Sheldon Blackman has carved out his slice of paradise in the reclusive hills of Oslo, Norway. Blackman, son of the late soca inventor Ras Shorty I (Garfield Blackman), owns, lives and farms half an acre of the sloping mountain side in the Norwegian Svart Skog—Black Forrest.
It is a life he is accustomed to, having grown up on the Piparo estate with his father, mother Claudette and many siblings. In the Svart Skong he’s surrounded by slightly different produce in apples, strawberries and berries. Shoots of corn, pumpkin, potatoes, carrots, celery and other spices were also visible when the talented singer/songwriter took Kitcharee through his garden.
