Flohio (AKA Funmi Ohio) is a British-Nigerian artist, rapper and songwriter hailing from Bermondsey, South London. Building on the blueprints of UK rap, Flohio’s sound pulls in references that span electronic music. Her latest single ‘Watchout’ was dubbed Best New Music by Pitchfork who described the track as “a warning call to her enemies and skeptics”. ‘Watchout’ followed Flohio’s debut solo single ‘Bands’, both of which have given her a reputation as a genre-bending new artist to watch. Currently on tour throughout Europe, Flohio’s live show was widely tipped among the must-see performances at this year’s Great Escape festival.
