It’s undeniable that Faridah Seriki (@thatkahlo) is largely unknown here in Africa at large, but her song ‘Rinse and Repeat’ which was released earlier this year has been recognized and nominated for the Grammy’s.
Kah-Lo was born in Nigeria. She had her secondary school education at the popular Vivian Fowler Memorial College for Girls, Ikeja, Lagos before she moved to Hofstra University, USA where she studied Journalism and graduated in 2013.
Like Wizkid, Kah-Lo got a joint nomination with British DJ, Henry Riton Smithson in the Best Dance Recording category. ‘Rinse & Repeat’ is said to have been inspired by Lagos Christmas celebrations. The song has also been streamed 5 million times on Spotify and played 1.5 million times on YouTube, less than a month after its release.
We wish Wizkidayo and Thatkahlo success at the 2017 Grammy Awards come February 12, 2017!
