Four years after its establishment, L city’s budding trap gang, Brainlock has leaped forward by recruiting a new female face in the crew, Cookie Kay.
Cookie, the first female member of the crew is a versatile artist with RnB, afro, and trap skills in her blood. She is already commanding some respect courtesy of her debut single “Bitter Sweet”.
Having grown up following the rap, and RnB music for some time, Cookie Kay says she believes time is now ripe for her to venture into professional world of music.
“I think this is the right time for me to showcase my musical skills. My touch, and Brainlock’s are just similar, so I feel I will easily blend in,” she hopes.
On his part, one of the co-managers of Brainlock, Alfred Simwaka, believes Cookie Kay is the right piece to fit in the crew, having lacked a female touch for some time.
“Cookie’s vision and style of music is similar to Brainlock’s. We feel she’s in the right house and we’re all glad to have her around,” he praised.
Minus Cookie Kay, Brainlock Fam has five other artists under its belt namely, Kizmet, Stan Kush, T kas, Jeff Nyimbo, and Boi sticx.
The crew came into the limelight following the release of its song, “Kwaola” and the corresponding visuals which had guest appearances by one of the M-Dubz’ most trending urban musicians, Quest.
Earlier this year the group released an Extended play called Drip school and had five songs that are still making headlines and are catching waves in various media platforms across the country.
And recently, it released a song, “Video Call”, which was premiered on 2FM’s Made on Monday programme.
