Errol "Johnny" Osbourne is a popular Jamaican reggae and dancehall singer who rose to success in the late 1970's and mid 1980's. His album Truths and Rights was a notable roots reggae success and featured the reggae classics "Jah Promise" and the album's title track, "Truth and Rights". However, he is probably best known for his mid 1980's dancehall reggae hits "Buddy Bye", on King Jammy's classic Sleng Teng riddim, and "Water Pumping".
