1/2 of Toronto's Most versatile Soundcrew De Jump Up Kingz
“Making people JUMP UP since 2004, Oshawn Campbell has been energizing the Toronto
Entertainment scene one “juk” at a time.” – Darling Nicky
Hailing from the Caribbean epicentre of the North, Oshawn Campbell has emerged from the depths of basement parties and jam sessions as one of the most versatile DJs and MCs in the city. As a member of De Jump Up Kingz, Oshawn’s long list of signature events including GOT JUK, JUK IN A BOX, JUK GONE WILD, 1 SWEET JUK, COOL WUKKINGS and the highly successful GLOW THURSDAYS, Oshawn has followed the beat of his own drummer paving the way for pop, hip-hop and reggae to become mainstays at his long list of successful Soca events.
The love of music often runs in families, and Oshawn has credited his grandfather Alfred Constantine Bryan, a well known Gospel singer from Jamaica for setting an example of passion and commitment which served as inspiration to make his life’s mandate to bring music to the people. Apart from club deejaying, Oshawn has proven to be a reputable Promoter, Event Producer, and more recently, as a “Mas Man” bringing sections in Black Sage Carnival’s Band in 2011 and with Tribal Knights in 2012 for Scotiabank’s Toronto Caribbean Carnival. De Jump Up Kingz have traveled across the country to perform coast to coast, and internationally at Carnivals in Trinidad, Jamaica and Miami.
Oshawn’s strength is in his showmanship, fusing the art of deejaying, emceeing and party-rocking in a perfect blend that has people coming back for more and more. Well supported by the city’s Soca community, De Jump Up Kingz have been twice nominated for Stylus’ Soca DJ of the Year Award. Looking toward the future, Oshawn, also known for being a talented soccer player, aims to use his musical gift to inspire young people to follow their dreams and turn them into reality. De Jump Up Kingz is not just a crew name. It’s the truth. Oshawn’s unparalleled ability to select music and invigorate the crowd is unmatched. From Soca to Reggae to Top 40, Oshawn will make you Jump-Jump!
