A Supernova Lights up the Sky and Brings Fyah to Earth.
A Supernova Lights up the Sky and Brings Fyah to Earth.Like the rush one gets from drinking a strong cup of caffeinated coffee; that is the rush or sensation Reggae/Dancehall artist Koffee delivers to her fans with each performance. The Jamaican born Spanish Town native whose birth name is Mikayla Simpson — is taking the world by storm and quickly proving herself as a non-violent, uncontained tempest in the ocean. As she reminds her fast-growing fanbase that she’s never stuck in the Ocean. “Yuh mi have the waves never stuck inah di ocean, Koffee have the style dem smoother dan a lotion
Why?”At the 2018 Rebel Salute, Dancehall legend Cocoa Tea introduces Koffee as the next Jamaican “‘Female‘ Sensation to come out of Jamaica.” He was wrong. Koffee is the next Reggae/Dancehall and possibly Pop sensation to come from out of Jamaica — female or male, period. Once introduced by Cocoa Tea, Koffee jogged on stage, she thanked the audience and walked the entire breadth of the stage.
While exhibiting controlled nervous energy that says, I got this, she then walks back to the center of the stage and takes control of the minds of the concert-goers. She began her chant with the words, “Raggamuffin, Reggae beat;” and suddenly her eyes began to smile and one could tell right away she was in her element. Indeed, she was on the beat — to date, it is one of her best performance. Cocoa Tea’s intro of Koffee is reminiscent of Diana Ross introducing a young Michael Jackson on the Ed Sullivan Show. And the rest is history as they say.
The newly minted star is growing and getting better with each live performance. For those of us who have recently come to the Koffee table or have not yet gotten a whiff of the freshly brewed Koffee, Koffee is a Reggae/Dancehall artist with the potential of becoming a mega Pop sensation. She has already bridged the Atlantic Ocean between her native Jamaica and Britain and is making some waves in other EU nations and the Caribbean Islands.
She has matched the British chart-topping record of another teenage Jamaican singer, Millie Small who had a 1964 mega-hit entitled “My Boy Lollipop.” Koffee’s flexible writing style has allowed her to fused or paraphrased snippets of lyrics from some US-based Rap artists as well as old-school Jamaican artists such as another UK Singles chart-topper teenage duo, Althea, and Donna “See mi in a ‘alter back, Sey mi gi’ you heart attack” phrase from Uptown Top Ranking song from 1977 that reached number 1 in the UK Singles Chart in 1978. Koffee’s spits the words in her hit song Raggamuffin’s, “Mi gi dem heart attack inah mi ‘alter back.”

My usual course of action in such cases is to ignore such acts that I’m not familiar with — at all. As fate would have it, I clicked on the video and viewed a tomboyish presence delivering a sassy performance. I decided to check out a few other of her videos and live shows. Koffee has a style that works for her.
Her on-stage persona is somewhat of a throwback to Run D MC, Lil’ Bow Wow or more like a Jay-Z and less of a Rumpshaker like Lil’ Kim and others of her ilk. She is decidedly female. Koffee is to date has decided to sell her talent to the world and not her “sex.”
In interviews, Koffee said her life’s goal was to become a Pharmacist (and peddle government-approved drugs) but as fate would have it, she’s become a drug to the brain of many people. She’s peddling a real healing kind of godsent drug — music.
On her way to becoming prolific, song writer she’s known for lining up in the verses of her songs a trifecta lyrics a succession of hits. She seems determined to prove herself as a great musical talent — not a romp shaker — who just happens to be female. She can hold her own next to any act male or female.
On July 16, Koffee joined the pool of great artists who have had the privilege of gracing the stage of the Late Night Show hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
There was a void waiting to be filled with the right energy and Mikayla Simpson aka Koffee has stepped in to fill that space. So where K is Koffee and R is a Rapture and B squared is the blessings she brings. Like all forces in nature, Koffee is neither created or destroyed, it can only change its form. Her mother should be proud of her and be applauded for her near cultured upbringing.https://youtu.be/IaG3X9pcKf0
