Koffe is scheduled for other appearances at the Hampton School for Girls and Newell High School in the month of November, with other schools to be confirmed.
The School Tour is an introduction to a developing scholarship programme that will be launched as a joint effort between Koffee Music LLC and the Mentoring and Training Leaders for Tomorrow programme, founded by Koffee’s manager, Tammi Chang.
