Remel London meets rising female rap sensation Ms Banks ahead of Nicki Minaj tour

By Remel London | Published on 15 February 2019

Music helped me not make the wrong choicesIn the music industry, a new year always sparks excitement for new music and new artists. So I wanted to shine a spotlight and speak with an artist who I consider a definite one-to-watch for 2019 and is someone I know whose life has transformed for the better, all because of the positive impact of music.

Allow me to introduce you to Ms Banks!

A multi-award winning artist from South London who oozes female empowerment & individuality, Ms Banks is described as having intelligent wordplay and lyrics with a firey but bubbly personality and has caught the attention of The Guardian, Evening Standard, The Independent, NME and Music Week, sharing personal experiences of being a woman and growing up in South London.

In 2018, rap royalty Nicki Minaj, gave Ms Banks a ‘shout out’ on Twitter and since then she has continued to capture the ears of the nation.

I’ve personally seen Ms Banks grow as an incredible artist so I wanted to find out just how much music has impacted her life. So I set off from London Bridge to South Bermondsey on Southern Rail to meet with Ms Banks at her latest studio session.

Listen to Remel London’s interview with Ms Banks:

Ms Banks is definitely destined for great things and is such an inspiration to many artists starting their music careers.

Look out for Ms Banks on tour across the UK with Nicki Minaj in March 2019 and stay tuned for more of my journeys with Southern to show how music is transforming lives!
