Legal name: Donovan Spalding
Burro Banton (born Donovan Spalding, 27 December 1956, Kingston, Jamaica) is a dancehall reggae deejay popular in the mid-1980s and 1990s.
He is most famous for his anthem "Boom Wah Dis", which was recorded on the Steely & Clevie riddim called "Street Sweeper".
Burro emerged during the mid-1980s at the beginning of the digital dancehall craze started by King Jammy that also featured artists like Cutty Ranks. He is known for his very aggressive style; deep, gruff voice; and was the inspiration for many modern dancehall artists like Buju Banton, Bounty Killer, and Elephant Man.
