The Rap: Catching Up With OKENYO

Known across the country by children and their parents as one of Play School’s beloved presenters, Zindzi Okenyo is a bit of a triple threat. On top of her TV gig, she’s a classically trained actor and professional musician who performs under the name OKENYO. She has a new EP out called SOLO, and she chats with The Rap’s Arrej Nur about her music, how accessibility of the arts needs to be improved, and the power of protest songs.
