Formerly offered on a retainer, the HardKnock Music Academy is an avenue that provides affordable workshops and resources to upcoming artists, active artists and talented individuals that need professional guidance.
The rapper who is also a lawyer began her musical career as a child in Ibadan before she began musical collaborations and was signed on to eLDee’s Trybe records. Sasha P was once hailed as the queen of Nigerian hip-hop for her tremendous success in Nigeria and internationally as a rapper. She maintained that position for a while and despite stiff competition in the industry especially amongst female rappers, she strived to remain relevant.
She is a recipient of several awards including the 2009 “Best Female Artist of the year” at the maiden edition of MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMA), making her the most decorated female rapper in the industry. Sasha was also nominated in dual categories (Best Female Video and Best Cinematography) by the SoundCity Video Music Awards for her second single “Only One” in 2009.
The hip-hop star created Nigerian high street fashion in December 2011 at L’Espace and in 2013, she announced she was going to take a break from the music scene to focus on own clothing label – Eclectic by Sasha.
Congratulations Sasha on this new adventure.
