Massive congratulations are in order for young reggae sensation Koffee, whose debut EP Rapture was nominated for a Grammy award.
Its been a monumental year for young reggae sensation Koffee who got her first Grammy nomination.
Just a year ago, Koffee was not yet a household name, but she was well on her way to taking over the reggae genre on a scale we haven’t seen in many years. Upon the release of her first single off her Rapture EP, “Toast,” a new star was born, and the rest of the world recognized it quickly.
The reggae/dancehall star’s debut single is arguably one of the longest-running hits in a year in the dancehall space for a very long time.
As we know, the genre frequently refreshes with a new sound, and what was hot last month isn’t necessarily even warm anymore today. However, “Toast” was fire all year round.
The 19-year-old, real name Mikayla Simpson, created history becoming the youngest solo Reggae artiste to be nominated in the category.
Koffee’s ‘Rapture’ is up against Mass Manipulation by Steel Pulse, As I Am by Julian Marley, The Final Battle: Sly & Robbie vs Roots Radics by Sly and Robbie and Roots Radics and More Work to be Done by Third World.
The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards ceremony is scheduled for January 26, 2020, at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
It will recognize the best recordings, compositions, and artists of the eligibility year, running from October 1, 2018, to August 31, 2019.
The first project, first number 1 record, first Grammy nomination, this was the ultimate year for young Koffee in her early career. The “Burning” songstress is still basking in the success of her Rapture EP, which continues to yield more prestigious accomplishments.
Just to be nominated for a Grammy is a win in itself, but Koffee is looking to break even more records should she be a victor.
Currently, every Jamaican wish they could just vote for the youngest candidate to ensure her win, but unfortunately, this prestigious award is not just anyone’s say. We will have to wait and see.Will you be watching? Congratulations Koffee!
Alicia Keys will host the ceremony.
