Hakill

BIOGRAPHY

Hakill was born on September 22, 1991, under the name Ibrahima Khalil N’Diaye. Hakill grew up in Dakar’s renowned Grand Yoff area, surrounded by music since he was a child. He raps in Wolof, English, or French, proud of his Soninke heritage.

The young prodigy, who was born in the Bakel area of northern Senegal, was attuned to music from an early age, and his love in hip hop was verified by listening to French rap at the time. Before beginning to rap in street battles, he mastered hip-hop dancing.

Prior to launching his solo career, he and a boyhood buddy created the band MIND MBED. They established a name for themselves in Yoffois by publishing three titles.

“My Tune,” Hakill’s debut solo track, was released in 2011. He was discovered in 2014 and signed to the Rep’Tyle Music label. In 2015, the youthful rapper placed third in the Galsen rap competition “Flow Up,” and in August, he published his debut mixtape, “Ich Yo Boy,” which was nominated for the Yaakar Festival’s “best discovery of the year” category, as well as the Galsen Hip Hop Awards’ “best mixtape of the year.”

He shocked his fans by releasing a new album, ‘’SVRVX,” a ten-track mixtape, in March 2016. Life took him out of the studio for a bit after this endeavour.
