Dafina
Dafina is more than your typical Indie Artist from Malmo Sweden with her smooth, electrifying, but bold vocals. At times listening to her voice can be hypnotizing.
Although she began singing at the age of 10, where she performed her own
songs at a children’s festival in Sweden, she gained her talent naturally from her mother a former singer, Melihate Zeqiri.

It was Dafina’s transition from Sweden to Kosovo that catapulted her career to the next level. At the age of 17, she made her career a priority and gained popularity in Kosovo after winning multiple awards at Polifest. Her name became holistically known and earned a spot on the X-Factor Albania in 2012.

Dafina grew up having numerous influential artists in the US, which helped encourage the artistry in her, for example Aaliyah and Lauren Hill. She was afforded the opportunity to travel back and forth between the US, but while in New York, Hurricane Sandy of 2012 had other plans for her. With Dafina’s travels coming to a halt, it gave her the opportunity to do music that she really wanted to do, modern yet sultry hip hop and R&B working with hit-making record producer Rick Steel. She has been featured in the awesome single on the late Chinx album and on French Montana’s most recent release, “Jungle Rules,” naming Famous as one of Jay Z’s favorite songs.

Dafina has transformed herself shifting to the United States with her FIRST SINGLE along with her video release called, “Four Seasons,” premiered by Fader with one million views in the 1st week on YouTube in mid 2017.
