Winning Best Newcomer of the Year at the Senegalese Hip-Hop Awards in 2005 came after years of commitment to creating her own sound, which fuses hip hop with Senegalese rhythms and instruments. As one of the few women hip hop artists in Senegal she has fought hard to finally get her voice heard. She also uses her music as a way to talk about society, particularly the problems facing Senegalese women such as forced marriage, female genital mutilation and AIDS.
