MoJo Herb a.k.a. Christopher Andre Pearce was born on October 26, 1982 in Duhaney Pen “Berlin”, St. Thomas-Jamaica.
He grew up in the ghetto and started writing poetry in primary school. While attending Morant Bay High School in St. Thomas, a community friend, Richard Gray told Christopher he wanted to do a song collaboration record with him for the Tastetee Competition. Chris agreed and the first song he wrote/performed was called “Government Thing”.
Shortly thereafter, they formed a group called
Livity Crew, where they built up their writing and
live performance skills.
Christopher’s grandfather Delroy Pearce, was the original creator of the island-wide known bitters/roots called
MoJo Herb. He decided to use this name as homage to his families’ entrepreneurial legacy.
His father Maurice Pearce is also a local musician.

Some artists who have inspired him in music are: Tupac Shakur, Bob Nesta Marley, Sizzla Kalonji and Bounty Killer.
