Elephant Man, also known as the Energy God, born O'Neil Bryan on
September 11, 1975 in Kingston, Jamaica, is a dancehall musician.
Bryan's stagename stemmed from his large ears, which led to the
nickname Dumbo in his youth. He started out his musical career
as a member of the Scare Dem Crew, later continuing as a solo artist.
He was later characterized for several trademarks, such as his
dyed yellow-orange hair, his unique low-key voice, and his stage
performance, which included jumping and running, or even climbing
on stage props and monitors. His acoustic trademark is marked by
a light lisp.
Bryan had his first international recognition when he and Puma
settled a contract for using his single "All Out" for
its Olympics commercial campaign in 2004.
He also had a song called "Willie Bounce" that appeared
on several Mixtapes in early 2006. It sampled the first few bars
from "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor.
Recently, Bryan signed with New York-based label Bad Boy Records
and released Let's Get Physical on November 6, 2007. The first
single is called "Five-O" and features Wyclef Jean. Another
track on the album will feature Diddy and Busta Rhymes, and it
was produced by Cipha Sounds and Solitair.
Many of his songs are found on various Riddim Driven albums by
VP Records and Greensleeves Records’s Rhythm Album series.
He performs on popular riddims such as "Diwali," "Coolie," "Stepz," and "Bubble
Up," among others.
The Gully Creeper dance, for which Bryan created a song, was danced
by Usain Bolt at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing after winning
the gold medal and breaking a world record in the 200 meter sprint.
 Legal issues
Bryan has been criticised for his lyrics calling for violence
against gay people. In 2003 British LBGT group OutRage! called
for the arrest and prosecution of several dancehall stars including
Elephant Man, Bounty Killer and Beenie Man for violation of hate
crimes statutes. In 2004 he was dropped from the MOBO awards.
Since then pressure from his record company and agreement with
gay rights groups to avoid songs with lyrics deemed to incite homophobic
violence have allowed him to perform in the UK. In 2009, his scheduled
appearance at Toronto's Caribana festival was canceled for similar
