Jordan Stephens is best known for being one half of the hip-hop duo Rizzle Kicks. Joined by Harley Alexander-Sule, Rizzle Kicks have taken the charts by storm and worked with the likes of Olly Murs to create tracks. Throughout his time in the spotlight, Jordan has been targeted by racial discrimination that has taken a toll on his mental health and wellbeing. Now often booked as a BAME speaker for events, Jordan shares his experiences of racism and mental health as a passionate activist.
Rizzle Kicks was first formed back in 2008, and before long the pair were signed to Island Records, a subsidiary of Universal Music. Jordan and Harley then went on to produce successful albums Stereo Typical and Roaring 20s, which included tracks such as When I Was a Youngster, Mama Do the Hump and Skip to the Good Bit. Together, Rizzle Kicks have reached number 8 on the UK Singles Chart and had their album Stereo Typical certified Platinum. Rizzle Kicks have also enjoyed time touring with performances, and have also supported the Teenage Cancer Trust.
During his time in the limelight, Jordan has unfortunately fallen victim to racial discrimination and is now a popular choice as a BAME speaker for events. In the wake of George Floyd’s murder, Jordan was seen supporting Black Trans Lives Matter marches in London and has actively spoken out about how racism has affected his mental health. Passionate to represent black culture, Jordan Stephens is the perfect BAME speaker for a range of events.
