Italy Crowns Tifa As The New Queen Of The Dancehall

tifa-europe.jpgDiva of the Dancehall, Latifa Brown a.k.a Tifa has set a blazing trail all across Europe. Over the last three weeks, this dancehall star has been touring across Europe, and has already had performances in Austria and Germany, with upcoming performances in Italy, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Switzerland and Berlin. Tifa and Ward 21 performed to over 4,000 to 5,000 screaming fans in Wuppertal, Germany who stayed in the pouring rain just to see these stars in action.

Leading up to Tifa's performance in Leece, Italy on the 10th of August, Tifa was featured on the cover of News Fever Magazine (Italian Publication), along with other great Jamaican acts and also received a full-page spread in which they crowned her as "La Nuova Regina Della Dancehall", which translates to "The New Queen of the Dancehall".

"I am not sure if I am deserving of that title as yet, but I am humbled and flattered that someone would think that of me", stated a noticeably excited Tifa when asked about her new title.

Since the Tour has begun, Tifa has already received numerous offers for future bookings, songs and album deals and is currently in negotiations to perform at a concert in Kenya in early December for over 66,000 patrons at the Kasarani Stadium.

Tifa's next stop will be at the Real Beat Higraid Reggae Festival in Czech Republic, where, Tifa will grace the stage as the first female Dancehall act ever to perform in the Czech Republic.

Tifa is still enjoying steady radio rotation for her songs, "Bottom of the Barrel" on the Estrogen Riddim, which is already featured on some of the local dancehall charts, as well as "Can't Stop me" on the Tear Up Jeans riddim. The Bottom of the Barrel Music Video has already been voted to the #10 spot on Hype TV.

Tifa's European tour began on July 18th and will continue until the 30th of August. This is is the first major tour for the artist who burst onto the dancehall scene in early 2005.

Come on, Come on, Come on!!! Tifa cannot be 'The Queen of Dancehall', her career not even reach anywhere yet. She doesn't have a hit and I can't even recite one of her songs. Stop trying to fool the people.

There is only 1 queen of the dancehall... & it is not Tifa. She's not captivating enough or been in the industry long enough to prove her sustainability. Muma Saw has been in this thing since Tifa a sh*t her nappy and still can pack a venue, get forward and have mad love from both man & woman. When Tifa can do that, then she could possibly be considered a ... countess or baroness or some other title.
Plus, who is Italy to make that decision - dem know nuttin bout dancehall?! If I were a Jamaican dj I wouldn't want Italy to give me that title - that must come for the dancehall inventors (JAMAICANS).

"I am not sure if I am deserving of that title as yet, but I am humbled and flattered that someone would think that of me", stated a noticeably excited Tifa when asked about her new title.
There it is for the stupid and silly people read it. Tifa has a whole lot going for her, she is talented, she is educated with a degree and certificates that most don't have, she is beautiful and personable. Allow her to enjoy the glory and praise which is someone else's opinion, stop bashing her, envy and jealousy won't put you anywhere and for the entertainers that can't read and do what other people tells you to do or say, ask someone to read the article for you, get your facts straight and at that point you can state your constructive opinion.

Keep up the good work Tifa'
Haters.....i hope you will find it in your heart to support a talented young woman....

There is only one person who qualifies for the title "Dance Hall Queen" and that is Lady Saw. She deserves it and none of the other new comers can walk in her shoe - maybe some day in the future, but not now.
