Nimco Happy is now a name known and loved by millions of people in Africa and around the world.
She is a Somali singer whose song Isii Nafta – also known as ‘I love you more than my life’ – blew up on TikTok last month, with thousands of people posting videos of themselves dancing to the catchy tune, including US rapper Cardi B and British-Somali Olympic athlete Mo Farah.
So how has she reacted to her new-found fame? She spoke to This Is Africa, the BBC’s African music programme.
