DOVEY Magnum is continuously breaking new ground. She recently became the first female artiste to perform at Eleuthera, Driftwood Beach in The Bahamas. The singjay is also the first dancehall artiste to grace the stage on Moores Island (off Abaco Island, Bahamas).

“I am performing at places that no dancehall artiste has performed before and I feel elated. My songs Bawl Out, Prayer Mi Use, Win, Mademoiselle, and Good are well received. What more can I ask for?” said Dovey Magnum.

She is set to perform at New Rules in New York on September 8. Alkaline is also billed for the gig.

“My main focus now is to promote and market my new singles. As I continue to tour I realise that patrons are now singing my new songs word for word so that in itself is a success story for me,” she said.

Born in Spanish Town, St Catherine, Dovey Magnum (given name Simsky Kimberly Hamilton) grew up in St Ann. She attended Ocho Rios Primary and then the high school in the parish.

She migrated to the United States in 2002 and made her first recording in 2012. She hasn't looked back since.
