Dublin based, hip-hop artist Jafaris received critical praise for his debut album STRIDE, which 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.
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. Since the release of his debut album ‘Stride’, Jafaris has seen huge support from Radio 1 (Annie Mac), Kiss, Spotify and press, including NME who described Jafaris as one of the most exciting new prospects from Irish rap’s rising wave.
