Beni Bjah

Beni Bjah - is like an unstoppable tidal wave when it comes to live hip-hop, this incredibly skilled artist first started recording music in 2003, driven by the raw but real styles of 2Pac, and helped form the Perth Hip Hop outfit ‘Life Kwest’ working with producer ‘Dazastah’ (SBX), the group released the Perth Hip Hop classic track ‘How Ya Like Me Now, which would serve as Beni’s official music debut

Born out of life-long frustrations of systemic racism encountered no only in Perth but across the country, Beni took his love of hip-hop, and passion for his people to pen this lyrical wake-up call Australia needed with his debut single ‘Survivor’ making history marking Beni the first-ever Indigenous artist to win ‘West Australian Music Song of the Year Grand Prize Award’

With a substantial history of live performance and experience opening the stage for acts such as Grand Master Flash, RZA, Method Man & Red Man, Beat Nuts, ONYX, The Outlaws, Tyga, AKALA, Cypress Hill, Slaughterhouse and Naughty By Nature just to name a few
