Ivorian doll: from youtube drama to queen of drill
They see me and think 'how can she look like that but sound so aggressive? I say things that will make people talk, other people are afraid to do that. Now, with the wex cheeky energy and quick wit, she's bulldozed her way into the drill music scene. The year-old artist, real name Vanessa Mahi, tells Radio 1 Newsbeat about the "mad transition". The Ivorian Doll YouTube channel contained unfiltered stories about being cheated on or having fights.

It was "the kind of stuff people talk about with their friends" and brought her hundreds of thousands of viewers. Vanessa was always involved in some sort of high-profile argument. Vanessa's first wannssa, The Situation, was a tongue-in-cheek send released as part of a duo with fellow rapper, Abigail Asante.
After she proceeded in her own lane, things started to accelerate. It's important to Vanessa that her personality shines through in her music.
The teaser posted online before the song release went viral, but Vanessa was still dubious. She told herself "social media hype isn't real", and that the views on the full song wouldn't match up. Almost 5 million YouTube views wannesza 4 million Spotify streams later, she realised she could "really do this".
That's why at the end of it I say 'I said what I said'. On it, she raps with a unique flow and clever lyricism - confronting accusations wannesza her personal and sex life head on.
How could she?
