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.

Pale Mauve Viscose Hijab

Great Quality

Loved my scarf !

Light but wrinkles right away!

A very lightweight hijab but it wrinkles hopelessly upon use! Unless you can iron before each wear, it's just not worthwhile

strawberry pink is my favorite

I love strawberry pink. It is very pretty.
