Born in London, Highbury, Fattima Mahdi describes herself as a “conscious rapper”, expressing herself via spoken word as a songwriter. The model’s pen never stops, citing inspiration fuelled by powerful social commentary. Fresh off a European tour, with a Freestyle Cypher award under her belt, she is quickly gaining recognition for her art form, catching the attention of Rhymesayers Entertainment – home to heavyweights like Freeway, Sa-Roc and MF DOOM. She currently lives in Malta but makes regular trips to London, performing, recording and collaborating.
With a jet setter lifestyle, half Nigerian, half Somalian Fattima Mahdi proudly pays homage to her roots in her latest single “Mama” – a heartfelt ode to Africa. A taste of what to expect from her forthcoming project “HOME”, largely produced by Gilkicker Studios and featuring a number of upcoming musicians, such as the talented London-based singer FaceSoul, Nigeria’s Rasta Bama, and guest producers Shay Who (Nigeria) and Gumz (South Africa).
