Have you been looking for a female Emcee from west Africa that will blow you away with her lyrics and delivery? Look no further, she is right here!

Phlow is a Nigeria based emcee who started penning rhymes as an outlet of expression.
Born as Stephanie Asuai Eyime, African female lyricist and songwriter, Phlow is carving her own niche in a male-dominated hip hop music genre. She has been a mainstay in most cyphers especially that of Hennessy, holding her own against the male competition. Presently, she has 5 EPs to her credit, “Mind, Body & Phlow” “Asuai: A Mini EP”, Asuai Vol.2 and Gloria EP, a handful of singles “Phlowetic Justice”, “Love It or Not” and “Str8up” was featured on top music sites such as TheSource.com, HipHopDX, 2Dopeboyz, Egotripland, Elle magazine(France) amongst others.

Her most recent body of work MARMALADE is sleek with an urban feel. Each song on this 6-track EP, true to the most succinct and literal definition of the word “marmalade”, is an alternative jam; individually implanted by Phlowʼs creative genius – promising to indeed germinate and sprout novelty in the African hip-hop space. The disruptive project, produced and engineered entirely by Alpha Ojini, seduces the listener into syncing with the different rhythmic patterns used to paint lyrical pictures in ways that are rarely well-executed, especially in the world of Nigerian hip-hop. The project flaunts the combination of lyricism and melody almost perfectly, effectively wearing its definitive cloak of being a collection of “alternative jams” – proof of Phlowʼs growth and evolution, as well her ingenuity and deftness in churning out equally evolved art. “MARMALADE” features some of the best-known talents in Nigerian music today. With a combination of brilliant song ideas as well as dustings of humor in the skits, the result is a truly cohesive African hip-hop project – bound to appeal to fans and critics alike.

XtaticKenyan female Emcee Xtatic is considered in many quarters as one of the best rappers Male or female on the continent.  She is up there with the greats and her impact is getting huge. Her most recent body of work dropped in Aril 2020 and after many attempts, we have finally got her to approve us posting it on the site.

The 9 track project dubbed social Xperiment offers you an opportunity to see the world through her lens. She serves you her perspectives and opinions on world issues like Love, Life, loyalty and opens the doors for you to see her struggles, in a no holds barred fashion.  This is sure one of the few blessings the world has received during the COVID-19 era.

If she is not the greatest, she is closest to it.

 

S/o to Xtatic for also insisting that this record should be offered to people to streaming and download for free. According to her, music is not a career but a passion and she does not want money to be a reason people cannot access her materials — What a beautiful soul.

 

Illgod is yet again involved in another masterpiece. His beats seem to bring out the best in rappers. This time he collaborates with the highly intelligent xplain D Don who first wowed us with his King Jaja Bars some months ago. Xplain as his name implies is able to speak on a vast variety of topics, tell stories, and kick mad knowledge that educates, as well as entertains the listener at the same time.

On so many occasions during the album, he draws inspiration from his Port-Harcourt environs mentioning the names of past heroes and reminding us of the lifestyle and culture of the Opobo people – an ethnic tribe in Nigeria in which he belongs to.

Illgod draws inspiration from The Divine Comedy and La Vita Nuova both by Dante Alighieri. According to the artists, the artwork by Aubrey Vincent Beardsley was just too beautiful to overlook.

We are super impressed by this body of work.
