With smash hit Belleh remix featuring Sanjay, Demarco and Shelly Belly, receiving heavy rotation on the FM airwaves, veteran dancehall diva Tifa again has something to smile about following the announcement of the 2016 nominations for the Irie Jam Radio Online Awards.
The “Spell It Out” diva has landed a double nomination for Collaboration Song of the Year and Video of the Year for Jealous Ova, which was done with 2015 breakout star Dexta Daps. If that wasn’t enough, she is also featured on US Hip Hop star Ricky Blaze’s newly released album Conquer The Moment with the fiery club banger Look Like Me.
Alluding to the nominations, Tifa said: “It’s always a good feeling when your work is acknowledged. Ricky Blaze is a talented artiste, producer, and musician, and Chelley is an amazing artiste, so collabs like these are always a win. Conquer The Moment is an awesome project overall with awesome features from Shaggy, Dean Fraser, among others.”
According to Dre1 sources, Tifa, birth name Latifa Brown, recently renewed her endorsement deal with telecommunication giants Digicel for the sixth year, which sees her acting in the capacity of brand ambassador throughout Jamaica and the wider diaspora.
Adding to her already impressive stack of accolades, Tifa will also vie for top honours at the February 20 staging of the Youth View Awards at the National Indoor Sports Centre. She is up for Favourite Local Female Artiste Of The Year, Fashion Icon Female, Young Hot Hype Female of the Year, and Favourite Music Collaboration Hit Song for 2015.
Tifa also released a very controversial mixtape entitled “Stay Away” which turned a few heads in the latter part of 2015.
