Ruffy & Tuffy


“Othis ‘Tuffy Radikal’ Newton is a singer of unique caliber. His special tone and expression are used to bridge culture and roots with dancehall. This mellow singer has a history in Reggae Music Fraternity, being half of the duo Ruffy and Tuffy, twin brothers. Both were born to a Rastafari Empress in the inner city of Kingston, Jamaica. His mother named him Otis after the great soul singer Otis Redding. He started his musical journey at the age of seven, singing in Nyabinghi choir, and made his first stage appearance dancing on stage with Bob Marley, and the I-Threes at age 13. Ruffy and Tuffy gained popularity with a song dating back to 1985 called ‘Take One Step’, which was released by Rockers International Label. This was followed by an album titled ‘Climax’ which was released in Europe two years later, consisting of four songs with the version on the flip side. Sales from the album was very encouraging, especially in Europe, and this helped spark another release in 1992 called ‘Harm no One’ and ‘Danger Zone’ produced by Augustus Pablo also on Rockers International Label. …”
