It was always going to be a weekend to remember and is not because it began on Friday the 13th. When I woke up on Saturday morning I knew that it was going to be one of those days I would live to tell the tale of. Beats and Rhythms Entertainment had organised an event to commemorate the golden generation of 1976, and what better way to get the message across than with hip-hop and poetry sessions.
You know a hip-hop show always brings you the coolest crowd so I had to be there one way or the other. The great thing about this event was that the organisers made sure that the performers are there on time you know how performers are like they just want attention whatever it takes so big ups to that. Locals showed their support and the atmosphere was just great the stage was set and all the performers were left to do is blow the crowd away.
CHECK OUT THAT SHORTY OVER THERE!!!
SNK AND HOMMIES!!!!
Everybody gave it their best shot that’s admirable to see independent artist promoting their joints “that’s wasup”. I personally have a multiple acts that blew me away but I have to say a couple of those stood out including Tasha and SNK for these two acts I take my hat off. Honestly speaking talent scouts and major record labels need to attend these local gigs because a lot of talent remains unrecognised something needs to be done about this.
TASHA ABOUT TO SET THE STAGE ABLAZE.
SNK RIPPING THE DANCE FLOOR APART
I felt at home at this event and met some relevant contacts who will come in handy in the near future. The fact that there still organisers who will throw an open mic show expecting nothing in return is admirable and deserves to be applauded. One thing I have realised is that independent artist can achieve anything if they decided to come together and work cohesively instead of working against each other I hope to hear features when I attend the next gig.
WHO NEEDS A CAR WHEN I HAVE YOU!!!
When I left Falala community hall I felt complete and knew that the gig I was attending the following day would need to be on another level to transform my weekend from good to best.
Before I could say when it was already Sunday morning and after the great day I had with hip-hop fanatics the other day, today I had to put on my dancing shoes because I was going to dance my ass off. When I arrived at After Nine for the launch of the Shisa Nyama the VIP area was being set on the outdoors something no one saw coming. The people doing the decorations did an astounding job and the furniture was just on point.
