Musician Mikayla "Koffee" Simpson may be small in stature and disarmingly unassuming but her modesty – and height – belies huge amounts of talent. The 5'0, self-described "sing-jay-guitarist" is one of the most exciting, forward-thinking, globally focused teenage talents to emerge in 2018. Born in Spanish Town, just outside of Kingston, Jamaica, Koffee was bought up alone by her hard-working mother. Describing herself as sitting somewhere between a singer, a rapper (known as a DJ in Jamaica) and a guitarist, Koffee's current output has tended towards the more traditional Jamaican rhythms.
