The Dublin based singer/songwriter has just released “Big Star,” and shows how to draw attention with infectious hooks and melodies. The twenty-something artist has already begun to impact audiences of all ages with her classic afrobeat reggae flow.
This song is perfect for the groups who curate playlists to drink poolside to, roadtrip, or even just played in a laid back function type of environment. “Big Star” is easy to listen to given that Itse flows with a cadence reminiscent of afrobeat super star “Burna Boy”.
Itse, born Itseorishe Eyesan, is not so new on the scene, as she has been working underground as a songwriter with a couple of big acts in afrobeat like Mr Peak, A1alvin, Zeus Baby to mention a few.

“Jagajaga” a phrase which she mentioned quite a number of times in the songs reflects how she intends to take her place in the industry in her words “If they don’t create space for me. I would rugged my way and make space for myself”.
