Khtek is a female rapper and songwriter from Khemisset, Morocco. Considered as the new face of female rappers in Morocco, her fierce attitude and raw lyricism lead her to impose herself in the Moroccan hip-hop scene, a musical genre mainly dominated by men. She started writing in 2016 as a means of sincere expression, but it was not until 2019 that Khtek launched herself into the rap scene through freestyles and her debut single “Kick Off”. Khtek’s originality comes from her ability to discuss various subjects and fight for equality while maintaining a sonically powerful sound, earning her a feature in BBC’s list of 100 Most Influential Women, 2020.
