About Pupa Curly Pupa Curly is a veteran Reggae Dancehall entertainer, producer and educator with a socially and politically conscious edge. After break-out hits like “You Must Wake Up” & “Crack is a Killa,” Pupa Curly went on to record a slew of timely hits like 'Dem Say Dem Free Mandela', 'Big Earthquake', and 'What's Wrong with This World' among others. Pupa Curly has performed at many of Southern California’s elite festivals including: Santa Monica Pier’s Twilight Concert Series; Kangal California Reggae Splash; Bob Marley Day; Seabreeze Festival; and UCLA’s Jazz/Reggae Festival to name a few. Other notable performances include performing at the Fifth Coronation Anniversary Ceremony for King Wilberforce Gabula Nadiope IV of Busoga Kingdom in Uganda last September. Curly has collaborated on George Clinton’s “Paint the White House Black” single on Paisley Park Records which also featured a host of ‘A-List’ Hip Hop recording artists, including Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Kam, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and many others. In the ancient tradition of GRIOTS from Africa, the edutainment continues as this veteran California Educator cements today’s important social and political issues ‘digitally’ for the unforeseeable future. “Just as Politicians and great leaders have a responsibility to inform and lead their people, so do musicians and artists. I believe music is a significant element in communicating to the people - positive and uplifting thoughts.” – Pupa Curly
