Pryse is a Nigerian rapper who is all set to storm the Naija music industry. Born and bred in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, as Princess Esindu, she started rapping for church at the tender age of ten with her older brother, now popular US-based producer G.O.A (Giant of Africa).
She was encouraged down the path of music/entertainment by her family, who owned and ran one of the best recording studios in Port Harcourt – Frontline TV Studios. Pryse spent most of her teenage years listening to Jay Z, writing rhymes and recording songs. At the age of sixteen, she was an active member of the All Out Squad, a hip-hop crew which consisted of G.O.A, and others. Artistes she has worked with include, Frank D ‘Nero, Zubi, Mack Gee, Double Kay, Rha tha Answer and others.
She moved to the UK to study for a degree in Media and Communication, where she eventually started making music again. After graduating from NTU in 2011, she moved back to Naija because she feels like the game is ripe for a true female lyricist and she is more than willing (and capable) to fill that void. Her main influences include Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, M.I., Drake and others. She is a true music lover and listens to most genres.
