CUL­TURAL QUEEN

DRUM - - Hey Teens -

The 24 year old has lived in Tan­za­nia, the US and Pretoria. She can speak Swahili, but she’s hot prop­erty for rapping in her mother tongue, Xit­songa. “There’s no­body who raps like this. That’s sim­ply be­cause no one raps in Xit­songa. Some try, but they get trapped into try­ing to mimic an isiZulu style of rap. My sound is me try­ing to be true to the Xit­songa lan­guage.”
