Wafia Al-Rikabi (born August 4, 1993), known professionally as Wafia, is an Australian singer songwriter of Arabic origin. Originally studying biomedicine at university, she began to write songs to escape its monotony. Her first major hit was "Let Me Love You" garnering over 3 million plays on Soundcloud.
She has since signed to indie record label Future Classic, releasing her debut EP XXIX in November 2015. The EP's lead single "Heartburn", received praise from producer Pharrell Williams being played during his Beats 1 radio show. Heartburn has also been featured on Kylie Jenner's Snapchat story several times.
In March 2016, she released the single "Window Seat" in collaboration with the New Zealand producer Thomston. Later in August 2016, she collaborated with her producer on XXIX and labelmate Ta-ku, releasing the EP (m)edian. The EP features a story about compromise in relationships, which both Wafia and Ta-ku experienced independently of each other in their lives.
