Faberyayo

In 2003 Faberyayo (real name: Pepijn Lanen) raps together with Bas Bron, his brother Sander Lanen and some others in the group the Spaarndammerbuurt Kliek (Spaarndammerbuurt is a neighborhood in Amsterdam, kliek means clique.)

In 2004 he met Freddy Tratlehner (Vieze Fur) and Oliver Locadia (Willie Wartaal). They started the group ‘De Jeugd Van Tegenwoordig’ and made their first song: Watskeburt?! The song was released by Magnetron Music and became an instant hit.

Together with the Dutch artist Piet Parra & producer Rimer London, Faberyayo has a project under the name Le Le. Under this alias many singles and albums have been released, such as: Skinny Jeans, Breakfast, Flage, and many others.


In 2012 he releases his first official solo album: Coco. The album is a tribute to his girlfriend, who bears the same name as the album. In contrast to the way Pepijn raps at De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig, Coco (album) has a very charming and homey theme. The album was produced entirely by Benny Sings.

In 2014, Faberyayo wrote the critically acclaimed album Het Grote Gedoe 2: Angst & Walging. Translating the title of this album wouldn’t honor its credo, but it comes down to something that has to do with The Big Hassle. The album includes cult classics like Vinkgor, but also tear jerkers like Verdwijnen.
