Daniel Cacho aka Lova Boy, The self-proclaimed "Prince Ah Belize", grew up on the impoverished streets of Dangriga, Belize. A descendant of the Garifuna people Lova Boy is the son of a mother who came to America from Belize during the 1980s in pursuit of the American dream.
Like so many other children of his generation whose parents were either absent or addicted to drugs, Lova Boy credits his grandmother with giving him love, structure, and discipline.
A well-known traditional Punta singer, Elvira Lambey (Guribiyuwa) was one of Lova Boy’s earliest musical influences. But still, with his father elsewhere, a missing mother, and an abusive uncle to contend with, it wasn’t long before Lova Boy started to get into trouble and when his grandmother died it only complicated matters for the young man.
