Known as Montreal’s hardest working Reggae artist, “IJah Iba” is back again with a new track titled “Glad to be rich”.
The song features rising star “Jr. Pincher”, son of veteran Reggae star “Pincher” (known for hits “Bandelero” and “I’m a Don”.) “This collaboration has been a long time coming, we have been looking to work with each other for about two years now! The opportunity came when he made the trip to come to Montreal and we put a song together at the same time.” said IJah.
With reggae topping pop charts worldwide, Ijah Iba aims to reach his next step of success for 2017. “Glad to be rich” falls in line with current music trends and both artists hope to reach the charts with talks of a music video to be released as well.
Ijah continues to work in studio on his debut album “The Signature” while he prepares to release his next mixtape project titled “Tuff Ras”. Both are set to release this year.
About IJah Iba Before immigrating to Canada in the early 2000’s, IJah was raised in Westmoreland in Jamaica’s countryside. The young “Tati” (his former nickname) was pursuing his career as a professional footballer when he was scouted to try out for the 1998 World Cup.
His father, being a Rastaman, always encouraged IJah to keep in touch with his music, commenting how it helps to keep in touch with your inner self.
Shortly after moving to Canada and immersing himself in his new surroundings in Montreal, IJah found himself drawn to the music culminating with him signing with the record label “DPC Movements” in August of 2008.
