Kiz and Ken Blackman Ngongull Ze have been in rap since 1990, activists among the pioneers of Hip Hop in Gabon. On the road in February 2008, they arrived in Mali and decided to form Poetes Fyziks recording a cd (Poetik Fyzik) with the Abess featuring Budda (a rapper / student Gabon) and Jean Natty (a Senegalese toaster).
After six months in Bamako, the former members of the Kaya Syndikat (Ken Kiz) and NAF (Ze Ngongull Blackman), their respective groups in Gabon, decided to manage some artists including Pamela Badjogo and Tiken Jah Fakoly , heading to Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso. Their bags just unpacked, they recorded a single with Faso Kombat (one of the leading bands of Hip hop Faso) and Noyo, titled “ACP” for Artists Against Poverty.
They continued on to take the pulse of the hip hop scene Burkina Faso, both in the underground and then on larger trays, a sound system to Kolonaba in September 2008, a preview at the festival closing show “The Récréatrales,” October 15, 2008. In May 2009, the Poetes Fyziks guest starred in “Hip Hop for event integration,” and on June 13, 2009, they played to support Noyo dedication during his concert.
And to close this first year right, they snatched the title of “revelation of the festival” in Waga Hip Hop in October 2009. The year 2010 left them well anchored in the Burkina Faso Hip Hop landscape, hosting several concerts and events and meeting new people leading them to start work on a new album due out in 2011.
