May Pen City Records artiste Tyrifik, formerly known as Terro Slim, believes that his name change and new sound can help to elevate him to the top tier of the dancehall.

“I had to change my original dancehall name because too much 'Terro' already inna the business and it just wasn't working for me, so mi do a rebranding exercise, wheel and come again, and everybody say the new name fresh and the new look and the sound,” he said.

Over the past few months, the quick-witted singjay has emerged as one of dancehall's fiercest and talented young artistes because of his unique voice and new-age flow. He has quickly carved out a decent reputation for his silky, smooth flow and his standout lyrical mastery.

In dancehall circles, especially in Clarendon, he has earned a reputation for singles including Word Sound a Power and Dancehall Spenders.

He grew up in e Porus, Manchester, in challenging circumstances, and during his teenage years, he attended Vere Technical High in Clarendon, but his principal focus was always music.

“There was a lot of hungry days growing up, but music was my best friend, my constant companion, on the days when I had to make a long journey to shop for my parents or whenever I was bored,” said Tyrifik, whose given name is Terrio Archer.

The singjay's latest single, Duh Road, is a fixture on several mixtapes.

Tyrifik is being managed by his brother, Marvin Henry, and together they have been producing a number of independent singles.

“We are currently shooting scenes for the Duh Road' video. The future is looking very promising. we love the response so far and we're going all out this summer,” he said.

The song will be officially distributed by Zojak World Wide and will be available on all online platforms later this month.
