“Nathalie Missaoui wasw born to be on stage – with all that entails (…) I must admit that this was the best 90 minutes I’ve seen. And perhaps the best Swedish hip-hop gig I’ve experienced in my life so far. “- Review of Kingsize Magazine 2015
Few artists in Sweden Cleo’s strong persona. Cleo, together with Vanessa Marko founded the feminist music collective Femtastic. By Femtastic they have gathered, inspired and created the scene to a large number of young women in urban music. This has led not only to long-term change in the music industry, but also built a strong and dedicated fanbase. Through her involvement, she has also laid the foundation for the much talked Grasp campaign against sexual violence and the creative collective Random Bastards.
Cleo has in 2016 been an issue with the series “Femtastic – Girls Up Front ‘on SVT and as one of the main characters in the second season of the hit program” Happy Street “on TV4, where she got to meet and interpret Nordman!
