Hanan Hamdi is anything but ordinary! Born in Germany to Moroccan parents, Hanan looks neither like a typical German nor a typical rap singer. Growing up in Germany ‘different’ and without a father, Hanan struggled with her identity. In Germany she was ‘the Moroccan’ and in Morocco she was ‘the German’. Learn how she came to understand that having two cultures is a precious gift. Hanan’s love of music helped her find herself and her music communicates powerful messages of acceptance, love and family. As Namika, she would later give many interviews about her background and upbringing. This book is based on those interviews as well as on the song texts she herself writes. After all, the name Namika means ‘the writer’.
