Music Mania: Rizzle Kicks

This week is #MusicWeek on Nokia Connects – and as part of our celebration of all things musical, we have teamed up with some of our favourite artists to launch a great series of weekly competitions. Every Friday we’ll be featuring prizes from world class acts – so stay tuned!

First up it’s the mighty Rizzle Kicks: answer the question at the end of this post to win one of these Rizzle Kicks t shirts – and there’s a Nokia Lumia 610 up for grabs for one lucky winner too! Read on to find out more about the UK duo.


Rizzle (a.k.a. Jordan) and Sylvester (a.k.a. Harley) got together in 2009, when Rizzle asked Sylvester to sing over some of the raps he was working on. The combination worked, and the pair’s poppy hip hop has taken the UK by storm, with three Top 10 singles and a bestselling album already under their collective belt.

Following in the footsteps of artists like Dizzee Rascal, Tinchy Stryder and Tinie Tempah, Rizzle Kicks have found a way of making rap music commercially successful – with catchy melodies and laid back beats that hint at their love of old school hip hop. To see what other music they like, check out their Celebrity Mix on Nokia Mix Radio…

And the Rizzle Kicks boys are team players too, with a host of collaborations already under their belt – with the likes of Mayer Hawthorne, Olly Murs and James Corden (sort of).

To enter our competition, answer this question in the comments section below:

Who else would you like to see Rizzle Kicks work with, and why?

The competition ends at midnight GMT on Thursday 31st May. We will choose our favourite responses and contact the winners the next day. Good luck!

Full terms & conditions can be found here.


Congratulations to all of the winners, find out if you have won by scrolling down the comments section and looking for a reply from Joe. We are happy to award the Nokia Lumia 610 to Dean who replied to our question above with this:

“I’d like to hear them actually have Ed Sheeran on a tune instead of just the remix they did of his song: You Need Me, I Don’t Need You.” 

Thanks for entering everyone, we will be in touch if you have won. Look out for our next competition going live today on Nokia Connects.
