DUBROOM VIDEO REVIEW
WWW, May 2008 - Although Queen Ifrica is the daughter of Ska legend Derrick Morgan, she didn't dedicate this track to him. She wrote it after hearing about the abuse one of her friends had to go through.
Bizarre aspect: there were several demands to have the track banned from Jamaican Radio when the track took the waves by storm during the last part of 2007. In a musical landscape where slackness (that is: more or less pornographic lyrics) is accepted, a call against one of the most evil things one human can do to another is apparently disturbing...
Queen Ifrica is actually one of the few female Reggae singers who keeps the conscious fire burning. A thing which is definitely not so easy. An article by the Canadian Toronto Star recorded her as saying (about conscious Reggae):
- "From a young teenager I saw that this side of the music was dying. Judy Mowatt, Chevelle and a lot of the other sisters were just going into the church (and singing gospel). I'm not knocking them for that; it's just the pressure of what the industry gives. If you're not willing to hold on, then you might find yourself going to other places."
