The female rap industry has practically been extinct for a while now. As of today, there has been no active female rapper in Nigeria since 2015.
Mocheddah made it to that year but disappeared right after, and Sasha – hasn’t been active on the scene since 2007. Weird MC has also gone off the radar while Eva Alordiah’s relationship status, nowadays, outshines her rap career.
The likes of Muna, Pryse and other female rappers have been hanging onto the tether of survival for the past few years.
The situation has resulted in some industry watchers saying, in muffled sounds, that female rap is dead in Nigeria.
But just as the decibels of their voices were starting to increase, Bouqui surfaces, perhaps, as the last of a dying breed.
The femcee on Thursday announced on Instagram that her new body of work will be called ‘The Underground’.
Her caption read: “Back from the ashes like a PHOENIX with a sound from the “UNDERGROUND”. Anticipate nu single. Countdown begins.”
‘Underground,’ according to the rapvangelist, will be out on Saturday, July 15, and she says it will be “an anthem for a generation that is rising up from the underground”.
The song which was produced and mastered by Dapo Torimiro is said to be the first single off Bouqui’s fifth studio album.
