Ifrika on the rise

Words by Martei Korley

In a time where reggae and dancehall is often described as needing some ex-factor; it is interestingly enough often a return to the basics that provides it.
Queen Ifrika has on her latest effort “Montego Bay” done so better than most. The one-drop riddims she flows on are actually true one-drop rather than the tinny substitute being pawned off as the real thing these days.
In Ras Kassa The Guru’s video, a tribute to every woman, Ifrika showcases her versatility and the many roles a woman has to play in this modern world. All cast in something as mundane as a supermarket… Large Up, Ifrika!
