"The Wife of Wrath, who mixes an array of dance music styles- she puts care and love into each selection and mix - but as her name suggests- She’s is the wife ... of WRATH. I've known The Wife of Wrath since before she deejayed so seeing her start from the ground up to where she is now has been amazing but unsurprising. Her tenacity in the way she approaches her mixing, selection, and general artistic career and life is really what has shown everyone that she is in this for the long run.- Ariel Zetina

"When Itunuoluwa Ebijimi traveled to Lagos, Nigeria in 2016, she encountered women working in markets across the city selling locally made cosmetics — and especially shea butter, which she brought back to Chicago, where she's based today, and began researching closely. From doing deep dives into the history of the shea nut to understanding global traditions of handcrafted beauty products, Ebijimi saw a void in the market and eventually laid the foundation for Petty Butter: her all-natural, bespoke skincare line created to empower the QTPOC community through moisturizing shea butter mixes and Blacksoaps." -PAPER MAGAZINE
