Moroccan emcee Soultana is a staunch advocate for women’s rights. And, with her percussive flow and zero tolerance for hypocrisy, her countrywomen have got a powerful ally.
She gave MTV Iggy an exclusive performance while visiting the World Nomads Morocco Festival in New York. We shot the rapper in the streets of Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens performing “Sawt Nssa” (Women’s Voices), her anthem for the struggles of women in her country. She rhymes in Morrocan Arabic but we added subtitles so if you don’t speak, you can still hear her loud and clear.
