Raiza Biza

aka Chulu Ruzibiza, Ray Ruzibiza


Over the last decade, Hamilton-based Rwandan New Zealand rapper Raiza Biza has been one of the most prolific performers and recording artists to emerge from the Aotearoa hip-hop scene.

Along the way, he’s released eight smooth and stylish solo projects, collaborated with American hip-hop stars like Oddisee and Black Milk, and toured overseas through Australia, China, Europe and the UK. Ten years after releasing his first official mixtape, Dream Something, Raiza has made an indelible mark on the New Zealand music landscape.
