Kemar " Prince Talib " Turner
Kemar Andrew Turner aka Prince Talib (former Timmy T) was born November 1st 1982 in a small town called Jackson Town, Trelawny. At a very young age Prince Talib was introduce to the performing arts by his Grandmother who was the head of the Sunday school at the church he attended. Prince Talib went to Meadowbrook High School in Kingston and then to York Castle High School which is located in Browns Town St Ann, while attending both schools Prince Talib was still involved in performing for people in school and also sports.
2002 while attending Moneague Community College "Prince Talib was introduced to a group by the name of turf squad along with 4 other members which he became a part of. This group was based in Ocho Rios they specialized in writing Reggae and Hip Hop music. As the months went by the group dedicated their time in writing and performing at functions that the school held such as Ms Moneague, Dorm parties and among their friends.
In 2003 the group decided to make some changes in their group and the first change was the name change. The group went from turf squad to M.O. which means Modus Operandi. Some members decided they wanted a change and it was not a change of name but a change from the group, so one member decided to seek another path. M.O. started working harder and in 2005 they released their 1st single 'Treat me right' along with a video which was accepted by the public with open eyes and ears. The song opened doors for M.O. who performed at the famous summer beach party 'Fully Loaded' also did stints at the 'Best of Jamaica food festival' 'Portmore awards' 'Ms Jamaica northern’ also the
well-known local T.V. show that is aired on CVM TV 'Our Voices’.
