Labyala Fela Da Jawid Fel, better known as Nosfell, was born in the Paris suburbs on 1 December 1977. He grew up in a family with Berber and Italian-Spanish origins. Labyala was a troubled child and fairly early on in life he discovered the joys of escapism, inventing his own imaginary world, Klokochazia. His fantasy archipelago of islands was run not by men, but by his own wildest imaginings. And from the age of 14 he began sharing aspects of this world via songs written in a made-up idiom, Klokobetz.
