Kenyan rapper Nazizi joins boxing class after losing 30 Kgs


After successfully losing more than 30 kilograms body weight early this year, Kenyan rapper Nazizi Hirji, has resorted to learning some boxing.

The rapper, who shed weight in a span of five months, has in the past week subscribed to kickboxing lessons from Tanzanian rapper Zola D, who doubles up as her body fitness trainer.

Nazizi took to her official Instagram to share images of her new undertaking.

She captioned one of the photos: “This month we changed up the workout; we are not weightlifting much, we are doing bodyweight exercises and kickboxing with Zola D and Werrason Sanya; my two masters.”

The Jump and Shout hit-maker has, however, admitted she has faced challenges coping with the new workout lessons.

“It’s so challenging, I can’t explain the pain in my body; my arms, my wrists, my shoulders, my knees…”

Nevertheless, she has vowed not to give up saying: “I miss my weights but I trust in the process. No excuses – pain is nothing. No pain, no future.”

Seemingly the dancehall artiste is fully out to become physically fit in every aspect; at least her effort is paying off.

Nazizi early 2015 divulged junk food and the love for ice cream and chocolates posed her a serious health scare, prompting her to lose weight.

She also did away with the baggy-jeans, tomboy look which was her trademark appearance for 15 years of being in the music industry.

Here are Nazizi’s photos during boxing lesson:
