THE new Its Bigger Than Hip-hop Show staged at the newly-renovated Kudu Bar at Hartsfield grounds on Friday night, lived up to its billing.
The event featured performances from a number of local upcoming artistes in the hip-hop industry, which included rappers, dancers and poets.
The show which started at around 7:30pm, saw brilliant performances from artistes such as Young Stan, Mzoe7, War-Fresh, Dab, Ice, KLAP, POY and Masimba.
Female rapper Michelle Chikerema (22), also known as Hotness, put up an excellent performance and left revellers asking for more. The show saw first-time performers such as young Thabani Ndlovu, also known as Hottie Thabbz, getting a chance to showcase his talent in front of an appreciative crowd.
“I am so happy that I performed tonight though I was a bit nervous and did not know how the crowd would respond to my music, but since it was the first time, I am proud of myself and I will keep working hard from this performance,” Hottie Thabbz said.
Nicholas “POY” Muchinguri, the event organiser, thanked everyone who came for the show.
“I thank and respect all who made it tonight, artistes and fans! We thank you for your support. We promise to keep the show going on and every Friday at the same venue,” POY said.
The show has provided upcoming artistes a platform to showcase their talents since Bulawayo has no radio station. It is difficult for local artistes to get their music played on radio in Harare.
