Since the koala species is almost extinct, she wants to make sure that they are not forgotten. Thoughtful, right? Also, koalas cling onto trees, the same way the artist holds on to her dreams. Here is more about the young rapper that will give you a better understanding of who she is.

Dee Koala biography
Odwa Situma went to a Muslim school that mostly had coloured students. She participated in arts, especially poetry. However, even then, Odwa would still write rap verses as part of classwork presentations and even used to help her friends. Back at home, she grew up with a big brother who attempted rapping but did not take it seriously.
Previously, Odwa was convinced that poetry would only be her thing up until Grade 6. That changed while she was in Grade 12 in 2016 after she started recording and making music on the studio and loved it. At that time, she had a lot of friends who were into rapping. Those friends encouraged her to record her music after they heard some of her samples. It was, therefore, in 2016 that Dee Koala the artist came to being.
She has since worked on quite a few projects such as Dee Koala 4 the Khaltsha, a mixtape. The name of the tape came from the name Khayelitsha. Aside from it being a nickname, Khayelitsha translates to the word culture in English. Indeed, the tape is true to its meaning as it seeks to address the culture- ranging from the people to that of hip-hop. This is her biggest project yet, and she wants to nurse it as much as possible, so Dee Koala boyfriend is not her focus right now.
