It was the beautiful summer of 2009 and Jeanette Petri, editor in chief of Anattitude Magazine (the first and only existing international Hip Hop magazine on print, to present the female side of Hip Hop culture), was about to finish the 3rd issue of her magazine.
Living around the corner of JoBee, singer and radiohost at FM Brussel (now BRUZZ), they decided to throw a big release event in the centre of the city for the upcoming issue of the magazine. Therefore the two wanted to bring together a team of creative and motivated ladies with a heart for hiphop, exactly in the spirit of Anattitude.
They arranged a meeting in Ghent together with 5 others: urban photographer Lizairo, CYMO-blogger & music manager Nadia-O, singer/DJ Fatoosan, music manager Vaneeshua and musician/DJ MikiGold.
Not knowing each other that very well personally, it was instantly clear that they were on the same page when it came to the rich culture of hip hop. Their first event took place on October 2009 at Tavernier in Brussels and was a huge success. That’s when SupAfly was born as a collective and from that point, Mikigold and Fatoosan became the Collective's official DJ's. In 2010 the crew was asked to host a weekly live radio show on BRUZZ, the capital’s largest radio station.
Early 2012, Nadia began deejaying under the alias Young Mocro and Vaneeshua took her place behind the turntables as well. The collective began to form what is now the first and only female hip hop DJ crew in Belgium. Combining each their own sound and skills, the Supafly-DJ sets sound excitingly diverse, covering rap music from classic rap over the golden era boombap to fresh beats and trap. They’ve established a solid reputation in many clubs and have shared the bill with legendary hiphop artists such as Slum Village, Us3, Antipop Consortium, Dilated Peoples, Jedi Mind Tricks and Speech Debelle. Since 2016 the 4 deejays are hosting regular DJ nights at the Beursschouwburg in Brussels as well as curating concerts with Democrazy in Ghent since 2018.
Meanwhile, following their personal paths outside the collective, Jee Nice released a book about graffiti artist Rosy One and created the Female Photoclub in Frankfurt (check her work as a photographer). Lizairo continued her work as a photographer. Singer JoBee started her solo project JoBee Project and released one album and several songs.
