From an early age Ikaya has been singing. The past student of Wolmer?s
Girls has always been involved in the performing arts and now has
decided to take it to the next level by bringing her talent to the musical stage.
Born in Kingston 11 she blazed on to the scene in 2001 on Capleton?s Fire on the Martial Arts Riddim produced by Kings of Kings maestro Skatta Burrell. On the track the young Ikaya belts out an excellent hook providing a good combination to the ?Fireman? when he was at his prime.
Fast forward to 2009,
the Balcolm Drive native has pledged to bring quality music to her fans
while at the same time honing and perfecting her talent.
Not only is she a singer but she is also a prolific Deejay who has proven that she can stand up to the big boys and girls; her recent hit Good Up is an example of this. This was also proven by her appearance on Merciless? hit Amber Alert.
On the track the artiste was sensational, blending her smooth flavour with the gritty tone of Merciless.
The singer and Deejay who graduated from The Edna Manley College of Visual and Performing Arts in 2007 is gaining popularity on the local scene but she also has a burgeoning fan base in North America and the Caribbean where she has opened for Capleton in Grenada and Trinidad.
She has also recently appeared on Capleton's 'St Mary Mi Come From' and ?Champions in Action? where she performed very well and got a good response from the crowd.
Now signed to Outaroad Records and back working with Skatta Burrell; who is credited with launching the careers of top dancehall artistes such as CeCile and Idonia, Ikaya is well placed to be the next big thing. The artiste has been busy in the studio and has a slew of new material waiting to be released.
Her recent release of Good Up on the Bad Intentions Riddim has been making waves and she recently shot the video for the single under the direction of Rick Elgood who directed the movie Dancehall Queen.
The video has been released on National and Cable television. She has collaborated with Beenie Man on the single Body good on the Unstoppable Riddim and has also released the song Rewind on the Skatta?s Hindu Riddim.
With this body of work already completed much more is expected from Ikaya.
