She lives in Antwerp, but her roots are Congolese. Her fun performance on stage is always so enjoyable on stage, so definitely Coely will raise the temperature on our Suikerrock stage on Saturday afternoon!
She always believed that she couldn’t rap until she was challenged to prove it to her gob smacked friends – it only took her version of Nicki Minaj’s ‘Moment for life’. She took piano and saxophone lessons, and she even tried a trombone… Always restless and looking for the right notes, she finally found them and was able what kind of true hip hop lady she really is.
Radio hits like ‘Ain’t chasing pavements’, ‘My tomorrow’ or ‘All I do’ got her the record companies’ attention that she rightfully deserves. An EP called ‘Raah the soulful yeah’ got her on several festivals and into clubs: Dour Festival, Les Ardentes, Ancienne Belgique, Eurosonic in Holland or the Berlin Festival. Support shows for her heroes Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg and Jessie Ware were next. Or that Kanye West afterparty in Amsterdam that everybody’s still talking about… Her simple answer to the question why everyone should see her on stage? “Seeing is believing, darling. I’ll try to give you the night of your life…”
Today her new album called 'Diffrent Waters' comes out with singles like 'Don't Care' and 'Wake Up Call'. She’s ready to take the next step. From now on, it’s only the future. At Suikerrock, on Saturday, July 29.
