Hijabi Rapper

This article by Muslimah Media Watch talks about, Sophie Ashraf,  a woman who wears hijab and is pursuing her passion of music and Islam by rapping about it. Ashraf goes by the name the “Burkha Rapper”.

The only thing we don’t like is the fact that once again hijab is labeled as a “burqa”.

The word just gives people an immediate thought of oppressed Afghani women. Unless I’m mistaken? Is burqa the new “in” word for hijab?

At the same time we don’t want to take away from Sophi Ashraf, she seems like a great new figure for the Muslim women’s arts scene!

Have any of you heard of her before?
