Sutu: The First Lady

Sutu: The First Lady

Sutu may have been out of the music industry for a while but her impact on the music industry has been inspiring and also opened ways and doors for so many other female artists. Sutu became famous when she was signed to XYZ and she immediately got caught up in the drama that Slapdee and Mampi had at the time, but yet this did not stop her from showing us her talent in hit songs such as ” Universal charger Kamba Che” and Portable. EZM caught up with Sutu to find out more on what she has been doing and what we should expect from her but also her say on today’s Hip Hop

 I had gone on break from the music scene because of my personal life. I went through a rough patch and really my fame was not going to help me heal.

 

 

 

 “EZM” You were one of the first Female rappers if not the first how did this have an impact on you?

“SUTU” I would not say I was the first because before me were Queen Sheba and a few others. I am more of a singer than a rapper so it is impact on me was people expected me to be gangster and not soft. It is something I did to prove that I can.

“EZM” What really happened to you and your music?

“SUTU” I had gone on break from the music scene because of my personal life. I went through a rough patch and really my fame was not going to help me heal. Right now am back in the studio to record a full album and so far so good.

“EZM” How was it working with XYZ?

“SUTU” XYZ to me is family. You can never say you no longer belong to a family. We are still together just that recently I have focused mainly on my 2nd love which is acting, so I am the actress in XYZ.
“EZM” Since you came in the game; you have seen a lot of young rap females emerge, what’s your intake?

“SUTU” Some rap females that emerge are good others are terrible but I  would say big up for trying, I know it’s not easy.

Setting an example is hard but I did what I had to and I hope someone perfects it.

“EZM” All these young females talk about sex, money and men, was it like this for you then?

“SUTU” Sex, men, love and money, I have talked about them if that I s what sells why not? Of course that is not what life is about but we in this to make a living at the end of the day so what sells goes. I would not encourage bad language as we do our music because it’s our reputation at stake.

“EZM” Who is at the top of the Hip Hop game in the industry now?

“SUTU” In the hip hop game its hard to tell because this song will sound good and the other better. But of course I have a few names that come to mind e.g.  Slap Dee, J.O.B. Zone Fam, Pompi,e.t.c.

EZM” Where is the hip hop game headed to?

 “SUTU” We are definitely hitting the international market no doubt, as soon as the beef ends!

“EZM” You have set ways for other female artists to emerge, how do you feel about this?

 “SUTU” LOL setting an example is hard but I did what I had to and I hope someone perfects it.

“EZM” What is Sutu’s future in the music Industry?

 

“SUTU” Sutu is a multi-talented lady (blowing my own trumpet huh!) like I said earlier am in the studio working with different producers and different genres. But also doing my acting it’s hectic.

“EZM” Are there too many rappers and artists now and especially women?

“SUTU” There are not many of us but I hope to see where we can work together as women to lift each other. The guys are collaborating but I have not heard of a duet with just females on a track it is
