Fotan Laiki, a.k.a. Wong Laiki, was 100% born and raised in the shattered parts of Hong Kong and finally sought her peaceful retreat in Fo Tan. Full-time Fiji Wifey, part-time performer, rapper & DJ, Laiki picked up playing CDJ while waiting for her brownies to be baked. She’s never too serious — it doesn't work for her — and she needs her chill to experiment with music, multimedia, and freestyle all the way.
Laiki debuted as a member of girls duo Cooking Bitchess and local party community Hui Lau Gang. In June 2017, she joined forces with Youngqueenz and dropped the breakout music video “FOTAN LAIKI”. Since then Laiki has been touring in Mainland China, appearing at festivals and shows in Sonár Hong Kong 2018, Hangzhou, Shanghai etc.
