Tilmann Otto (born April 19, 1975 in Osnabrück, Germany), better known by his stage name Gentleman, is a German Reggae musician.

Personal life

Gentleman lives in the Neubrück area of Cologne, but sometimes names Jamaica 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 is 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.


Gentleman has been travelling to Jamaica regularly since he was 18 years old. It has been suggested that he became hooked on his brother's Reggae records and thus wanted to get to know Jamaica first-hand[citation needed]. His career began with the collaboration of the band Freundeskreis which produced the song "Tabula Rasa." After beginning his career as a Deejay, he based his style to the classic form of the reggae genre like that of Bob Marley. He sings mainly in English or Jamaican Patois. 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. After ten years of making music under the label Four Music he moved to Universal in 2010.
