Yuh dun know Nikki Z talk di tings.
Whether hosting big gigs like Reggae Sumfest or on the radio shows she’s hosted in different markets, she’s never been one to hold back, sharing honest and unfiltered opinions of, and enthusiasm for, the music and culture she lives and breathes. After spending the last few years in Jamaica, the Caribbean media queen, LargeUp sistren and all-around good gyal recently set up shop in South Florida, where she’s opened her own studio and launched an onslaught of content that we’re doing our best to keep up with.
Her new daily show Nikki Z Live can be heard on 96.1 and 92.7 in Miami/Ft.Lauderdale weekday mornings from 7 to 11 — and worldwide via her site, www.NikkizLive.com and the usual apps like TuneIn — but those looking for a more concentrated dose can also tune in to one of two podcasts she’s started recently. There’s Nikki Z Live: The Interviews, uninterrupted interviews with the artists and personalities featured on her show, and Sex Weed and Reggae, a raw and uncensored format where she’s taking on some taboo topics and giving artists the platform to go deep on issues they might otherwise not touch.
Fresh off recent interviews with Beenie and Bounty, Nikki reached out to LargeUp to premiere her latest interview with Keznamdi, who’s coming off his biggest tune to date with, “City Lock.” The brother of singer Kelissa and entertainment personality Kamila McDonald speaks on growing up in a musical household, how his tight family unit is getting through quarantine, and how he’s coping with distance while residing in California.
