Hailed as the Asian Eminem by East London Grime legend Lethal Bizzle, Shizzio hardly needs an introduction. Born and bred on the borders of East London & Essex, this rapper has single handedly battled and navigated his way into an undeniable realm. His first ever video featured Tim Westwood & Kat Man (Choice FM) way back in 2006 and Shizzio has gone from strength to strength. Now a regular play listed artist on Bobby Friction's BBC Asian Network Show & Nihal's BBC Radio 1 show, Shizzio has proven himself as the only asian rapper that has a world wide audience. Play listed in over 150 countries world wide, Shizzio has had the a number one record in Venezuela as well as a most requested song in Miami, China and UK.

His 'Shizzio sagas' -- a program documenting his journey is a regular shown across the globe, has thousands of hits and is mentioned in the worlds most famous and prestigious blog sites. He has also acted in a bollywood movie hence proving the snow ball effect of Shizzio is well and truly on the way.

Shizzio also become the first ever urban artist to grace a TEDx stage delivering the only standing ovation speech at the TEDXOxbridge event held at Oxford university. TED's current curator Chris Anderson personally posted shizzio's speech on his social networking pages.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
