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.

She recently dropped her EP titled For a Moment: #4am. She explains that all ten songs were inspired by different experiences as they were done over a period of time. “I experienced and observed different things during that time, so all the songs have their substance, message and feel,” she says. She had released four singles being: Free Love, Eshe, Push Away and Real bad. The latest song likely to blaze airwaves is 18 Again. “It is a feel good song with a house feel. It was my first time dabbling in the genre. The songs talks about living in the moment and throwing your cares away,” she says.

She says that the release of the EP had been a long time coming. “I had been sitting on this work and realised it was time for me to give the public what they deserve. It is good music that people from all works of life can identify with,” she explains. The EP is available on online streaming platforms such as SoundCloud and ITunes. Licky says that the hard copy of the album is available at All of Licky’s songs reflect creativity, artistry and impressive quality, which is hardly surprising, as she has worked with the finest producers in the local music industry, Bangu, Prez Beats, Man E and Ace J. The soft-spoken beauty further says that she always wanted to release her EP on her birthday, 12 May, but couldn’t due do that to logistical issues. She is now relieved that the EP is out and she can focus on completing her album.

“I am two songs away from finishing work on my album. I want people to experience the best of my music. I can’t confirm a release date now but the album will be a keeper,” she says. Licky’s growth in the music industry has been slow but stable and she concedes that she has taken her time to refine and perfect her craft. Licky will perform at DJ Frost’s birthday party on 31 May at MYKOP.
