Sampa the Great: Woman on Fire

Friday 23rd June / presented by Caitlin Nienaber

It’s been fascinating and inspiring to watch the rise of Sampa the Great over the past two years.

Born in Zambia and raised in Botswana, the Sydney-based MC has earned a huge following off the back of a handful of mixtapes and EPs as well as a heap of touring.

Last year she collaborated with Melbourne hip-hop act REMI and they’re reunited on new track Fire Sign from REMI’s Sensible J.

Before they hit Perth together Caitlin Nienaber jumped on the phone with Sampa to catch up on her recent trip to the UK and Europe.

Play Sampa the Great
