Yesterday evening I had an enriching conversation with Buddha Blaze about the Hip Hop scene in Nairobi. I am in awe of Blaze.
He is the founding father of several amazing projects in Nairobi which include East Africa’s first entertainment magazine, PHAT! Magazine, Spark Africa and WAPI (Words And PIctures – a monthly event that takes place every last Saturday of the month at the British council in Nairobi showcasing visual and aural artists)
I present to you his latest initiative, the Nairobi Hip Hop Rapsody.
Nairobi Hip Hop Rapsody is an authentic cultural Hip Hop night with different DJs playing every Tuesday from 8:00pm to midnight at Choices on Baricho Rd. On some nights Hip Hop artists will perform live with a DJ accompanying them. This is the place where there will be a host of hip hop activity, hip hop album launches and more. Below is the exclusive DJ line up for the month of May, starting tonight (Tuesday 7th May) with DJ Zaq.
