Fijian born rapper Jonny Virgo has lived across the South of England: London to Bristol. Born to a Jamaican mother and a father from Barbados he grew in strength and intelligence until he gained the name the Professor, aged 10 as a child prodigy in the Church, a youth preacher. scholarship worth £100,000 and was schooled with princes and future Queens.When he wasn't studying he always hustled working cleaning offices to help his family. Blessed with many gifts he learned to speak Russian, French and Japanese, and became a published poet. All the time he was rapping, just using his natural talent and passion for freestyle rhymes to get women and blag holidays. Ever since he hi-jacked his first mic aged 14 at a Courtney Pine concert, literally jumping onstage in front of 1,000s of people, he has practised his skills as a live performer at each and every opportunity both up and down this country and abroad, rocking crowds in Austria, Germany and 10,000 feet above sea level in the French Alps as well as across the UK.

In this process he has performed on 1xtra, been played on Kiss FM, been a Five time champion at Berkshire's legendary Malthouse function. He has also recorded songs that range from the hilarious to the profound, all with unique hip hop beats. He has played alongside musicians including: Courtney Pine, Roots Manuva, Estelle and Sway, Biz Markie, Mos Def, Jurassic 5, Speech Debelle, Courtney Pine, Sway and Shy FX, Skinnyman, Deadly Hunta, The Diplomats. Having previously performed with 360 Physical crew under the name Agenda he has been labelled both “an off the head master” by Hip Hop Connection and a” modern day Zepheniah” by others.As part of that group he toured the UK from Brighton to Glasgow along with fellow members Killa Kela, Koastie and the Flaredycats. Yet this restless pilgrim on a musical journey has performed at huge drum and bass raves, in breakbeat arenas and for straight hip hop crowds.2008 saw him push a live band project called Works in Progress which saw him branch out working in reggae, funk and acoustic styles and all of this has influenced his sound.
