Star Zee is a multi-award winning Sierra Leonean Hip-Hop and Dancehall queen. Linda Samai was born to Mr Patrick Samai (a former military dance band vocalist) and Mrs Sombo Samai (medical nurse).
Raised in Freetown, ”QueenKong” alias Star Zee has lyrically demonstrated why she is Sierra Leone’s biggest Dancehall crooner; a lyrically lethal female singjay who can rival her male counterparts boot-to-boot on the riddim.
She was initially introduced to the music industry at the age of 14 when she joined Stress Inc Records.
Star Zee began her career as a member of Ladies Day Out, a female-only band (L.D.O) and went solo in 2003, never looking back. “Focus On Africa” was published by the group (L.D.O) in December 1998. Star Zee’s contributions to the record earned her widespread acclaim in Sierra Leone’s music business.
Star Zee has been able to enter a field dominated by males since the beginning of her solo career and maintain her position. She has performed alongside various musicians from her homeland and abroad, including a collaboration with Nigerian icon Patoranking, in the United Kingdom and Australia. She won an award for “Best Work of the Year” for her collaboration with renowned dancehall heavyweight Stonebwoy.
Star Zee is one of Sierra Leone’s most prominent and important female artists. She aspires to maintain her love and enthusiasm for the entertainment business while also conveying a positive picture of Sierra Leone.
“Na by Foss” (2021), Life (2021), Around Ya (2020), Catch Fire (2019), Super Woman (2019), and many others are among her most recent works.
