Wilford Thomas Biography
Wilford Thomas was born in Jamaica and raised in a little district call Content just on the outskirts of May Pen, Clarendon. At age 8 he joined the church choir and sang at Christmas Concerts in his hometown. His friends always wanted him to sing and record his songs. Wilford and his brother Carlton and loved to sing. Country & Western songs were his favorite. Marty Robbins big hit song..."Elpaso" made him quite famous in his district even in the church they were making requests for him to sing that song.
In the 1970’s he was known as “Black Pearl” (named after his pearly white teeth) He recorded a song titled “Take a message” which got a lot of airplay on the radio stations in Jamaica, at that time he was guest singer along with Glen Washington for a band named “Names and Faces”.
Wilford migrated to Canada in 1980 and was employed with a security company, as a patrol driver on the midnight shift. The radio on the job was his only company. So he would search for suitable stations to listen to. One night he came across a county music station named CFGM, which made him very happy because he had never listened to a country radio station before, country music was only being played once in a while on the radio stations in Jamaica.
Gene Watson, George Strait, and Jim Reeves were some of the singers he listened to the most...Gene Watson and George strait songs played a lot’ he was fascinated with this one song, "I don't need a thing at all"
A few months ago on a Sunday morning, Wilford was on Youtube searching for Karaoke songs, he came across the song "I don't need a thing at all" as he sang along with the music, it just seems right and sounded good.
He asked his brother Carlton Thomas (Thomas CCT) and some friends to listen to it, the response was overwhelming. Hence the reason why he decided to record this song
I would like to this opportunity to thank his brother Thomas CCT who has motivated Wilford over the years and is producing this song.
I do hope you all will like this song as much as I do.
Thank you all.
WHO IS E-SENTT

His Early Life
Carlton Thomas was born in Howell’s Content Clarendon, Jamaica He went to Denbigh Secondary school, now Denbigh High. His mother Cordilla White and father Wilford George Thomas are of Cuban ancestry.
HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY
E-Sentt started singing at a very young age, from the day he learned to talk.
He and his brother Wilford used to play at community sound clashes (musical competitions where crew members showcased their skills against each other), whenever they got the chance to do so.
People from the district would come to listen to them, and after their performances, they would choose the winner.
As time progressed they started singing at youth clubs, schools, and social gatherings. His brother Wilford was always doing solos. In 1973, E-Sentt formed a group called the “Third Generation “and became the lead singer. The name of the group was then changed to “The Improvers”.
The Improvers performed in Jamaica, and worked with many famous artists, like Mighty Diamond, The Culture, Barbara Jones, Maytones, and the list goes link Records was distributing the group’s hit song “Out where the Sun Shine'' which gets a lot of airplay all over Jamaica, and England. Unfortunately, many people are guilty of bootlegging this song.
Well-known artists, Game-Changing and Frenchie King from England did some songs for them. One of the tracks entitled “Moving” went to #30 on top of the pot in England. Despite all these successes, the group derived nothing, and their pockets were empty while the pockets of others became full. As E-Sentt puts it, that's the life of a singer. E-Sentt released “Out Where The Sun Shine” YouTube and ” Moving” in 2020 YouTube
E -Sentt experienced many obstacles and because of the struggles he faced, in 1980 he got the opportunity to travel overseas and he migrated to Canada. He continued to practice his trade as a tailor and designer.
E-Sentt is an awesome tailor and a talented designer with 46 years of experience. He started his business on Eglinton Ave West, at Oakwood Avenue, Canada, sewing for international artists. His store was called Tommy`s Fashions. At that time, he was the lead singer for a band in Canada when he met Prince Mohamed Aka George Nooks. The band he was singing with George Nooks. He was using the band for performing at nightclubs, along with Julie Spence, Nana Mclean, and other artists. E-Sentt loved the music but he gave up the band, due to financial challenges and focused on his tailoring and designing business.
Even though he had something good going, the producers were not giving him the recognition he deserved.
Changing Lifestyle (His New Journey)
In 1995 E-Sentt was' ' born again’’. He became a new creation in Jesus Christ. He talks about his journey in the church where he has learned that the majority of sick people go to church to get well. Even though some will get healing and some will not. Many remain sick spiritually and physically because they lack the discerning spirit to identify persons who can guide them towards their “healing ground”.This can result in bad experiences. We have to be careful who we talk to when we are in need of healing.
E- Sentt firmly believes that people have to know God for themselves, listen to his voice, and he will train them to be like him. Through the trials, you will get strength and inspiration. It was a journey, but he graduated with honor from God. He now knows to walk as a child of the King.
In 2010, he released his first gospel album, entitled “Oh Why”. He goes by the name link. Thomas on that album. In 2012 he migrated to Houston Texas, USA. He released another album, entitled ‘Success” under the name Tommy CCT. The album was distributed by Tate Music Group. His third album entitled “You're Not Alone” under the name “Minister Tommy CCT '' was also released. E –Sentt believes he was not treated well. He did not get the publicity from Tate Music Group as he should have. They only lined their pockets leaving his pocket empty. He had similar bad experiences with Hit Man Record from LA and V-Pal Record.
