With roots firmly secured in the Rastafarian faith, she blossomed as one of the top cultural artists in reggae swarming the airwaves with hits like "Randy", "Jus my Brethren", "Below the Waist" and "Daddy" and stealing the stages at major festivals and stage shows around the world (Summer Jam in Germany, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, Bob Marley Festival, Reggae on the River in California and Reggae Sundance Festival in Holland). As an active community leader, Ifrica is involved in several outreach programs for children in Jamaica's inner-city and charity shows where proceeds are donated to the cause.
She also recently signed a record deal with VP Records and her first album Montego Bay wasreleased in July 2009.
Tony has taken the 'singjay' technique to impeccable levels. He remains a beacon, a solid rock upon which the opressed can depend for love and support. Every time he speaks, those who are so often ignored are heard; the mothers, children and youth man who struggle just to make it by each and every day. Yet his message is not for no one group nor class, but for all to revel. Nothing other than positivity, and livity emanate from his soul which warms those it touches. His popularity and respect among both the deejay fraternity and dancehall massive more than attest to this.
In 1993, Tony Rebel's popularity in yard led to a contract with Columbia. Unfortunately, 'sign of the times' did not perform well in the profit oriented US market. As always, it featured Rebel spreading nothing but conscious vibes, but it seems that the US just wasn't ready for a 'cultural revolution'. Tony Rebel's name was more apt five years ago; he was indeed a rebel, rallying against the slackness and guntalk which permeated the arena. Now, however, due much in part to his voice, not to mention that of the great Garnett Silk, a number of prominent artists such as Capleton, Buju Banton, and Terry Ganzie among others have found Selassie I. One can only hope that Rebel's continued presence allows this trend to expand...
