Koffee: living the Jamaican dream

No Rating

For a small island of aprox 3 million inhabitants where the odds are against citizens on a daily basis. With a non-existent welfare system and a National Minimum Wage of $50 USD per week. There are a few things Jamaica is very wealthy in – minerals, vegetation, a thriving tourism industry, culture, the fastest track and field athletes and some of the most talented musical artists in the world.

One such fast-rising sensation is Koffee, who, at the age of 19, has catapulted to global success within the space of a few months. Koffee came to mainstream attention when she posted an acoustic tribute to her hero – Usian Bolt, in the form of a video on Instagram. Usain Bolt acknowledged her video by re-posting to his Instagram page.

Growing up in a church household, Koffee was inspired by music at the age of 5, as mentioned in her interview with The Voice Newspaper in February. Her background has clearly influenced her lyrics. Positive, uplifting, wholesome lyrics which are not typically heard in the dancehall are stiring up a frenzy with tracks such as “Toast”.

Koffee’s success has already taken her to the UK, USA, performing at venues such as the O2, garnering three awards at IRAWMA for Best Female Vocalist, Best New Entertainer, and Best Teen Entertainer. Press, TV and radio appearances including HOT 97 in New York. Numerous shows, sharing the stage with legendary artists, and receiving social media acknowledgements from the likes of Rihanna. Koffee is currently hot on the promotional trail of her debut EP entitled “Rapture”, which was released in March and shows no sign of slowing down any time soon.
