Ferhan Nil Karaibrahimgil (born 17 October, 1976), also popularly known simply as Nil (Turkish for the Nile), is a Turkishpop/rocksinger and songwriter mostly noted for her distinct lyrics. Nil's passion and admiration for music stems from her father, Suavi Karaibrahimgil, who is also a musician although he is not currently active in the Turkish music industry.
Up to 2007, Nil has managed to release 3 successful albums along with several singles of her own here and there. In 2002, her debut album Nil Dünyası (The Nile World) brought her into the spotlight with hits that included "Kek" ("Cake") and "XL" ("Extra Large"). Two years later, Nil followed with another album called Nil FM which achieved success similar to that of her first album. Some of the hit singles released from that album included "Gitme Yoksa…" ("Yoksa, Don't Go…"), "Akbaba" ("Vulture"), "Ben Aptal Mıyım?" ("Am I Stupid?") and "Bronzlaşmak" ("Tan/Sunburn") as well.
In 2006, Nil would go on to release her third album called Tek Taşımı Kendim Aldım (I Took My Only Way Out). The album brought Nil further success with hits including "Pırlanta" ("Diamond"), "Peri" ("Fairy"), and of course, "Organize İşler Bunlar" ("These Are Organized Jobs") which is the original soundtrack of the movie Organize İşler. All of the three singles from this album managed to easily top most Turkish charts.
In late 2006, Nil released a single called, "Yaş 18" ("Age 18") which is one of the two tracks she recorded for the soundtrack of the Turkish movie Sınav (The Exam). Both the movie and the song deal with the pressure Turkish students face preparing for matriculation, as well as angst from coming of age.
