Sampa The Great was Born in Zambia, raised in Botswana and is currently based in Sydney, Australia. She is part of the emerging hiphop scene in there (The Guardian called her “Australian hiphop’s next great hope”) and HERoes Act 2 is the latest in Sampa’s exciting narrative series of songs and collaborative project that includes her debut The Great Mixtape.

Born in Zambia, at a young age Sampa Tembo and her family decided to move to Botswana, where she was raised.  Separating Sampa from her peers is the upbringing and life experiences that inform her lyrics. Once, a group of boys were set to perform a rap song at her primary school. She was intrigued by their performance and asked if she could join the group, the response: “You can’t rap with us, because you’re a girl.” From that moment forward she decided not only to be a great female artist, but a great artist period.
