Koffee has hit stages around the world since her debut onto the music circuit. She recently performed on The Ends Festival main stage in London and followed up at the Holiday Festival in Paris, before hitting The Old Festival in Antwerp and tonight, she’ll be the featured act for ‘Koffee Live in Germany’ in Dortmund. “When I evaluate myself and the society, I realise it’s better to do something worthwhile than to just do something to create a buzz,” said the Spanish Town native during her recent interview with Fox News.

Koffee is on a mission to promote positivity.

Koffee’s name has penetrated the youth market immensely in the past two years, so much so that dancehall’s more recent violent and often negative lyrics have seemingly stumbled. In April, Popcaan- another big name on the dancehall circuit, known for songs like, ‘Unruly’, ‘Ova Dweet,’ and ‘Weed Is My Best Friend’, took to social media with a message. “Man them can always sing them bag a gun song them because it’s a part of the thing, I will still sing them too but don’t expect to see none on the billboard.” The artiste had started his online rant by calling on his fellow dancehall artistes to deliver music that could be more globally accepted.

The world is looking on in awe at Koffee’s seemingly overnight influence. Amid continued social and political atrocities around the world, artistes like Koffee, Chronixx and Protoje who’ve undoubtedly proven themselves to be the new sound of reggae, give hope to many who’ve felt hopeless in recent time.

Here’s a look at Koffee’s interview with Fox News recently, in New York.

The artist whose real name is Hollice Mapp, officially withdrew from the competition last week, citing several issues that were left untreated by the organizing committee at ISM. To date, Ebuzztt understands that both parties have met, however sources close to Mr. Killa told us that the artist has no intention of performing at the competition.

On Thursday, the Newsday newspaper in Trinidad and Tobago, reported that the artist would in fact be performing. The Caribbean Prestige Foundation and ISM have since issued the following statement:

The news of Grenada’s Mr. Killa’s withdrawal from defending his title in this year’s International Soca Monarch competition has led to some fiery online debate on the matter of Trinidad and Tobago’s support of other Caribbean islands’ involvement in Carnival. Some social media critics and commentators from the Spice Isle have outright stated that there has been no support or promotion of the Grenadian artiste heading into the competition.

This morning, in Grenada, talkshow hosts on Power 95.1FM weighed in on the hot topic, going as far as to include Machel Montano in their banter, arguing that had Montano been the defending champion, complementaries would have been sent to Montano’s team with hopes of his attendance.

Here’s a look at the video clip of the on air discussion. Feel free to chime in on the issue and let us know how you feel about this situation in our comments section below.
