If you are into empowered women, strong bold lyrics, self-power and hip hop Leikeli47 is for you. Her sold-out show at The Roxy was full of intensity from the moment she stepped on the stage. Normalizing all kinds of beauty has been in her content and it drove the crowd wild raising their hands up in the air to display their rad nails upon the singer’s request.
Leikeli47’s music is definitely an anthem for many. Her song “Money” was highly awaited throughout the night but she left it almost till the end, getting the crowd singing along after sweating all night to the music. I am not sure if the A/C was off or it was the fiery performance but all were drenched after a serious get down.
Although Leikeli47’s face is always concealed, her gaze and presence were enough for all to see her toughness. Her latest album Acrylic engages with real scenarios of Leikeli47’s upbringing with a fierce female perspective.
