GENERALTCHEFARY is a descendant of the great opponent of the struggle against French colonialisminAfrica “l’Almamy Samory Touré”. Growing up with his mother, he never saw his father.

Becoming a muscian kept him away from the bandits and out of trouble.

Ibrahim Touré, alias General Tchefary, met his music in West Africa, Ivory Coast in the year 1998. As an artist, he started in the hip-hop movement then gradually deflected in the life of Reggae music. He chose Reggae music for what it stands for. Reggae music is his life; it gives him the joy of living. It gives him hope to see a better world where people live in harmony without injustice. Because of this way of life, he and Reggae music have become one, as if they were born together.


He released his first Album in 2008, “Soya ” which gives it a marked evolution over Ivorian showbiz and ranking it among the hopes of Africa Reggae people.
