Dublin based, hip-hop artist Jafaris received critical praise for his debut album STRIDE - nominated for RTE Choice Music Award - Album of The Year 2019, which also earned him his place as one of Ireland’s foremost players of the new generation of the Irish hip-hop.
Jafaris musical calling came a little later than most. Before the dazzling lyricism and poetic resonance, he brought to the emerging Irish music scene, dance had always been his passion and career path. It was through a dance audition that the multi-talented musician landed the role of Ngig in the 2016 Irish film sensation ‘Sing Street’ directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker John Carney.
Musically, his uncompromising fluency of expression means he is as exciting as he’s ever sounded. In 2017, Jafaris hooked up with Diffusion Lab, music production hub & artist management agency that’s seen a whole bunch of remarkable talent come through its doors. Since joining the team, the triple threat - rapper, actor and dancer has gone on to become a knockout performer. In 2017 he also signed deal with Primary Talent agency, sharing the live roster with Stormzy, J Hus, Wretch32 etc.. Jafaris has signed a publishing deal with BuddeMusic in 2019.
