Count Machuki, one of Jamaica’s first Dee-Jays, way back in the 50s.  He started out on Tom the Great Sebastian’s sound system and then moved on to work with Sir Coxsone for some time.  Word has it his first lyrics were:

If you dig my jive

You’re cool and very much alive

Everybody all round town

Machukis’ the reason why I shake it down

When it comes to jive

You can’t whip him with no stick
