Michigan & Smiley

Michigan & Smiley

Profile:
Papa Michigan (born Anthony Fairclough) and General Smiley (born Erroll Bennett) were among the first dual-toasters on the first wave of Dancehall style in Jamaica. Beginning in the late 1970s while still in school, the humorous duo (Smiley got his name because he never smiles) scored immediately with "Rub a Dub Style" and a toasted Real Rock version named "Nice up the Dance".
Erroll Bennett shouldn't be confused with the Jazz-Funk percussionist mostly known as Erroll 'Crusher' Bennett.
