Hip Hop // Dublin, Dublin // She / Her

Celaviedmai has emerged as one of the most thrilling names in the Irish music scene, carving her path as one of the few female urban artists to achieve such acclaim. The pinnacle of her career unfolded in 2023, marked by milestones like being chosen as the opening act for Kelis, named as Breakthrough 2023 artist by GAY TIMES and Coca Cola, debuting live in Prague and Brussels, and securing her first Irish iTunes #1 with the collaborative track "Spark" alongside GOAL.

Hailing from Galway in the west of Ireland, Celaviedmai's music is revered for its genre-blending within urban contemporary music. Her lyrics include English, French, and Irish, paying homage to her Ivory Coast heritage. Mai's live performances distinguish her from most rappers, with a full band, live vocals and unbelievable connection with the audience. Having opened for renowned artists like Kelis, Lil Wayne, Mac Miller, and Nova Twins, she has earned her place on festival stages and as a headliner at events around the country.

In 2022, Celaviedmai started garnering attention with a cover story in the Irish Sunday Times Culture Magazine, her first E.P ‘Both Sides of the Story’ and an unforgettable Other Voices debut. The following year, she was highlighted by The Irish Times in their '50 people to watch in 2023' setting the stage for an impressive year. From performing for over 13,000 people in Trafalgar Square to headlining in London, featuring in festivals like Electric Picnic, Longitude, Body & Soul, Boardmasters, All Points East and being named a GAY TIMES x Coca Cola Breakthrough Artist 2023, Celaviedmai continued to make waves.

The momentum continued with her first Irish headline ISSA NEW ERA! tour, leading up to the highly anticipated release of her second E.P in March 2024. The new project, inspired by afro and dance elements within hip-hop, is led by the energetic single 'Cool Ya Temper,' heralded as Mai's best work to date. With televised performances on Hot Press x Virgin Media’s Uprising and the iconic Fanning at Whelan's in Spring and a lineup of exciting shows slated for 2024, Celaviedmai's influence on the Irish music landscape is set to flourish further.
