With a career spanning over 15 years, T.O.K. is Jamaica’s first Dancehall Quartet and with a new EP, they visited Winford Williams to discuss a few matters. Here they spoke on maintaining the friendships and careers for so long, their almost break up, their side ventures, touring, their “Taking Over” EP and Reality Show, and upcoming performances. Not a bad interview here, I’m impressed that despite the breakups of many crews and friendships in Dancehall music, they’ve managed to hold it together throughout all this time.
