Heavily rooted in the Afrobeats, Haitian Kompa, and Zouk music, Sigourney Sterling, with the stage name Sig Official, is a singer born in Port au Prince, Haiti, where she spent her childhood.
Relocating from the East to the West Coast, Sig Official moved to California for her college years and attended the Arts Institute of California, Los Angeles, where she produced arts for the local artists. It was this time, she discovered her lyrical prowess, nurtured it, and made her way to share her unique sound with the world in a powerful afrobeat and Haitian kompa, Zouk mix.
Acting as a beacon on the multitude of sounds in hip-hop culture, Sig Official’s music style is a successful blend of a multidimensional genre of music, making a perfect mix. Her lyrical prowess, and the powerful message embedded in the lyrics, made her most recent self-produced single, “Kreyol,” a smashing success in the local community and back home in Haiti.
Her unique style of euphoric melody for various cultures is made available by her efficient team on many platforms, including Spotify, Apple Music, Youtube, and many more.
Targeting an audience of music lovers worldwide, Sig Official’s focal point is Haiti Island. She sets her sights on introducing the rest of the world to the rich Haitian culture, diverse music, and unique people. She is also encouraging young artists from the island country to embrace and own the beautiful culture, as they reach out to a bigger audience.
For Sig Official, the buck does not just stop at making music. She aims to use her music to bring people the prevalent untelevised issues in the world. She also wants to give people from different ethnicities a safe platform to share their various experiences, where their distinct cultural identities are recognized and celebrated with Afro/Kompa beats.
A lyrical genius, Sig Official, breaks the streamlined hip-hop and rap category as she uses her multilingual ability to create an inclusive musical flow confronting the societal norm. Growing up in Haiti greatly influenced her lyrics, as she uses her platform to bring awareness to the challenges faced by the LGBTQ+ community in her home country, where the people still frown upon the practice.
Sig Official’s music is accepted and recognized just the way she wanted it, and she is glad to share her platform with people who need the push to stand up for themselves.
