Fast-rising Reggae entertainer Koffee has postponed the release of her debut EP titled “Rapture.”
The highly anticipated project was scheduled for a February 8 release however will be delayed until further notice.
The “Throne” hitmaker’s team says the release date was pushed back because they are fully committed to ensuring they deliver the best final product to Koffee’s fans. A new date will be announced soon.
The 18-year-old Jamaican native, Mikayla “Koffee” Simpson is currently enjoying the success of her breakout single “Toast” which is currently dominating the local and international airwaves and charts.
Born in Spanish Town, just outside of Kingston, Jamaica, Koffee began writing lyrics in her bedroom having been inspired by the likes of reggae legends Protoje and Supercat, to more recently, Chicago rapper Smino and UK rap star Giggs.
In Janurary 2018, reggae hero Coco Tea brought Koffee onto the stage at Rebel Salute; her idol Protoje also asked her to perform with him, while Grammy-nominated Chronixx, one of Jamaica’s biggest contemporary reggae stars and another huge inspiration, invited Koffee to join him on Seani B and Mistajam’s recent BBC 1Xtra shows broadcast from Tough Gong Studios.
Although small in stature and disarmingly unassuming, Koffee’s modesty — and height — belies huge amounts of talent. The 5’0, self-described “sing-jay-guitarist” is one of the most exciting, forward-thinking, globally-focused teenage talents to emerge this year. Having just played a string of shows with her hero Chronixx earlier this week in the UK at BBX 1Xtra Introducing Live, Alexander Palace and the Zincfence Sessions at Bush Hall, Koffee is poised and ready to take over in 2019.
