Master, creator of Dancehall styles. As we honor Bogle,  an icon who contributed so much dance styles, slangs and fashion trends to the fabric of Jamaica’s popular dance styles and culture. Mr. Bogle AKA Mr Wacky.  Bogle has created many house whole dancehall styles famously known for  The “Bolge” dance.  In the 1990s, Levy created the Bogle dance, Jamaica’s first crossover dance move.  He’s all about that Flava.

Bogle was called the “Dancehall Master”.  He carried the in-born spirit to seemingly create dance styles that has the nation rocking. Bogle is creator of the Willie Bounce (named after Bogle’s friend and Black Roses Crew member Willie Haggart), Wacky Dip, Urkle Dance, Sesame Street, Bogle Dance, Pelper, LOY,  Jerry Springer, Zip It Up, Hotti Hotti Bogle, World Dance, Weddy time, Jeggy Time, Summer Bounce, Row di Boat, Out and Bad, Sweeper, shackle dip, and many other popular dances.  Bogle’s legacy will live on throughout the dancehall communities;  Jamaica’s master creator of dance styles and greatest dancer of all time.  Many dancehall artists and dancers honors “Father Bogle” and give him shout-outs in songs.

BOGLE MR WACKYHe was also a major influence on breakout artists such as Elephant Man and Beenie Man, who gave shout-outs to Levy in songs like “Row Like a Boat”: “Seh Mr. Bogle have di brand new style/Come get di style, come get di style.”

Mr. Wacky is gone, but his dancing lives on”. Elephant Man who previously recorded songs for Bogle’s dances had the hit single “Willie Bounce” which is by far one of Bogle’s most popular dances. Buju Banton also recorded a song called “Bogle Dance”, which was inspired by Bogle. In R&B singer Rihanna‘s music video Rude Boy, she is seen doing “The Bogle”.  Global influencer in music dance and fashion.  Mr Wacky wants dancehall to go “Back to Basic” because dancehall moves is losing its originality. Mr wacky RIP.  The roses corner is the dancehall dimension in Kingston Jamaica.

Mr Wacky Slangs: All fruits ripe,  Ah lie, All dem deh… weh dem deh di deh, Keeping it Jeggy, You ready, Oh so badly, See the key deh,  Don’t need a toy friend for a boy friend, a the worst a dem deh… don’t ask somebody ask everybody,
