Ya Kid K is the older sister of the artist known as Leki.
Her real name is Manuela Barbra Moasco Kamosi and was born in Zaire in 1973.
This rapper was originally introduced to world audiences through her work with Technotronic.
She moved to Belgium when she was 11 years old, then Chicago, Illinois, USA, where she was introduced to rap and deep house music.
On her return to Belgium she teamed up with Jo Bogaert of Technotronic.
Together they performed on 1989’s international hit single, “Pump Up The Jam”. She then appeared alongside professional and personal partner MC Eric on the breakthrough hit, “This Beat Is Technotronic”. They teamed up again with Technotronic for “Get Up! (Before The Night Is Over)’, which was another major international hit.
The birth of a child then interrupted her plans for a solo career. She has performed occasionally since then and we are thrilled to have her with us for Strangers in the Night 2023.
