Recording artiste and performer Flippa Mafia has decided to drop the 'Mafia' from his name.
The artiste will now be known as Flippa Moggela.
Born Andrew Davis, the artiste said he got his moniker while attending high school, but now is ready for a change and doesn't believe that it will affect his fan base. Flippa said the name change was imminent because he has evolved as an artiste and he's known across the dancehall idiom as the 'flossing king'. "I don't think that the change will make a big difference with my fan base because I have always been saying 'moggela' from I did the song Dem Ya. Moggela more fits with the image."
Flippa Moggela further added that so far the name has been met with positive reception, especially from the females. "Well the girls them like the name and so far people have been receptive to the change", the release read. Flippa's current single Talk Bout We on the Mad Panamera rhythm from Darkcide International has been getting a lot of attention especially on radio. The song is a joint production effort from Darkcide's Raymond 'Shadow' Small and radio jock ZJ Wah Wa.
The Mad Panamera rhythm is the third musical project from the Darkcide International label. Navino and RDX are among the other artistes featured on the project. As for Flippa, he is getting ready to release projects from his Flip Money Records imprint as well as projects from the Flip Money Squad stable of acts. The artiste has a busy schedule this weekend hosting Memorial Day parties and events across the United States. He is also billed for a show featuring Capleton in Philadelphia next month.
