Biography

Artist Name: Tiko Angelos
Birth Name: Lyndon Sterling
Birth Place and Date: December 19th, St. Vincent
Official Bio
Tiko, also known as “Tiko Angelos” (“angelos” is the Greek word meaning messenger), was born Lyndon Sterling to Trinidadian parents residing in St Vincent. Shortly after his birth his parents returned to Trinidad and Tobago where he grew up and during his teenage years developed the ability to chant or deejay over beats. Although he had accepted the Lord Jesus at the age of nine, Tiko recalls his teenage and adolescent years as being spiritually unstable and it was during this period that he experimented with dancehall music and developed the art of rhyming and storytelling by weaving lighthearted comedy and informative rhymes over popular riddims. Many close to him during those years recall his successes in clashes or “lyrics for lyrics” from which he got his name T-K-O (technical knock out… because of the depth of his lyrics) the letter ‘I’ was later added to this abbreviation to give it pronunciation, and the name TIKO as born.

His firm decision to commit all to the Lord Jesus did not come until he was completing his Advanced Level Secondary Education. To many it seemed that this youth known at the time to some as Tiko Devious or Tiko Banton, had turned church boy and disappeared from the music scene altogether. Howbeit, almost six years later through the coaxing of Sherwin Gardner and others, Tiko would explode into the gospel music scene alongside a youth named Denton Peschier aka Gitta (Dan).
