Destiny's father was an extraordinary dancer and popular dancing instructor. He loved the women and of course Destiny's mother.
There was always a spiritual and musical culture in the house, Destiny says. His mother loved singing, and she took her three- year old son to stagings. As Destiny had a wonderful voice people wanted him sing. He grew up in a spiritual and religious atmosphere in the ghetto.
Shaped by his ambit Destiny very soon became interested in the the rights of the poor and supported them by his songs. His numerous songs report about his multifaceted life, love songs, suppression, violence, Black Power and the High Tec Reality with their impact on man.

Bob Marley and the Rastafary Movement influenced him very early. When he fell ill in 1979, the performing artist remembered: I remember sleeping with a book on my bed and a pen, writing, writing, always writing. He thinks of himself as Bob Marley's spiritual lineage, descendant. But he never copies his way of singing. He is an original artist combined with a style of his own, that's what his first manager Eddy Ayoung said about him.
