Samfi defends market vendors on 'Metro A Come'
Emerging dancehall artiste Samfi is confident that she has what it takes to be the next big female star in Jamaican music.
The vivacious singjay recently made her recording debut with the release of thought-provoking single titled Metro A Come.
Well aware of the challenges she faces, Samfi is hoping the single finds traction in the local market and trigger her the trek to stardom.
"I know it won't be easy, but I am determined to become the next big female star in Jamaica. I have the talent, the looks and the drive to make it, and I'm putting in the work," she told THE WEEKEND STAR.
"This song is for all the hard-working higglers and market vendors who are trying to make an honest living to take care of their families. I know it's a constant struggle; it's not easy for them, and sometimes they face a lot of unnecessary harassment from the security forces," she said.
An accompanying music video that she produced and released on her Fruit Basket label is currently making the rounds on local cable channels and social media.
"The video is getting a lot of attention people love it. It's very lively we film it at the market in Porus," said Samfi.
Samfi was born Sophia Mullings in Porus, Manchester. She grew up surrounded by music and developed a strong love for music from a very early age.
"Music is something I love very much. I've been writing songs since I was a little girl and I've always loved singing. Being able to record and release my music for the whole world to hear is a dream come true," she said.
