Albert Malawi

Real Name:
Albert R. Johnson
Profile:
Albert Malawi came to Alpha Boys School in 1966. He attended the school alongside Fish Clarke (Johnny Clarke's brother), Leroy Smart & Lennie Hibbert and he learned to play drums there. By demand of Sister Ignatius, he also became selector of the Alpha sound system for 3 years (Please check the DC Soundclash article in the blog for more about the Alpha sound system). He was nicknamed Turbit (after the fish with hard bones). He left Alpha on May, 13th 1969, and thanks to his education, was able to secure the job of librarian at the university of The West Indies.
He went on to play drums for, among others, reggae royalty like Sugar Minott, Augustus Pablo and Dennis Brown.
