Grammy award-winning artist Koffee, whose real name is Mikayla Simpson, will be in Dominica for the first time to perform during one of the island’s major events, ‘Carnival Gopwell’ Volume 2.
It’s at Windsor Park Sports Stadium Forecourt, Roseau on April 25. Organizer of the event, Dane ‘Danejahdane’ Smalling made the announcement.
The 20-year-old Jamaican reggae star has only been around for a coupled of years but she is already hugely popular for songs “Toast”, “Rapture”, “Haffi Make it” and “Blazin”. She created history by becoming the youngest reggae act and first female artist to win the Grammy for “Best Reggae Album” last year.
Smalling said: “Koffee is coming in and not to do playback; Koffee is coming in with her band.” He said there will be no playback for that night; all the artistes will be performing with their live band.
“Koffee just won the Grammy; she has only performed one place in the Eastern Caribbean which is Antigua. She has never been to the French Antilles and Dominica is getting her even before Barbados,” Smalling stated. “She is going to Barbados the day after, to perform at the Reggae on the Hill event.”
