Marcy Chin receives support from Koffee and Spice after Sumfest performance
Marcy Chin has earned two huge fans after her stellar performance at Sumfest, Koffee and Spice.
The Downsound Records artist shared that after her performance at Reggae Sumfest over the weekend, she caught the eye of two of the biggest talents in the industry by co-signing her talent. Marcy Chin, dressed by designer Neko Kelly and Sher Luxury Doll, delivered a smashing performance at Friday night’s event. Chin is an up-and-coming talent who received a lot of attention for his recently released video “Wul Night” with Skillibeng, but his career has been slow to get the kind of attention it needs to secure him a place in the mainstream. dancehall.
It looks like his well-executed performance at Sumfest caught the eye of two of music’s best, which could hopefully lead to collaborations in the future.
On his Instagram account, Chin revealed that Spice reached out to his Instagram account to praise his performance. A screenshot of the chat showed Spice in the DMs telling Marcy Chin, “Great Job.”
Chin shared the screenshot with a long post on Instagram.
“Usually when people show me love and give me strength, I keep it to myself and reflect on it as a personal accomplishment. But this time I’m encouraged to share. The Queen of Dancehall herself, two hours after my performance, DMed me to let me know I did a great job,” she wrote on Instagram.
Chin added that she was honored that Spice took the time to recognize her on such a big night for her career.
“Like I said, you had to be there. It was her official coronation night, her special night so she didn’t have to take the time to say a word to my little one! So when I tell you it means the WORLD to me, please believe me. A lot of things didn’t go to plan with my performance and there was a bit of disorganization in regards to how long I worked, but I still rose to the occasion and did my thing without fear. To be validated by someone who is at the helm of the performance, on the special evening of his coronation… none a unu cyaaaaaa bring mi dung! Lmfaooo. Who drove you crazy?!!!!! BUZZZZZZ!!!!” Chin wrote.
While Spice hasn’t been too public about it, she’s been a welcoming face and voice for many new artists, including Jada Kingdom and, to some extent, Shenseea when she first joined the company.
Meanwhile, Chin also shared a video of her and Koffee meeting for the first time as they held hands and talked through a fence. The encounter went viral as the Grammy winner seemed genuinely happy to meet Chin.
“The highlight of my whole weekend. When @originalkoffee spotted me in the crowd this morning and called me to say she loved my performance and went home and streamed my music on YouTube and #StreetFighter is her favourite,” Chin wrote of the encounter.
Chin released her first mixtape in 2013, but over the years she has constantly rebranded herself as an artist as she worked to find her own unique form and sound in dancehall.
With the right mix of old-school sounds and her creative approach, which includes rapping in her music and being the first to do so long before Shenseea and others, she has a growing fan base that sees her as “under estimated”.
His first Reggae Sumfest as one of the youngest and newest faces in dancehall is already paying off.
