TORONTO ENJOYS FLIPPA MAFIA’S FLOSSING
When Flossing King, Flippa Mafia, took to the stage at the Platinum Banquet Hall in Toronto, Canada two weekends ago, he delivered a still-talked-about performance and left fans wanting more … and more. And, what’s more significant, Flippa was the only act on the bill.
Flippa, who rose to prominence in the dancehall late last year, is undoubtedly enjoying an exceptional run, and one which he is definitely capitalizing on.
The King of Floss as he is known, scored number one last year with the hit single Dem Yah and Dem Yah, and when he performed this song for fans during his 20-minute stint on stage, it was clear that the deejay had cemented his place in dancehall history.
Among the other songs from his ever-growing repertoire which he performed were When You Floss, The Girls Done Like me and, naturally, the highly controversial Unfinished House, which is one of the most played songs in the dancehall just now..
“Is one of the biggest songs in the dancehall now, and the video is also getting rave reviews,” Flippa said in an after-show interview.
It was this single which brought the undisputed King of Flossing in contention with deejay Bounty Killer, whose mansion on the hills is ‘unfinished’. But Flippa insists that there was nothing personal in the lyrics, he was just expressing himself the best way he knows how.
Flippa Mafia will appear on Reggae Sumfest Dancehall Night scheduled for Thursday July 23 in Montego Bay, Jamaica
