Chiedu Oraka

Synopsis

A highly driven 26 year old rapper, Chiedu is an important member of Hull’s music scene, and one of the city’s leading urban musicians.

Chiedu mixes fantastic wit with lyrical venom, rapping in a proud Hull accent, which gives him an edge that’s a perfect represention of our city.

A quality producer, Chiedu creates brilliant online media, from spur of the moment freestyles, to music videos (his video for ‘I’m From a City’ has 18,000 views.)


2015 saw Chiedu support the likes of Stormzy, Wretch 32 and Qemists, headlining Humber Street Sesh’s Urban Quarter and showcasing his ability and bravery to play to new audiences at Hull Jazz Festival and Cottingham Springboard Festival.

A champion of everything Hull, 2016 has so far been an opportunity to spread out of the city, playing a Radio1 Extra event in Leeds, along with HU1 Festival and Humber Street Sesh.
