Johannesburg - Hip hop artist ProVerb ended a 10-year drought when he walked away with the “hustler of the year” prize at the fourth SA Hip Hop Awards on Wednesday in the Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City.
The rapper says people are surprised that in a decade of producing his well known hip hop music, he has never won an award.
“I have been nominated every time. At one point even in Nigeria, but I have never won an award of any kind in my life until now.
“You know something, I am humbled and grateful the hip hop community has given me the vote of confidence.”
ProVerb said it’s the variety of things he dabbles in that may have set him apart to win ahead of highly popular hip hop artists like Caspar Nyovest, who was nominated in the same category.
