Ventrice Morgan, March 25 1975 Montego Bay, Jamaica
As a result of winning a local talent contest in her hometown of Montego Bay, Jamaica, Queen Ifrica began her career in 1995. After experiencing this eye-opening experience, she ended up performing on some of the most prestigious stages in her country, including the esteemed Reggae Sumfest and forming a band with Tony Rebel’s Flames Crew in 1998.
She was raised in a Rastafarian faith and blossomed as one of the biggest cultural artists in reggae with hits such as “Randy”, “Jus My Brethren”, “Below the Waist” and “Daddy”, swarming the airwaves with hits such as “Randy”, “Jus My Brethren”, “Below the Waist” and “Daddy”, and stealing the stages of major festivals and stage shows around the world. This includes Summer Jam in Germany, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, Bob Marley Festival, Reggae Sundance in Holland, and Reggae on the River Festival in California. When it comes to being a community leader, Ifrica is involved in a number of outreach programs for children in Jamaica’s inner city. She also hosts charity shows where the proceeds are donated to a number of causes.
In July 2009, she signed a record deal with VP Records, which led to the release of her first album, Montego Bay, which was released in August 2009. A second album, Climb, was released in March 2017 and topped the Billboard Reggae Albums chart for the first time in its history
