After Kaporal Maïky, Admiral T, Jeune Sergent and Caporal Nigga, Colonel Reyel is the new soldier of the Antilles dancehall army. The 26-year-old artist owes his success to his single "Celui", a title that immediately won over fans of ragga zouk. A native of Guadeloupe, Colonel Reyel spent his childhood in Paris, France. Before entering the reggae dancehall scene, Reyel had a passion for rap. In the early 2000s, he sang in a band of deejays known as the Septentorial Crew. The group's line-up has changed several times since then.
