The previous week I was invited to an event in Atteridgeville (Pretoria) called Hood Hop, where aspiring hip hop musicians come in to perform their own music , in order to get exposure, promotion and awareness around Atteridgeville every Friday of month end, it has been around for almost 15 years now and it has been passed on from generation to generation.
This event is the best because this where the culture of hip hop is expressed, not just musically, but also in clothes, art, and poetry. The two founders of this event, just look over the success of their initiative, where they have a whole of team young individuals, who are responsible for the overall planning and execution of this event.
Spending my Friday night there was so interesting, I had so much fun, it was very hard to leave, because of the talent that was on stage, the vibe was just fun and the crowd was so accommodating, friendly and responsible.
I cant wait for the next Hood Hop at the end of the month.
