MOST newcomers in the music industry complain about the lack of airplay and limited opportunities. Despite the odds, rising deejay Chikie Grainz is ready to spread her wings.

The St Thomas-based dancehall artiste is confident that her talent and work ethic will aid in her bid to become the next major female act locally.

“I'm ready to take my place in the spotlight. I have the talent, the image and the drive to make it. I'm going to be a star,” said Chikie Grainz, whose given name is Chikie Brown.

Having launched her career two years ago with the song Tek a Little Time (produced by Deano Dean Production), Chikie Grainz has slowly come into her own.

As she prepares to release Come After Come, Chikie Grainz is upbeat about the positive feedback to the song.

“My new single is hot [and]I'm getting a lot of positive feedback about it. Trust me, it's going to burn up the streets. I think this is the song that's going to give me that breakthrough in the music business,” she said.

Come After Come is produced by Lance Cockburn. It is to be officially released on February 1, 2018.

“This year is my year and I plan to go really hard. I'm working on a lot of new music for my fans,” she said.

Her other releases include Bad Gal and Fall in Love featuring J Deva.
