About

Sic'Nis

A professional working artist, Sic’Nis is an acronym standing for: ‘Succeed-In(g) Impossible Circumstances Needs Intellectual Strength

An MC, song-writer, radio/events host, youth mentor and a mother to an amazing young man.

Sic'Nis had always had an affinity for Arts & Entertainment so in 2005 she took the first steps to realising her dreams and ambitions by researching local recording studios & producers in her hometown of Birmingham. Doing due diligence, she chose one, booked herself in and has not looked back since.

Described as "fearless, resilient, confident, intelligent, seasoned & ambitious with a strong head for business, as well as naturally exceptionally gifted”, 

Sic'Nis made a name for herself when no one would give her a chance. Shunning the tried & tested path of her peers she created her own niche market. Her style can not be placed in any one box.

Dogged determination & relentless quirky self-promotion tactics got Sic'Nis noticed by the legendary American multi-platinum Hip-Hop group the ‘Wu Tang Clan’ who musically adopted, and, to an extent, provided one to one artist development whilst providing a platform to showcase her poise, prose & personality via a radio show on their worldwide network, Wu World Radio. {2010-Present}
