General Tchefary is a descendant of the great opponent of the struggle against French colonialism in Africa “l’Almamy Samory Toure “.  Growing up with his mother, he never saw his father.  Becoming a musician kept him away from the bandits and out of trouble.

Ibrahim Toure 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 African Reggae people.

“Il Est Temps” is the title of the second album from 2013.  This CD became International, open to the world.  It talks about denunciation, revolution, and education.  This album has become an explosion factor for our General Tchefary.

In 2015 he was invited by K-Bass Music to America to promote African Root Reggae.  General Tchefary is multi-dimensional in his art, he sings with K-Bass Music, Solidarite Sympa, Dub Society and other bands.

He has performed at festivals with famous singers, Ky-Mani Marley, Morgan Heritage, Alpha Blondy, Third World, I Threes, Tiken Jah Fakoly, Takana Zion and many more.
