Nazizi is a Kenyan hip hop/reggae/dancehall artist who commands a great following in the whole of East Africa. Popularly known as ‘The First Lady’, she released her first single ‘Ni sawa tu’ when she was 16 years old. The song was an instant hit in both local and regional markets. She viewed her unique status as the first and, at the time, only female hip hop artist in Kenya as an opportunity to improve and develop as a musician. In the years since, her versatility has seen her emerge as one of the few artists in Kenya that seem to effortlessly slip between different music genres.
