Since signing with Savage 100, Militant has really shown his versatility and seriousness about his career.
Growing up, things weren’t always easy for Militiant, and his family often struggled to provide everything he and his sister needed, but he credits those hard times for turning him into the strong individual he is today. He knew he wanted to be a performer by the time he was 8 years old when he started playing the drums. Four years later, he moved on to the trumpet, and then continued to learn various brass instruments all throughout high school. He also began writing and vocal performances when he was still a teen. Surprisingly, he started off as a rapper! Some of Militant’s greatest influences are Capleton, Sizzle, Lutan Fyah, Bushman, and Luciano, but he listens to many different artists.
Rastafarianism has influenced Militant Fyah’s music a great deal, because finding the faith helped him to look at life situations in a more positive way, and he also sees music as a way to spread positivity and unification globally.

Always putting his family first, Militant recognises the challenge of being an artist on the cusp of being able to make music a full time career. Right now, the fact that he has a 9-5 to help support his fiancee and daughter makes the artist lifestyle difficult, but on the other hand, their love is also a driving force behind his success.
