Koffee had Nigerians talking last year as she performed an impressive rendition of Burna Boy’s hit track ‘Ye,” during a show at the BBC’s 1xtra Live Lounge in April.
The singer’s cover was so powerful that it got a nod from Burna Boy himself who hinted at a possible collaboration in the future.
At the just concluded 62nd Grammy Award, the 19-year-old made history by becoming the youngest and only female ever to win a Grammy for Best Reggae Album. Koffee, whose real name is Mikayla Simpson, snagged her first Grammy in the category of Best Reggae Album for her “Rapture” EP.
She is not only the youngest solo act and the only female artiste ever to win the coveted award in this category, but she is also the youngest Jamaican ever to win a Grammy.
