'Daddy Vigo' has been resident in Notting Hll since c.1956. He first came to the UK from Jamaica in 1956 and is one of the few surviing members of a group of Jamaicans who were influential in promoting Jamaican music and culture in the UK.

From his early days in the UK, Daddy Vigo has promoted and supported the development of Jamaican reggae music and continues to make a positive impact through his love of music and its origins.

He was the original 'selector' for the UK's first sound system and played each night for seven years at the 'Roaring Twenties Club' in London's West End. Daddy Vigo is the founder of the 'Original People's Sound' sound system and proprietor of the now world-famous 'People's Sound Record Shop' in the heart of Notting Hill.
