Singer, songwriter Sabrina Diva blasts on to TV screens with her debut video, 'War Downtown'.

The Sly and Robbie-produced single has already garnered excellent reviews.

Since its release, key music industry players have stamped their seal of approval. The young singer delivers great vocals on this hit-bound record, which boasts authenticity of ska, roots and reggae. This is ascribed to the legendary Toots and the Maytals' 54-46 rhythm that War Downtown smoothly floats atop.

The video's director, Mezan Ayoha, captured striking images to showcase the scandalous storyline of a love affair gone wrong. The emotionally riveting flick portrays Sabrina depressed and enraged from the lying and cheating of her lover. She warns, "You go need a doctor!" She has had enough and joins a bevy of beauties, armed and ready to break out a War Downtown. Bottles smash as thrills intensify in the captivating video.

The dramatic production marks a milestone for a then 21-year-old who chose to leave her life behind in the United Kingdom.

Prior to relocating, Sabrina snatched a rare opportunity and sang for The Queen of England. She has also performed at the Royal Albert Hall and the Indigo O2. in addition, she recorded with Alan Floyd, son of legendary songwriter Eddie 'Stax' Floyd, and also the tour manager for Beyoncé Knowles. The feverish pursuit of her dreams has led her to continue her journey at the epicentre of the global phenomenon, reggae.
