Though she did not live to see him perform, Kevin Scott’s grandmother had predicted that he would one day become an artiste. Today, ‘Da Prodigy’, the stage name by which he goes, has been in the music business for 15 years, and is not only singer but mentor and producer to other artistes as well.

Kevin grew up in an extended family, raised by his mother, uncles and grandparents. When his mother left for the US, he was seven years old and his now deceased and much beloved grandmother tried to do what she could to raise him but died when he was 11. After a few years, his grandfather, Edward Bailey, a retired pilot for Roraima Airways, moved out and moved on with his life.
Kevin grew up in Bent Street, near Lodge amongst friends who were always involved in illegal activities. “There was a point in time when that area was a very devastating area. Everyday you’d see things that you’d normally see on TV in the news and in the movies. Based on that environment I was hoping to make it out of that environment,” he said.
