When Rabbit a.k.a. Kaka Sungura dropped his “Ligi Soo” remix he also unveiled some of the hottest (both in appearance and lyrical prowess) female rappers this industry boasts of. Among them was the lovely Petra.
Apart from the fact that she’s the chic that killed it with a sick flow in the remix, not much is known about her. So how about I uncover her to you? Leggo…
Petra Bockle (stage name is PETRA) is a rapper/singer and also a make-up artiste born in Kenya to a Kenyan mum and Seychellois dad. The 18 year old femcee has one sister and brother who live at their family home in Diani.
She lost her dad in 2004 at a tender age of 9 and has been brought up by her single mother.
Petra started her music when she was 9 and by the time she was 11 she was given a chance to hit the studio at Ufuoni Records where she worked with artists such as Ukoo Flani among others.
Her genre is mainly rap; she is commonly known for doing urban hip-hop and fusing rap with ragga, trance and any type of afro-beat.
Petra has worked with Sheila Kwamboka (former BBA contestant and radio presenter at HBR). She then worked with Rabbit on his “Ligi Soo” remix which featured artists like Madtraxx, Mejja, Chiwawa among others.
She says she’s influenced by Wyre and her main producers are Dillie and Saint P who previously worked at Homeboyz Production house. Some of the singles she’s recorded, “mind yo own biz”, “show em”, “mkali wao”, “hits”, “now you know” and “in a trance” yet to be released but are in the pipeline.
Petra recently moved to Nairobi to be able to concentrate on her music.
