The press coined her “Burkha Rapper” and she didn’t seem to be very happy about it. She said that it was not a gimmick but a part of her personality. In this music video that went viral, Sofia Ashraf  is leading a group of rappers and is asking the cleaning of a canal which she alleges has not been cleaned for 14 years now. The video was released by NGO Jhatkaa.
