Aunty Rayzor

Eine absolut unerschrockene Kosmopolitin

About

Rayzor slices through beats faster than a japanese knife, Aunty commands the respect of a veteran rapper, Bisola Olugbenga aka Aunty Rayzor has been in the music game since an early age, sharpening her incredible vocal skills in church as a child, and her deadly rap flow at hiphop battles across Nigeria, now the young artist is set to take over the world.

Known in the Nigerian underground as the Naija Thugress, she combines the power flow of Missy Elliott with the grace and boldness of Erykha Badu, so versatile she is as good on a hard hiphop beat as she is on an afrohouse or afrobeat, performing in both English and her native Yoruba.

Aunty Rayzor recently gained national attention for her performance at a prestigious freestyle battle, then dropping "kuku corona" which became Nigeria's pandemic anthem. She's performed to stadium crowds and at some of the most important festivals in Nigeria including a sold out show at the Shrine during Felabration.

In 2021 she joined Kampala's Nyege Nyege crew working with several producers on her upcoming debut album. Rayzor is also a young mother, and finds her drive and inspiration in providing for her family and making her mother and daughter proud through everything she does.

Programmtext

Sie hat sich nicht umsonst den Namen Messer gegeben: Ihre Stimme schneidet durch die härtesten Beats wie durch Butter. Aunty Rayzor kommt aus Nigeria, eigentlich heißt sie Bisola Olugbenga, und binnen kürzester Zeit hat sie es aus dem nigerianischen Underground auf die großen Festivals in Afrika und Europa geschafft. Sie rappt auf Englisch und auf Yoruba, sie wechselt geschmeidig zwischen den Sprachen und den musikalischen Stilen, sie spuckt ihre splittrigen Silben über klassische westafrikanische Beats, aber auch über stolpernde Post-R’n’B-Produktionen und japanischen Hornbrillen-Spinner-Industrial: Aunty Rayzor ist eine absolut unerschrockene Kosmopolitin.
