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’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.
Buju Celebrates First Birthday Post Release in A Major Way. VIDEO INSIDE.
Mark Myrie, the Jamaican reggae and dancehall giant the world knows best as Buju Banton, has been enjoying his freedom. He was released from US prison, having served a 9-year sentence, in December 2018 and since that time, the artiste’s spirit has been nothing short of triumphant.
On Monday night at the AC Hotel by the Marriott in New Kingston, Jamaica, the artiste celebrated his 45th birthday. He made a grand entry, showing gratitude with hearty smiles at the event which would mark his first official birthday celebration post release. Like fine wine, Buju assented to his 45th birth milestone and even with his simple and humble ways, fans of the artiste could tell that the best was yet to come.
The all white affair saw a number of well known Jamaican friends of the artiste in attendance, among them Sean Paul, Jamaica Deejay and personality Jabba and Romain Virgo. Buju’s Long Walk to Freedom Tour has seen him take stages around the Caribbean including Trinidad and a Tobago and Guyana shows hosted by High a Frequency Entertainment. Most recently, Buju crossed international waters, taking the stage in Amsterdam. His presence on stage, each time, has been nothing short of momentous, and some may say, near spiritual. At his Birthday “get together” on Monday, prior to engaging in chit chat with his friends and family, Buju prayed. It would be a symbol of his gratitude and love to the Most high God for all that he has gotten him through.
Nadie Hits Em With ‘Fatt.’ Now, They Can’t Stop Lookin’.
She’s a thicky and she ain’t afraid to show it off. Nadia Batson’s made no qualms of her heavy set physical attributes, these days showing off what she’s got like nobody’s business, making it abundantly clear that she’s comfortable in her skin. The gorgeous Caribbean vocalist recently unleashed a spankin’ new single that’s got everyone talking and believe it or not, the track’s title is ‘FATT.’
Batson’s been touring the world in the aftermath of the success of her 2019 hit single, ‘So Long’. In recent weeks, the SASS band leader made her presence felt in places like Dominica, St. Kitts, Petite Martinique, St. Vincent, New York, St. Lucia and Toronto. She’s even won an award for her contribution to the culture and music of Trinidad and Tobago from Montreal, Canada.
Batson’s physique has proven engrossing to patrons over the past few years, the artiste never shying away from showing skin when she hits the stage. Her latest track, ‘FATT’, on the Caution Riddim, produced by International Stephen and Vibez Productionz is seemingly a ode to the thick girls. She’s been getting that much required nod of approval from the radio personalities in T&T, making it very possible that this single will find its way sailing sweetly into T&T’s carnival 2019.
