Licky finally drops EP, album loading

Licky is a sensational singer/rapper who took the local music industry by storm a few years ago when she dropped Real Love. The song, that talks about the beauty of innocent unconditional love, played from every corner, and the unique R&B and hip-hop sound not familiar on the local scene, catapulted her to stardom. The sultry lass has been on a roll since then and even when she appeared to have disappeared from the limelight, it would seem that she was busy cooking up her latest offering. The success of Real Love was followed by Eshe and most recently Real bad, which features Dramaboi.
