Essence Magazine called her “a young Kelly Rowland” and superstar artiste and producer Pharrell Williams gave her latest hit song What U Think About Me a thumbs up while overhearing it playing at the Essence Music Festival empowerment seminar.
These past few weeks have been a whirlwind for Nefatari. Not only did she perform in New York at the ‘Groovin In The Park’ headlined by the legendary Gladys Knight, but she made her debut on the stage of the largest event celebrating African-American culture and music in the United States, The Essence Music Festival.
This was a feat in many aspects, not only did she perform at the Essence Music Festival’s first ever ‘NEW & NEXT’ concert, but she is also the first artiste to bring Caribbean flavour with her blend of dancehall and pop music to the festival stage since its inception in 1995.
Nefatari, who proudly represents Jamaica and her reggae/dancehall influence, has often described her music as dancehall pop. That influence stems from her years as a background singer for Lindsay Lohan and Baby Spice of the Spice Girls group.
This was a first time for Nefatari in New Orleans. She performed at the Mercedez-Benz Superdome to a crowd filled with screaming fans and celebrities. Nefatari and her dancers shared the stage with young superstars like Diggy Simmons, Disney’s Cocoa Joans and Roshan Fegan and the OMG Girlz. Her single What U Think About Me received an overwhelming response from the crowd and her promotional CD’s which had songs such as What U Think About Me, Day U Mess Up and No Handbag were gone out of her hands within a flash to the eager concert goers who wanted more.
Not to leave out any of her fans who were not in attendance at the Essence Music Festival, Nefatari is giving away a free promotional download of What U Think About Me.
