We met Nadirah X after her show in Casalabate Music Festival 2017, Salento (Italy). Nadirah aka Nadz is a jamaican female rapper. In 2002 she won the Irie FM / CME Big Break Competition which led to perform at Chris Blackwell’s Island Village where she met Brian Jobson and Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics. Stewart invites Nadz to England where she begins a series of collaborations and productions with some of the most important musicians of the world including Mick Jagger from Rolling Stones, Annie Lennox and Jimmy Cliff.
She writes a part of the official Anthem of Greenpeace. During 2011 she is the leader of “Conspiracy For Good” campaign, a form of social entertainment called “Social Benefit Storytelling”. This campaign produced a contribution to open 5 bookstores in Africa, to give 50 scholarships to african students and to print over 10,000 books for libraries in Zambia through WeGiveBooks.org
