KARL NOVA | Artist | Writer
Having fallen in love with poetry and Hip Hop at a young age, little did Karl Nova know he was beginning on a journey that would thrust him on the stage delivering poetic lines of his own in his unique, witty and energetic style.
Born and raised in London as well as Lagos, Karl always found it difficult to fit in, it reflects in his music because he speaks as one who knows what it is like to be on the margins, in a world where conformity seems to be the key in gaining acceptance, he has always been one to defy expectations and go against the grain.
Whether it is in rap format or spoken word poetry he seeks to give voice to the search for meaning and deep need for faith and hope. His music and poetry is like a diary of his journey, his highs and his lows, his discoveries, observations and personal breakthroughs. He is known for thought provoking and soul searching lyrics delivered in his own style which is sometimes tongue in cheek, other times serious and soul searching but always sincere and heartfelt. Ultimately the main theme of his work is redemption and bringing upliftment while staying true to himself and to his faith.
He has toured extensively with award winning gospel collective GK Real but has such a voracious appetite for recording that he dropped an album which featured Lisa McClendon, Dwayne Tryumf, Jahaziel an Butta P of Rhema Soul as well as 2 official mixtapes and a dance EP. He is known for his energetic soul barring live performances and he is truly an M.C that moves the crowd with such energy that seeing him live is something you must do.
