This is the authentic DVD people straight from Khama camcorder to your living room. Feel the footage of the rise to stardom. Check out what was said about just one of the performances that are on the DVD. Halfway through Khama's performance, and the performance of the song "Like I Do It," I realized that despite sitting at the entrance of the North Miami Beach City Hall, I was among the same, give or take a few rows, fans that got to see the beginning of a star. Now the same people are dancing together to the only rap song that's not about selling drugs, sex or violence. So I ask, what is this sincere attraction to Khama? I don't care what your ticket stub says for the Step and Drumline Battle at the North Miami Beach City Hall in North Miami Beach, it was Khama who stole the spotlight that night. But I guess I'm getting a little ahead of myself, so check it: To begin with, when Khama hit the stage, she was phenomenal. She would best be described as the love child of hip hop, but with her own distinctive sound. Despite a few good battles between a few good bands and a handful of good step routines, Khama single-handedly turned my night around. In case you didn't know how cute Khama is, she's absolutely adorable. From the minute she opened her mouth to talk, I squinted one eye and feverishly tried to pick her up between my thumb and forefinger to put her in my pocket and take her home, but I just couldn't. Try as you might, you just can't outsmart physics. Regardless, Khama's poetic outbursts were awesome, with just the right chemistry to pique your interest and keep you singing along even if you were fumbling over the words. The crowd responded throughout the performance with encouraging cries of "we in here" and "like a star" as she asked "where you at Miami?" and "how you feel?" As the light changed colors and moved along the stage, the restless crowd grew quiet and appreciative as Khama's verse of Starr rose through the smoke and ash and stole the hearts of all the onlookers. I was not at her first performance in February of last year, but judging by her performance tonight I can see why she was asked back for an encore. If you ask me hip hop never sounded so good. Khama is her stage name and her style has the "Khama" touch. This versatile West Indian flavors her music with a little Caribbean flavor as well as a strong New York type realness and a hard-core delivery style. She captures in the music the reality of the times, and merges this with a little of the past and raps into the future at times. The self-effacing, self-proclaimed "STARR OF THA SOUTH" has graduated into the breath of fresh air the game's lacking. Khama writes her own lyrics and entertains the idea of writing lyrics for other artists as well. Khama has been on The Rap Game on 99 Jamz with Big Lip Bandit and Super Cindy. She has entered numerous talent shows, including the ones at Miami- Dade College, Brevard Community College, Mike Sherman Talent Search competition and the new Teen Club, The Warehouse - hosted by Larry Dogg and Big Lip Bandit.

Khama learned to play the keyboard and the Saxophone in High School and was also a part of her High School Band. In a Talent Search held by the chorus department of her High School Khama met and performed for Baby face's producer who liked her and invited her to work with him at his studio. She's got her mother's velvet voice and showed her musical interest as young as 8 by mouthing the tunes of Bob Marley, keeping up on the latest dancehall trends and entering poetry and essay contests, one being the "Share The Dream Black History Month Essay Contest hosted by Mr. Jerry Graves general manager of Coca-Cola Enterprises, Harvey E. Cohen general manager of 39 WDZL-TV, and Charles S. Goldmark general manager of WHQT-FM HOT 105 of which she was a finalist, but most of all she has been in the studio recording and working the radio stations with different DJs to promote her talent as a hip-hop/rap artist.
