GIG OF THE WEEK:
Jack Budha, Mamelodi West (Tomorrow)
Hip hop is part of pop culture; people view it as a lifestyle, a way of life. If hip hop makes you want to shake or dance, then be at Jack Budha in Mamelodi West (corner Tsweu and Mashaba streets) tomorrow where the artists
from Kalawa Jazmee will be
setting the stage alight.
Does the name A-B Crazy ring a bell? Well, it should. He is the new hip hop kid from the record label. He writes, raps, produces and sings his own music. He is described by the label as a “rare find” and is known for his album Homecoming.
He will be performing alongside Stoan from Bongo Maffin, who was the first artist to release a rap album in Tswana. Stoan is also
a presenter and actor, but still
puts his music first. He raps about issues facing society and his target market can identify with him because he speaks their language.
They will be joined by a rapper who is well-known for always wearing his trademark baggy clothes. Speedy, another former member of Bongo Maffin, will have you down low on the dance floor. His song Lento, featuring Professor, was nominated for a South African Music Award
• The show runs from 6pm to 2am.Tickets are available at the club before the event for R30 and on the night at R50. For more info call 082 769 5917.
