Desmond Faada Johnson was born in Kingston Jamaica in 1962 and went to England in 1980. After and few years studying and working, FAADA began writing and publishing full time and in 1983 founded Akira Press Publications. "My writing is a compulsion. A fight with forces and a fight against forces to produce language and poetry that relish in the depth and eternal soul of the African. In my world, music is dominant. It is the guttural chants of the Drums, passion and the potent sounds of the mighty singers wailing to vibes of love, struggle, courage and righteousness. The poems were conceived in the vestibule of a peoples yearning for sound and power, empowering us beyond politics and the folly of Post Colonial life, with its distress and servitude lifestyles."

In 1984 Desmond Faada Johnson was appointed Writer in Residence at Riverside Studios in Hammersmith, UK and in 1985 he became Writer in Residence at St. Paulâs Way School London, UK.

He subsequently completed several successful tours in Holland, Norway, Bermuda and UK In 1991 Desmond Faada Johnson took up a post with Westminster Libraries as Ethnic Advisor, where he worked for three years.
