Since shedding her rude girl image and her former stage name dancehall artist Ruffi-Ann has become known for her hitting social commentary. Over the last two years she has made her mark on the local music scene with songs such as Save The Juvenile and Nuh Wuk Nuh Deh. She is currently getting ready to unleash another thought provoking track which is titled Forty Eight Years.


Ruffi-Ann says the idea for the song was inspired by the tough conditions that most Jamaicans face on a day to basis.

“It’s been forty eight years since Jamaica has been an independent nation and from independence until now the people have been struggling and suffering under economical and political pressures. It’s like a never ending story some people can’t even find food to eat, poverty and crime have the people under bondage. Since we the artists are the voice of the people we have to say something about it. That’s why I decided to record Forty Eight Years,” said Ruffi-Ann.

Forty Eight Years is currently receiving good rotation on radio stations island-wide. It will be released officially before the end of July through leading internet music stores such as Itunes, Rhapsody and EMusic.

Ruffi-Ann is also currently busy promoting the first annual Ruffiganza. This event will take place at the Annex Plaza in Guys Hill in St. Cathrine on Saturday the 26th of June and will feature sound-systems such as Stone Love and Navaigator alongside popular selectors such as Foota Hype, Mad Ras, Lego Bling, Sata Vibes.
