Zaccheus is a Gospel reggae roots and soca artist who is driving to spread the message of Jesus Christ through his story telling songs. He states that before I sing I always pray that the song I created blesses some one who is looking for joy and fulfillment in their lives.

Zaccheus was born Wayne H. Bacchus. His parents migrated from Guyana to the United States in the early 1970’s. Wayne grew up listening to Calypso stars like Arrow, Sparrow, Lloyd Kitchener and Super Blue. Reggae influences are Yellow man, Papa San, Buju Banton, Garnet Silk, Bob Marley, Luciano and Stitche.

Wayne love for Caribbean music grew ever since he was a youth. But what inspired him to persue song writing and recording music as a career was when he entered a contest during his high school years, the contest required him to imitate any music artist of his choice. Wayne and a friend chose a reggae/hip hop collaboration hit song called “Forbidden” by “Daddy O” and “Third world”. Wayne and his friend came in third place, Wayne seen the smiles on every ones face and decided this is what he wanted to do.

On October of 1990 Wayne became a born again Christian and got together with some friends and formed a local Christian rap group called “the temporary natives”. Wayne was the only reggae singer in the group and was giving the name “Zaccheus” because he was the shortest one in the group and stuck with the name even after the group broke up.
