Stikki Rising Jamaican Artiste
Brian Williams was born March 4th 1980 in Spur Tree district in the Parish of Manchester. He is the 4th child for his parents Sesciel Hayden and Ralph Williams. He grew up with his brothers and sister and soon started to sing at church where his musical interest was inspired. After gaining his early childhood education at Fairfield All Age, he moved to Bellefield Comprehensive high School where he started to write songs. Very soon he was performing at his schools Bar-B-Q and at other events in his community using the stage name “Willy” a name taken from his last name Williams. After he left high school in 1997 he wrote more songs and was still performing. In early 2000 he did his first professional recording at Cell Block recording studio in Kingston. This was a dancehall song entitled “I can get her”. After changing to write conscious lyrics his stage name changed to “Stikki” a name given to him by his friends at Heart because of his stick body structure.
