Biography

Haddy Jatou N'jie (born 25 June 1979 in Oslo) is a Norwegian singer, songwriter, writer and journalist. Her father is Gambian and her mother is Norwegian. She grew up in Kolbotn near Oslo and is the eldest of five siblings. Her younger sister is illustrator and picture book writer Lisa Aisato.

Career

N'jie has worked as a reporter for Dagsrevyen and is a columnist for Dagbladet. She hosted the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 with Erik Solbakken and Nadia Hasnaoui. She hosted the annual telethon on Norway's largest TV channel NRK 1 in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2013.

When Norway held a national ceremony of remembrance on 21 August for the 77 victims of the worst attacks on the country since World War Two, the TV broadcast was hosted by N'jie. She also hosted the one year memorial concert on 22 July 2012.

In 2011 she hosted the prestigious sports award show Idrettsgallaen from Hamar Olympic Amphitheatre together with Erik Solbakken and in 2012 and 2013 with Anne Rimmen. The show was broadcast on NRK.

N'jie has toured Norway several times, both as a solo artist and as part of the comedy group Queendom, consisting of herself and four other black Norwegian women, all sharing in part African backgrounds. Much of the group's material lampoons either Norwegians or Africans.
