Nazizi, also known as the First Lady of Kenyan hiphop, is one of the pioneer and Kenya’s most respected female Mcee. Her entry into the male dominated Kenyan hip-hop scene in the late 1990s was was no walk in the park. She started by participating and winning numerous free styling battles with other emerging male MCees in K1 and K2 club houses in Nairobi. She released her first hit single "Ni Sawa Tu" in 1999. This song, written in a conversational style between mother and daughter, she expresses her desire and aspirations to become an MCee. Since then, Nazizi has been droppin hits that have stuck with fans for many years. Her other favorite genres are Reggae and Dancehall. Her music is about everyday experiences mostly related to youth and women issues,for example, drug abuse, gun violence, safe sex, hustle etc. Her music, particulary reggae, reflects a big influence of the Rastafarian philosophy which she tries to preach through messages of equality, resistance to all kinds of oppression, love and unity among mankind.
Nazizi has collaborated with many aritists. She is/was part of the Necessary Noise group--(her and Wyre). Some the songs released under this group are "Kenyan Girl Kenyan Boy" and "Bless my Room." Recently, she collaborated with Jamaican based Reggae and Dancehall artist Ginjah to produce the album "MotherLand".
