For thirteen weeks, Kaydah Thomas, aka Candy K, told Jamaica of her dream in enrolling at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts.

Now, less than six weeks after walking away as the winner of the Magnum Queen of Dancehall, her dream has become reality.

Candy K confirmed to THE STAR that she was recently accepted at the college to pursue a Bachelor's Degree in Arts Management.

"School has always been the real focus and come September I'll be attending Edna Manley. I've also been busy in the studio working on my single with Anju Blaxx. It was kind of a tug o' war with choosing between Hush Mommy and Living The Life as the official Magnum winning single, but then we decided to scrap both of them and use the song which I auditioned with titled Me Name Candy K," she said.

She was also recently contacted by dancehall superstar Konshens, who invited her to do a part of a song with several other artistes.

"I've been in the studio working. I've also been doing dubs and jingles for radio stations. I have also performed at several parties and events across Kingston and also in St Elizabeth. Plus, the video for Me Name Candy K will be shot by RD Studios later this month," she said.

Questioned as to where she sees herself in the next five years, Candy K had this to say:

"I see myself as the next Queen of the Dancehall. Lady Saw was at the finale show and she told me that I was very talented. She said she see me a run it when she put it dung, so I'm confident I can be the next queen," she said.
