Biography
Rishma Kewita Bhajan, alias Lady K-Wida, lives in The Hague. Especially in the Surinam (Hindu) scene, she is better known as Rishma. She was the only female reggae/dancehall singer in different bands, like Delight and Xqlusiv. K-Wida worked together with different artists, like Oemar, Sagar and Ashnie.

Lady K-Wida came in contact with reggae and dancehall music throught Apache Waria. Since 2000 she is one of the singers in the Dutch Roots Reggae band Poor Man Friend. With this band, she also worked with artists like Papeman, Don Cudjo, Billyman, Elijah, Zappo and Missrah.

The first time K-Wida worked with Black Star Foundation, was during Anthony B's shows in 2006 (Paard van Troje, The Hague and Melkweg, Amsterdam). She assisted selector Den-Den on the mic before and after Anthony B's show.

Many more reggae events followed after that, like the monthly Black Star Wednesdays in Bitterzoet (Amsterdam) and off course Made in Jamaica on the 2nd of May in the Heineken Music Hall (Amsterdam) with Third World, Bunny Wailer and Capleton!

Summer 2007 K-Wida was working together with Osagyefo (Ghana), who was in Holland at that moment for shows with Poor Man Friend band. K-Wida also did some (backing) vocals on the debut album 'Blaze Fire' of Osagyefo (Black Star label 2007).

The first single of Lady K-Wida was officially released in May 2008. This summerhit has a nice reggae beat with an Indian flavour, the song is called 'Love Can make You Blind'. In January 2009 Lady K-Wida's second single was released, One Man Woman, feat. King Yellowman!

Recently Lady K-Wida decided she doesn't want to perform anymore. A life in the spotlight isn't it for her. We are very sorry about this because she has such a good voice, and we have reached so far during our cooperation of almost 2 years!
