Top Ten Selections - The Mighty Asterix

The Mighty Asterix is a legend of the New Zealand reggae scene. His MC’ing and vocal skills have seen him gain a first-class reputation both in New Zealand and internationally. Asterix began MC’ing in the early 80s in Palmerston North and was inspired by the likes of Dillinger, I-Roy, U-Roy, Dennis Brown and Frankie Paul. At the end of ‘82 he moved to Auckland and worked closely with Stinky Jim and DLT, before joining The Twelve Tribes in ‘86. Asterix eventually moved to Wellington in 2000 and now works with all of the best crews and bands in town, and has recently performed at Kaikoura Roots and Soundsplash.
