Nix

BIOGRAPHY

Nicolas Omar Diop, better known by his stage name Nix, is a Senegalese rapper and entrepreneur who was born on September 19, 1978, in Dakar.

In 1993, he debuted as a member of the band Kantiolis, which was his first foray into music. In 2003, he released “Black Crystal,” his debut solo album, which was favourably appreciated in French-speaking West Africa. Six months later, he released Black Crystal: Summer Edition, which won “Best Solo Album” at Senegal’s third Hip Hop Awards.

Nix’s fame is spreading beyond Senegal’s borders thanks to a series of performances arranged across French-speaking West Africa.

Nix founded his African Victory label in Dakar with his partner JAMC in 2015, after featuring huge stars like Wyclef Jean and travelling with amazing performances. He published a seven-track EP called “Excuse My Wolof” in 2016, which was warmly appreciated by the Senegalese people and abroad.

Nix’s ascent to popularity continues with the publication of his album “L’Art De Vivre” on September 30, 2016, followed by a performance at the Bellevilloise (Paris) in November of the same year. With his song “L’Art De Vivre,” he received the Galsen Hip Hop Awards’ “Best Lyricist” award in December 2017.

Nix’s “Virgo” EP was released on Deedo Records and Def Jam Africa on December 26, 2020. Coco Cissoko, Obree, Fyffey, and Flagrandelit’s productions all contributed to this project.
