Protoje thanks Koffee, tells her to “keep shining”

Grammy-nominated artiste Protoje

The resurgence of reggae music has come with an unintended but welcomed byproduct – a wave of artistes showing appreciation for their colleagues.

Continuing this vein of musical support, Grammy-nominated artiste Protoje extended his appreciation to Grammy winner Koffee on the weekend.

“After seeing how she approach her creativity, it was just like a breath of fresh air.”


Protoje, in a social media post Saturday, posted a picture of a smiling Koffee with the caption “thanks for all you’re doing for Jamaican Music and Culture. Keep shining” and tagged the Rapture singer.

The unprompted show of gratitude resonated with many of Protoje’s followers, who added their thanks in the comments. One said, “Jah Jah. Ar smile just brighten up mi day”.

Another commenter replied, “You are such an awesome human being. A helper, a doer, a mover, a shaker, a leader an example setter, a supporter – Yes I”, while a third said, “Facts. Young legend”.

Protoje and Koffee recently collaborated on a track, Switch It Up, for his recently released album In Search Of Lost Time. The reviews for the song have been overwhelmingly positive with many praising both artistes for their respective flow on the song.

Grammy Award winner Koffee has been praised by Protoje, and before Chronixx, for her musical contributions.

Another reggae star, Chronixx, also applauded Koffee’s achievements recently, saying the Lockdown singer has inspired his new style. “After seeing how she approach her creativity, it was just like a breath of fresh air. Whenever people used to tell me my music is such a breath of fresh air, it’s the first time I got to experience it from a artiste that was a few years younger than me…” Chronixx said in a Hot 97 interview in July.
