Tilmann Otto (April 19, 1975 in Osnabrückmarker, Germanymarker), better known by his stage name Gentleman, is a Germanmarker Reggae musician.

Person

Gentleman resides in Cologne, but sometimes names Jamaicamarker as his home away from home. He is the son of a Lutheran pastor. He is the father of two children named Samuel and Tamica, and married to Tamika, a background singer of the Far East Band, which has been supporting him since his first concert tour of Germany in 2002.

Music

He has been traveling to Jamaicamarker regularly since he was 16 years old. Legend has it that he became hooked on his brother's Reggae records and thus wanted to get to know Jamaica first-hand. The island has become a second home for him.In the meantime, Gentleman is also regarded as a popular reggae artist in Jamaica as well, which he regards as an honor, being a European. His career began with the collaboration of the band Freundeskreis which produced the song "Tabula Rasa." After beginning his career as a Deejay, his music oriented itself on the classic form of the reggae genre, like that of Bob Marley. He sings mainly in English or rather Patois (Jamaican-Creole). With songs like "Send A Prayer," Gentleman expresses his deep belief in God, without referring to a particular religion. His album, Confidence, climbed to number 1 on the German album charts in 2004.
