Cherrie: The Scandinavian RnB star with Somali roots

As part of a new four-part series called Diaspora Diaries, RnB and hip hop artist Cherrie talks about her success and her struggle to find identity as a black woman in Scandinavia.

Cherrie was born in Norway to Somali parents and raised in Sweden. However, she attributes the success of her hip hop career to the Somali diaspora across Europe.

The BBC caught up with her during September's general election in Sweden - where an anti-immigration party was vying to make large gains.
