About Samba Peuzzi

Samba Peuzzi emerged as one of Senegal's most popular rappers during the late 2010s and early 2020s, thanks to his determined flow, pop sensibility, and suave fashion sense. Rapping and singing mainly in Wolof as well as French and English, he expresses romantic yearning on smooth, hook-filled songs such as his 2019 hit "Marie & Cheikh." Samba Tine was born in Dakar in 1996, and grew up in the city's suburbs, where he honed his skills as a freestyle rapper. Going by the moniker Samba Peuzzi, he joined the Reptyle Music label in 2013, and began releasing music in 2016, in addition to becoming a finalist in Senegal's biggest rap competition, the Flow Up. He appeared on his label's 2017 compilation 221, and continued to appear on releases by labelmates such as BM Jaay and Dip Doundou Guiss. Continuing his own prolific output, he scored millions of views with his 2019 single "Marie & Cheikh," which was followed by further tracks like "Ndongo" and "La Famille," leading up to the release of Senegal Boy, his debut full-length. ~ Paul Simpson
