Taffi is ready for the big times
Dancehall artiste Taffi is ready to take her place in the musical spotlight.
The singjay, who is signed to Deezl House Production, has come a long way since finishing eighth in the 2014 edition of the Digicel Rising Stars talent show.
"I thought the experience I gained in Rising Stars was enough to prepare me for the music business. However, as it turned out, I had a lot more to learn because it is not easy to make it in the music business without a solid team behind you, which is something that I did not have until I started working with Deezl House," she said.
She continued, "Working with this label has given me the opportunity to record my songs without having to worry about marketing and promotion, because I know that they will take care of those things. This frees me up to focus on writing and recording and performing, and I love that."
Taffi is currently promoting her new single, Gi Mi Dat.
"This is a nice, fun dancehall song that has a kind of feel-good vibe which makes you want to get up and dance every time you hear it. Since we began promoting it, it has been generating a buzz in the streets. It is also getting radio play, both locally and overseas," said Taffi. The song, which was produced by Deezl House Production, was released on April 23.
Taffi, whose given name is Vaneca Gardner, is from Old Harbour, St Catherine. Some of her other releases are Self Pleasure, What A Feeling, and Dripping All Over.
