
Fyah Konkarah showed some signs of his passion for the music as he along with (his sister Tassan) who was the lead singer for the Sunday school choir, and he also would always hang out on the corner with friends just to as they call it "hold a vibe" and drop two lyrics.
LIFE WITHOUT A FATHER
The absence of parents (mostly fathers) during growing up age as a common cry for the children of the ghetto (garrison) community, and unfortunately Fyah KonKarah is no exemption from this garrison phenomena. As a child Fyah KonKarah was forced to live and grow up without the presence or influence of a male figure or role model, his father was absent from a very early age (before he knew him ). This made life much harder growing up in the garrison but Remmon held firm and he did remarkably well up to the point where he finally got a chance to meet his father for the first time at age 16.
Fyah Konkarah started deejaying from a tender age of 9 years old growing up listening to papa san, lieutenant Stichie, Bob Marley, beanie man, Bounty Killa, Sizzla, Bushman and Daddy Screw.
These artists help to inspire him to write his own lyrics and developing his own style. by the year 2000 he was part of a group called (element crew) which consist of 4 members; Mussu, Shacka p, Johnty, and Genekal. Fyah Konkarah became the 5th element of the group, they were collaborating making music for some time until the group dissolved in single acts and most members pursued different goals. even if it was still in the line of music. Yet that didn’t demotivate Fyah Konkarah from achieving his goals.
In 2003 just before he graduated from high school he became part of another group called (UNTOUCHABLE - ANTARAGE) with artist like;- Craiggis, Nightmare, Rekka, Futuristic, Spracket and Genekal which all still do their independent music even though the group no longer exists.
CONVERSATION TO RASTAFARIANISM
It holds true that most Rastafarian conversion marks a point in one’s life where tragedy strikes or where one has reached a cross road, for Fyah KonKarah it was the unfortunate and untimely death of his close cousin Mike in 2004 that lend to him taking a reality check and hence the decision to convert to the faith which he now holds so direly to, Rastafarianism.
Fyah KonKarah has worked with a host of different studios and producers in an effort to get his music out there, these labels include: Villa Mafia records, spit Fyah records, concrete rose, L.H.M music, Brown Nose records, king of kings, RTD, Allconnect records, Samdigi and Vendetta studio just to name a few.
Fyah Konkarah got his first official song release on L.H. music label in 2008 a collaboration featuring Potential - song titled (GANJA) on the Ghetto party riddim
CURRENT CAREER PATH
Fyah KonKarah is currently active recording on a regular basis with a lot of new releases and some great Productions from several labels and producers.
Fyah KonKarah also performs every chance he gets on local talent shows and community events. He is also a promoter for a weekly event called (Scaaachy Wednesday) held at 58 St Johns road Spanish Town St Catherine. He tried entering several competitions in his earlier pursuit of glory such as Magnum kings and queens of dancehall three consecutive years in a row. Never actually worked out on his behalf at that time, however, He didn’t stop there. He worked harder to produce more and develop his skills. In the year 2011 he got featured on a collab with the artist Craiggis, song titled (Pree Man Suh--Stand Tall riddim-- J&G Records) there was also a video for the song that was showing on RE TV and TVJ.
In 2012 he connected with (all connect records) got one song release on their label In that same year titled (Inna di ghetto-poetry riddim) which have gotten him a lot of exposure and fans worldwide especially the motherland AFRICA. Then in 2013 got another song release on (J&G Records) titled (Gyal wine -Thumpa riddim) linked up with(spit-fiyah - records) that same year and did a track release on their label titled (love di Gyal dem--top game riddim), and the following year in 2014 spit-fiyah records release two hits single titled ( Chatty mouth ..on Team-strike riddim ) and ( Real link …on S.E.X riddim ) in 2015
All the failures, obstacles and challenges he has faced over the years, Fyah KonKarah has remained undaunted and fully focused on developing his talent and launching his career for his eventual big break in the music business. So as always he kept on pushing and working harder and harder towards making his dream a reality recording and performing even when his songs are not being released or playing on the radio.
Regardless of all the disappointment and set back he was as fierce as a wolf, knowing that giving up is not an option, in 2015 he went back to magnum kings and queens of dancehall audition in Portmore St Catherine did extremely well, got through, pass the judges but still didn’t get called for the live show. Never the less it as given Fyah Konkarah a lot of exposure and highlights locally and globally, he then linked up with his brother ( Khary ) of GreatX production and ( British links) teamed up and release a single titled (find a better girl ).

Thought.. of Audre Lorde, Read with understanding…
“I was going to die, sooner or later, whether or not I had even spoken myself. My silences had not protected me. Your silences will not protect you…. What are the words you do not yet have? What are the tyrannies you swallow day by day and attempt to make your own, until you will sicken and die of them, still in silence? We have been socialized to respect fear more than our own need for language.”
I began to ask each time: “What’s the worst that could happen to me if I tell this truth?” Unlike women in other countries, our breaking silence is unlikely to have us jailed, “disappeared” or run off the road at night. Our speaking out will irritate some people, get us called bitchy or hypersensitive and disrupt some dinner parties. And then our speaking out will permit other women to speak, until laws are changed and lives are saved and the world is altered forever.
Next time, ask: What’s the worst that will happen? Then push yourself a little further than you dare. Once you start to speak, people will yell at you. They will interrupt you, put you down and suggest it’s personal. And the world won’t end.
And the speaking will get easier and easier. And you will find you have fallen in love with your own vision, which you may never have realized you had. And you will lose some friends and lovers, and realize you don’t miss them. And new ones will find you and cherish you. And you will still flirt and paint your nails, dress up and party, because, as I think Emma Goldman said, “If I can’t dance, I don’t want to be part of your revolution.” And at last you’ll know with surpassing certainty that only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth. And that is not speaking.”
― Audre Lorde
