Celebrating Beautiful Afro Rap Artist,Jasmine Remi-Ilori (MzJ4zzie)

Tell me about you...introduce yourself...

My name is Jasmine Remi - Ilori also known as Mz J4zzie. I was born in London, United Kingdom with a Nigerian heritage. I am a lawyer turned afro rapper. I began my music career after I graduated with an LLB (Hons) degree. I also have a charity foundation called Mzj4zzie Foundation which caters to empowering the youth in Nigeria and I’m also the author of Tricks of a Player. 

Tell me about your musical career....

I created my own lane in the afrobeat game as an Afro rap artist to which I use my smooth rap flow, cockney accent with a mix of Nigerian slang and unique voice to grace afro beats.

In a short time I’ve  been able to build a steady fan base in Nigeria through social media with over 40k Instagram followers and accumulated over 170k views on Youtube on my own channel and over 250k views in total on all music videos both on my channel and on music platforms. 

Throughout my career, I have performed in over 20 shows in cities including Liverpool, Cardiff, London, Manchester and Nigeria, been recognised on known newspaper outlets both in the United Kingdom and Nigeria, been awarded with an award of excellence for rap and has supported major acts including Ms Banks, Not3s, Tiwa Savage and Naira Marley.

I have also signed brand ambassador deals

with Afria drinks and Pojita cocktails. Afria is a drink brand based In the Uk bringing a new taste of chapman to Nigeria. Afrias drink is a new African inspired alcohol free canned mocktail with a refreshing blend of tropical fruits and bitters. Whilst Pojita Cocktails is a cocktail brand based in Nigeria which specialises In providing cocktails and mocktails at events. 

Tell me about the life of a female rapper...

It’s not easy being a female rapper as it is a male dominated industry and you really have to be able to manoeuvre through the obstacles of being a female in this industry. Female rappers are also limited In the industry which means you have to work twice as hard to be recognised. 

Are you based here in Nigeria?If not where?

I am based in the United Kingdom but I am currently in Nigeria for the first time to build my fanbase In Nigeria and to work on dominating the Naija rap scene.
