Sarah Suhairi aims to be Malaysia's first hijab-wearing rapper

Over the years, the global music scene has witnessed a flurry of ferocious female rappers like Nicki Minaj and Cardi B break into the male-dominated hip-hop scene.

Over on our shores, new singer Sarah Suhairi is eager to further break the boundaries of hip-hop as she sets her mind to become the country’s first ever hijab-wearing hip-hop and rap artiste.

The 18-year-old who was crowned the winner of Big Stage, a reality talent show for new and up-and-coming singers, last September shared that the genre had always appealed to her.

She even showcased some of her rapping skills during an episode of the show, when she performed a cover of K-Pop BlackPink’s hit tune Ddu-Du Ddu-Du that had rap elements to it.

“I listen to a lot English hip-hop and rap songs and I’ve incorporated some rap elements in my new single Nyawa Dan Raga.

“This is just my first step towards becoming Malaysia’s first hijab-wearing rapper,” she said in a recent news report.

“After this, I hope to release a full hip-hop and rap single,” she said.

The music video for Nyawa Dan Raga available on YouTube has received more than two million views since its release on Oct 15.

Not the same color as the picture

Not a 4 way stretch fabric

This is only a two way stretch so it does not stretch when you wrap around your head which makes difficult shaping around the face. Otherwise it is thin fabric and breathable.

Not stretchy

This is 2 way stretch fabric that makes it difficult contouring around face. Fabric is thin but does not form proper shape even when folded. The folds do not come out neat. It is no where close to the way shown in the picture.

Wonderful!

I purchased the Hijabs to give to a new friend who needed some cheering up. The items that I purchased and received were wonderful. I am certain that each time she wears them, she will feel grateful for the beauty of the well made products. Thank you for making the products available and for your swift service.

Cotton voile green hijab

I’m 60 years. And thanks so much. Beautiful colors, the fabric quality is great. Not sure why other people feedback say otherwise. I will come back to purchase from you again.
