Jeffrey Wood was born in an historic Ghanaian former slave town called Cape Coast, known for its fishing, farming and artists. After becoming an orphan at an early age, he took up yoga and joined a centre for talent development where he learned music composition, dance and acrobatics, training for 12 hours daily on the beach. From there he toured Africa and beyond with a Ghanaian/Danish dance theatre group.
Immigrating to Canada in 2008, Jeffrey adopted the Mr. Fantastik moniker for both his Jah Request reggae band and his acrobatic endeavours. His daring, freestyle martial art, capoeira dance and circus tricks earned him a spot on You’ve Got Talent. He takes young and old on awesome adventures with his balancing, spinning, juggling and contortion routines.
