Here's everything you need to know:Little Simz, whose real name is Simbiatu "Simbi" Abisola Abiola Ajikawo, is an award-winning rapper from Islington in London.She was raised on a council estate by her mother and father alongside her siblings .Little Simz rose to fame with the independent release of her first three albums, A Curious Tale of Trials + Persons (2015), Stillness in Wonderland (2016) and Grey Area (2019).When Grey Area was released, it was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize and won the awards for Best Album at both the Ivor Novello Awards and the NME Awards.

Executive producers are Warren Littlefield, the Coen Brothers, Steve Stark of Toluca Pictures, Kim Todd and Vincent Landay.Season 5’s logline is as follows: “‘Fargo’ has traveled through decades, cities and families, and the fifth installment will be no different: Set in 2019, when is a kidnapping not a kidnapping, and what if your wife isn’t yours?”The critically acclaimed series, which has previously featured Billy Bob Thornton, Chris Rock, Kirsten Dunst and Jessie Buckley, has garnered six Emmys, including one for Outstanding Miniseries upon its debut in 2014.Last year, ahead of the show’s eventual Season 5 renewal, Hawley said he would want the series to end after this installment.
