The Hit Girl: Stella Mwangi

Written By: Nani Hapa—It’s probably best to get this out of the way: I am a big fan of Stella Mwangi (or STL as she is affectionately known by fans), whose slick rhyming skills and clever lyrics never fail to grab my attention. So imagine my gidiness when, after weeks of corresponding with her manager about interviewing the star, I received an e-mail from Stella herself saying “Yes I would love to do an interview with you.” Pardon the sentiment but all I could think was: cool. (Well, it was more along the lines of: way cool.) Read my Q&A with the Kenyan-born, Norway-raised rapper who is bringing much needed diversity to hip-hop with her gift of gab in The Hit Girl: Stella Mwangi.
