From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Elephant Man (born September 11, 1976 as O'Neil Bryant in Kingston, Jamaica, also known as The Energy God) is one of the most colorful characters on the dancehall scene. Nicknamed after his ear-size resembling to the popular Disney cartoon-character Dumbo, "Ele" started out his musical career as a member of the Scare Dem Crew, later continuing as a solo artist. He was later characterized for several trademarks, such as his yellow-orange hair, his unique low-key voice, or his stage performance, which included excessive jumping and running, or even climbing on stage props and monitors.

The first international recognition came when Elephant Man and PUMA settled a contract for using his single "All Out" for their Olympics commercial campaign in 2004.

Elephant Man has been widely criticised for his lyrics calling for violence against "chi chi man", a Jamaican term for gay people. In 2003 British LBGT group OutRage! called for the arrest and prosecution of several dancehall stars including Elephant Man, Bounty Killer and Beenie Man for violation of hate crimes statutes .

Despite being lauded in American urban centers, the backlash for the energy god has begun. From the coloured hair to the platinum fronts and rumours of AIDS, Elephant Man has now become known in Jamaica as a poppy show
