Castle Lite has cornered the market when it comes to putting on concerts in Johannesburg and making Americans the headliners. In September, the brand aims to pay homage to women who have contributed to making hip hop what it is by putting on a concert called Hip Hop Herstory.

It is billed as “a musical experience which highlights and celebrates the role females have played in the evolution of hip-hop over time” and will take place at Gallagher Estate on September 8.

The event will feature Young MA, the veteran, Roxanne Shante and radio personality, Angela Yee. SAMA winner, Rouge, will also hit the stage as will Nadia Nakai, Gigi Lamayne, Dope St Jude, Moozlie, Fifi Cooper and more.

It will also rightfully see hip hop veteran, Leslie “Lee” Kasumba, assume the role of host with the most alongside Metro FM DJ, Loot Love.

You can expect the event to be “a fully immersive experience tapping into all pillars of hip-hop from dance, fashion all the way to graffiti and obviously rapping.”
