First Female! Koffee wins GRAMMY Awards for Best Reggae Album 2020

Jamaican Reggae/Dancehall diva, Koffee has been crowned the winner of the BEST REGGAE ALBUM 2020 Category at the GRAMMY’s with her EP Rapture [Columbia Records].

Koffee created history by becoming the youngest (19, born February 16 2000) solo act to be nominated in the category Best Reggae Album, but it’s the first time ever a female artist takes the Grammy! Only four female artists got nominated before: Judy Mowatt (1985), Rita Marley (1991), Sister Carol (1996) and Etana (2018).

A lot of people asked how Koffee’s five track EP Rapture could get nominated in the album category. Here is the official info from the Grammys: “To be considered an album, recordings must contain at least five different tracks and a total playing time of 15 minutes or a total playing time of at least 30 minutes with no minimum track requirement.”

Also nominated in the BEST REGGAE ALBUM category were:
Julian Marley – As I Am [Ghetto Youth International]
Sly & Robbie & Roots Radics – The Final Battle [Serious Reggae]
Steel Pulse – Mass Manipulation [Rootfire Cooperative]
Third World – More Work To Be Done [Ghetto Youth International]
