The Nigerian-British outspoken women with eclectic style and happen to also have amazing voices make up the girl group called Shiikane.
The group comprises of three sister twins HRH Shay and Princess Annamay, and baby sister Baby-Kay. The group is not exactly new beginning in 2009 with a debut mixtape SHiiKANE Touched this and followed the mixtape with their first single Bamboo Dey Chop In 2009, SHiiKANE started their professional career by releasing their debut mixtape, SHiiKANE Touched This, followed by their premiere single, “Bamboo Dey Chop,” produced by Ziro. The trio has not slowed down for the past 7 years releasing music constantly and finding their way to the top of the African music scene.
The group’s sound is influenced by a number of different places but the signature West African afro-beat feel is definitely there.
“Growing up, we listened to all kinds of music… Motown to Nigerian traditional music. The Jacksons, George Benson and Stevie Wonder were favorites, as well as British pop; like The Beatles, David Bowie and Phil Collins.” Kay explained during an interview with Parlé Magazine.
“Then when our senior brother came back to England from boarding school in Nigeria, he introduced us to New Jack Swing and Teddy Riley. That’s when it all changed. We never heard anything like it before. It evoked something spiritual that can’t be described. All the music described influenced us.” Shay added during the same interview.
And clearly, they have fun together.
And people are in love with their music, their fan base is loyal.
