Spotlight on Lila Ike

The Jamiacan-born singer-songwriter who is bringing Reggae's flame into the new school

Born Alecia Tameka Gre, Lila Iké was born in Christiana, Manchester, Jamaica.

Music was always her first love. 

And though she graduated from Manchester High School and enrolled at Northern Caribbean University in Mandeville, her musical career was always calling.

Her first album was released in 2020 entitled The ExPerience.

Some of her singles include: "Biggest Fan," (2017), "Gotti Gotti" (2017), "Second Chance" (2018), "Where I'm Coming From" (2019), "Sweet Inspiration" (2019) and "I Spy" (2020).
