Ten years ago, singer-comedian Kafinal teamed up with Sambo for the amusing and witty track 'Cooking Dat Pwile'. The song created an impact locally and created a large fan base for both entertainers.

Now, after migrating to Canada, Kafinal has begun to reap success on the entertainment scene there. Earlier this year, he teamed with veteran toaster Daddy U-Roy for the track Nah Complain, which topped several reggae charts in Canada and the United States.

Kafinal has been performing on most of the festivals in Canada and subsequently earned the nickname Canada's Festival King.

He has won several awards for his work. This year alone, he was named Singer of the Year at the Peabo Awards in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada. His other accolades this year include the Trailblazer Award at the 25th staging of the annual Jamaica Day Festival in Toronto. Top Performer and Song of the Year (for Nah Complain featuring Daddy U-Roy) were presented to Kafinal by Uprising Music and Entertainment Production.

Kafinal is excited about his recent achievements.

"This year was an excellent year for me musically. It was a year filled with progress and amazing highlights," he said. "While there are many moments to be thankful for, including topping multiple charts around the world with the song Nah Complain and being recognised and awarded as an entertainer, for me there is a more satisfying feeling performing for the fans and seeing the overwhelming responses."

His latest release is the single Nuh Lock off Di Dance, which was produced by Paul 'Computer Paul' Henton. Kafinal is in the studios working on new music, including an EP he plans to release early next year.
