Born in Brooklyn, New York, Nyoka Ny-D began her musical journey at the tender age of three years old. Greatly influenced by her Trinidadian heritage, the swift rhythms of the islands, the Neo-Soul movement, and the sounds of Hip-Hop, Nyoka Ny-D, emcee, singer, producer, and songwriter, has a unique and promising sound. Inspired by artists such as Bob Marley, Jill Scott, Me’shell Ndegeocello, Bilal Oliver, Andre 3000, TLC, Missy Elliot and Lauryn Hill, Nyoka Ny-D has a unique and soulful voice that always capture the ears of listeners. She also has the potential to be one of the best female emcees in the musical world. Known for her charismatic stage presence and energy, Rebel Ny-D is a delight to see live. Nyoka Ny-D produces her own music, music videos and art/graphics.
Her music relays passion, peace and love, but is often balanced with pain, sorrow, and the realities of life, such as poverty. “Music should represent life and life is full of contradictions; nothing is black and white, and my musical style and topics range in color.”
Magical Fruit, Nyoka Ny-D’s second project, a fusion of hip-hop, reggae, pop, neo-soul, and soul is free and available now.
Blueberry Ocean is Nyoka's latest Project.
