South London’s hottest rapper is a 25 year old Funmi Ohio, a brazen, edgy and intense girl with the coolest hair. Taking the UK rap scene by a storm, the girl’s got everyone’s head spinning because no one can decipher her sound. Is she a grime artist? Is she a rapper? What’s that techno we hear?
Unusual beats, hypnotic lyrics and a super fierce vocals, Flohio’s beats are frantic and energetic, leaving even the toughest MCs shaking in their boots. In 2016, her crackling beats told stories of self-discovery and the turmoil she’s been through; an ice cold journey which is now taking a turn towards hope, expectations and the power of family.
Honest, bold and proud, Flohio’s take on rap is different. She doesn’t rap about cars and guns because she doesn’t own any, and belonging to a South London community, she decides to stick to the truth and rap about that she’s living through. Having moved from Nigeria a decade ago, her inclination towards music was evident through the music videos of the 00’s era, especially Channel U and her favorite Lil Wayne.
With hopes of using her music to go around the world, and use it as a means of further self-discovery and reflection, the rapper is a great promoter of peace and love and family values.
