received by many with persons singing along to a few of his tracks including his latest hit ‘Do You Wanna’.
The ‘Do You Wanna’ single with Universal Japan signed artiste Chenelle, is performing remarkably well overseas, Shifta wants this visit to also re-energize the single here in Jamaica.

The music video for the single has also been picked up on International Video platforms MTV & Vh1 national networks and also hit 1 million views on YouTube since its upload in December 2014. SHIFTA’s visit to Jamaica will also give him the opportunity for recordings in the home base of Dancehall and Reggae Music, he will be completing projects for Dj Nicco , Fras Twins, Leftside & Tony Kelly.
He is also finishing a Collabo EP project with platinum selling artiste Chenelle which is set for its release in summer 2015. His solo EP that will also be released this year is also in its final phase.
CEO of Timeless Entertainment Mr Rasheed.Ali has been negotiating multiple offers from major labels and is in the process of organizing a Japan tour this summer along with confirming events in South America, Europe and Shifta’s US college tour which begins later this month.
Shifta is excited to be in Jamaica starting his tour season “Everything for me begins in Jamaica, the music is no different. So the touring of that music for me has to begin in Jamaica as well, it always begins at home and I’m excited to be back home” Shifta explained.
With his schedule already looking quite full for the remainder of 2015, Shifta is also happy to be home to reconnect with family and friends in Jamaica as he will certainly be kept busy recording and touring for the rest of the year.
