Queen Ifrica is a reggae singer who hails from Montego Bay, Jamaica.
She was born Ventrice Morgan on March 25th 1975 to ska legend Derrick Morgan, so music was always in her blood. Her career began in 1995 when she entered and won a local talent competition at Club Inferno in Montego Bay. This success gave her the motivation to focus on a serious career and so she began to perform more often at small scale events. It was at one such event in 1998, honouring the late Garnett Silk, that Tony Rebel heard her soothing vocals and immediately asked her to join his Flames Production camp. This proved to be a baptism of fire as shortly after joining the group, they went on to perform in the internationally known Reggae Sumfest that same year in her hometown. She managed to captivate the audience and finished her performance with a rousing applause.
Since this she has gone on to work as a solo artist after having built a reputation for herself. The Queen has produced such singles such as "Randy" and "Boxers and Stockings" which are a mainstay on local airwaves. Her music shows strong ties to her Rastafarian beliefs as most of her lyrics are laced with these principles. She has also amassed a large following due to the raw nature of her lyrics as she is not afraid to put her own struggles on display as is evident by songs such as "Daddy" and "Below the Waist".
In 2001 Queen Ifrica gained international fame as she teamed with Tony Rebel to produce a song for The United Nations' Celebration of the year of Volunteers. The song was heard all over the world by millions of people.
Queen Ifrica is currently signed with VP records and she continues to work on new material while still acting as a community leader for several outreach programs in rural Jamaica.
