Nailah Blackman

Nailah Blackman is taking Trinidad & Tobago, the Caribbean and the World by storm. Nailah is born in music, music is part of her DNA.
Daughter of well- known Trinidadian Calypso Artist Abbi Blackman, and Granddaughter of the late Ras Shorty I, the founder of Sokah Music and the related genre Chutney Sokah.
With this ancestry in Sokah royalty, Nailah has been immersed in music her entire life and is an accomplished musician not only classically trained in voice but also in various instruments including the guitar and keyboards. Nailah is also a prolific songwriter and composer and continues to write and compose her own songs.
2017 has been her break out year with 3 mega hits back to back including “Work Out” featuring Kes the Band, with over eight million views on YouTube.
“Baila Mami” may be her biggest hit to date with over 6 million views as it features Nailah on her own and shows her playful versatility.
“Badissh” featuring Jamaican rising star Shenseea was another runaway hit with over 3.3 million views and again showcases another side of Nailah.
She closed off 2017 on a high note celebrating her 20th birthday on December 2nd, launching her first EP “Sokah” and her live band by the same name. The concert was a huge success and brought together some of the most talented upcoming Trinidad artists.
The title track of the EP “Sokah” is a trendy tribute to the Trinidad and Tobagonian culture and to the love she has for her country. The video features Len Boogsie Sharpe on steelpan and Mungal Patasar on sitar.
The video is already at 1.4 million views.
As she continues to release songs from the EP, her fans the #naiarmy as they call themselves are impatiently waiting to see what the new Queen of Sokah has to offer.

If 2017 was her break out year, 2018 will be the year Nailah Blackman stamps her name as a force to be reckoned with in the music industry. Bookings are already currently flowing in from North America to Europe and all over the Caribbean.
Rich musical talent, fresh, playful yet strong willed, mature and hard working, Nailah is destined for certain stardom.
