Hanover, a city in Germany’s Saxony region, is understood for musical acts like rock band The Scorpions and pop singer Lena Meyer-Landrut. Lil Hanky Panky desires to be the breakout dancehall/reggae artiste from her hometown.
The dancer/singjay has lived in Jamaica for the past 4 years, showing her raunchy moves in music videos and her vocal prowess on songs like Sativa.
Lively is Lil Hanky Panky’s latest crack on the charts. It’s one among the songs on the Green Dot ‘riddim’, produced by Claude Mills for Chase Millz Records.
While embracing the dancehall sound and culture, she refuses to be placed in a box.
“My music is as versatile as my musical background. I fuse hip hop, Afrobeats, dancehall, trap, pop…and still make it my very own,” said Lil Hanky Panky.
Typical of major cities all over the world, Hanover has a cosmopolitan populace which reflects in the different sorts of music she appreciates — from Bob Marley and Nirvana to Jay-Z.
The town’s clubs also provide healthy servings of dancehall music, comparable to songs by Beenie Man, Vybz Kartel, Spice, and Shenseea.
Since settling in Jamaica, Lil Hanky Panky has relaunched her recording profession. To this point, she has recorded collaborations with Sizzla, Chi Ching Ching and Bounty Killer.
Working with those A-listers has raised Lil Hanky Panky’s profile and set the pace for solo efforts like Lively. Profession-wise, she is satisfied along with her current status.
“People been seeing and hearing my name before that through my appearance in big artiste’s music videos and the butterfly tattoo [on her buttocks] kinda added on to the recognition. Working with big artistes as a dancer is a pleasant experience already but actually creating music with a next artiste is a next level and after all, having your name next to a giant name is a excellent look,” she said.
