Boston-based artist, producer and founder of WildCubby Music, Yves Lewis pays tribute to his dad Jacob, a father of 22 kids.
Two years into his serendipitous solo career, and just in time for Father’s Day, producer, label owner, recording artist and son, Yves Lewis is releasing a reggae video tribute to his father, Jacob, “Papa Papa.” Including Yves, Jacob Lewis fathered 22 children…20 with his wife Julienne.
Yves says, “My father was a small scale farmer…he was illiterate. ‘Yves go to school and do you homework,’ he would say, recognizing the importance of education.”
