       Sofia Ashraf

Sofia is a tamil rapper and singer who makes songs for the people, quite literally. She fights the companies exploiting their employees in India through her songs, fearlessly. Having worked for A. R. Rahman speaks a lot about her talent. She was known as ‘The Burqa Rapper’ due to her outfit in the initial years and she started out her career performing in a college fest, wearing a burqa, questioning people’s attitude towards muslims after the 9/11 attacks and since then, she has been singing songs for such social causes, trying to bring a change. Can’t say for sure if you would love her music, though for certain, her music would make you feel the revolution she is fighting for.
