Ilari Sahamies Appears in Rap Video for Finnish Band Teflon Brothers
Teflon Brothers, a hip-hop and rap group out of Helsinki, Finland, originally consisted of Pyhimys, Heikki Kuula, and Voli, but last year, online poke pro Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies paid a reported €50,000 to join their ranks.
Initially thought to be a marketing gimmick, it soon became apparent that the deal was very real.
"Money has been already paid," said Sahamies. "I did it because I just like rap."
Teflon Brothers released their first single, "Matkal Kotiin," in 2006, and their first album followed three years later. In 2014, they had their first number-one single, "Maradona (Kesä '86)," which appears on their fourth album, Isänpäivä.
"We think he will do well, but we do not put any pressure on his shoulders," the Teflon Brothers said after Sahamies joined the group. "It is not part of our style."
Now, Sahamies makes his Teflon Brothers debut rapping in Finnish in their new music video for Pämppää. Check out the video below:
