Do you think Namibia Hip Hop is different from other Countries Hip hop?
Not really, I think Namibian hip hop is in the right direction, Even thou we have some locks to break such as favouritism when it comes to events, radio airplays & TV plays… I’ll say most event organizers are some how crooked they put on who they like and not who’s best at the moment
