The rapper and singer brings an unmatched level of versatility to the game; as a multi-lingual artist, she pours her heart and pure love of passion for music into every inch of her craft.earGROUND
Code switching from English, Shona isiNdebele and Swahili, juggling all four over one beat, Sibo is a lyrical genius who spits truth to power.
Her gentle appearance can easily be deceiving for an unapologetic but extremely conscious lyricist that she is. At the height of the #ZimbabweLivesMatter she dropped a hard hitting short video clip that went viral and got many people asking who she was.
Sibo was one of the headliners at SHOKO Festival this year at the MASHUP Concert “Women Faya” and she brought her A-game, displaying great versatility as she waxed lyrical and went on to mash-it up together with sizzling star Anita Jaxson on the song Fire which originally features Poptain.
The way she flowed on a dancehall beat left festival viewers in awe.
She is also a blogger who hosts the #StoriesofRebirth – a Digital series that features Leading African Women and Macro Influencers across the African Creative Spec.
Sibo channels her multi-ethnic heritage and experiences gained on three continents into stimulating conversations about life. Refusing to view life in either “black or white”, expressing emotions felt by Africa’s now generation.
Keep your ear on the ground.
