IKAYA'S PERFORMANCES PLACE HER ON A MUSICAL HIGH
Dancehall deejay Ikaya is on a musical high following her commendable performances at a number of events, most recent of which was at St Mary Mi Come From, the cultural show staged by acclaimed fireman King Shango, aka Capleton.
In recognition of her growing popularity within the dancehall, Ikaya was no starlight act, instead she performed at 3 am, right after big gun Macka Diamond. Conscious of the fact that several artistes were waiting in the wings, Ikaya did a medley of her tunes and upped the excitement ante when she gave the cameraman a little "something to remember". She appropriately closed her set with the single, Better Whine.
Ikaya, prior to this, had strutted her stuff and rocked the stage at Guinness Summer Eclipse at The Jungle night club in Negril, Jamaica the previous weekend. The only female on the line-up, Ikaya represented well for the ladies and held nothing back as she gave a crowd-pleasing performance to a packed house.
"It was my first Negril Weekend and with everybody from all over Jamaica in that town for the long weekend I knew that I had to impress and give it my best shot," she said during a backstage interview.
When this healthy body girl with a wardrobe that earns her a second look, a dazzling smile, and a lot of sass made her recent Reggae Sumfest debut, she could not be ignored. And Ikaya took control of the Sumfest stage and "dash it pon dem without warning". By the end of her performance, she had the admiration of many, especially those who knew her buss out song Good Up, but didn't know that she was the deejay.
Always eager to please her fans, Ikaya and her management/production team Outtaroad Records, are busy in studio working on new music projects. Another video is also scheduled for release soon.
