Артистка-виконавиця хіп-хоп  alyonaalyona  - приклад для багатьох людей не тільки в Україні, але й за кордоном, і не лише через її музику, а ще й на підставі її суспільно-політичних послань. З того часу, як Путін напав на Україну, alyona alyona робить все для підтримки людей в Україні, і відстоює свободу своєї країни.
W1ZE  - артистка початківець і співачка з Зімбабве, що проживає у Відні. Для своєї музики, що охоплює усі жанри, вона створила свої власні норми, так само, як і для свого життя. Поруч з її пристрастю до музики W1ZE прагне до того, щоб відігравати важливу роль в музичній індустрії. "Акцептувати саму себе є найважчою частиною, але також і самими важливим кроком, а тільки потім слідує решта» заявляє співачка.

alyona alyona's live carrier started in 2019, though she makes hip-hop music for more than 10 years. The young kindergarden teacher from a small town near Kyiv became the overnight hip-hop sensation. alyona alyona raps in her native language Ukrainian. Massive, dynamic drive put to dark, pumping beats. alyona alyona is a role model in Ukraine - her videos, in which she proudly dances as the queen of the street in front of the housing projects of her hometown Baryshivka, or stages herself as a fairytale matriarch in a dystopian world, have millions of viewers.

alyona alyona does without bling and pomp. In her songs, she prefers to talk about images of women beyond the usual beauty clichés ("Ribki") or young adults who bemoan the situation in Ukraine and leave the country ("Salischaju swij dim"). She’s a pop artist who’s grounded, having worked at the supermarket checkout and as a make-up saleswoman before becoming an educator and studying psychology. Now she no longer delivers her message - informative and often humorous - as a preschool teacher, but as a  powerful rap performer.

Since Ukraine is attacked by Putin alyona alyona does everything possible to support the people in the Ukraine and stands up for the freedom of her country.

“To conform” is something you will not find the upcoming singer known as W1ZE doing anytime soon or better said never. The young Zimbabwean has arrived to show us that you don’t really have to conform to anyone’s standards but your own.
At the age of 16 she started recording herself on her phone. What started out as curiosity and fun quickly turned into a desire.

During a period of time W1ZE struggled to find a genre to call her own, her influences varied from Chaka Khan and Prince to Beyoncé and FKA Twigs. She loves experimenting with sounds and melodies, including different elements that are enchanting and colorful.
Describing her music as chameleonic might sound mystifying at first but taking a closer look into the artists roots you will quickly realize that owning your identity while giving yourself enough space to be as diverse as possible is very important to W1ZE. With a mix of Zimbabwean, German, Indian and Malaysian her art reflects her identity.

Besides her passion for music W1ZE aspires to play a big role regarding inclusivity in the music industry. “Accepting yourself is the hardest yet the most crucial step after that the rest will follow”, the singer proclaims.
