Castle Lite Presents…Hip Hop HERSTORY
4 September 2018
“And since we all came from a woman
Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman
I wonder why we take from our women
Why we rape our women, do we hate our women?
I think it’s time to kill for our women
Time to heal our women, be real to our women
And if we don’t we’ll have a race of babies
That will hate the ladies, that make the babies
And since a man can’t make one
He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one”
The world is changing with more voices demanding equality and better representation of all women in movies, TV, advertising and corporate but the most popular music genre in the world is yet to see this change manifest. Hip Hop has always spoken out against social injustices, oppression, and inequality, however, this has not been entirely extended to the females who have contributed immensely to the genre. The role women have played in the evolution of hip-hop seems to go unnoticed. Castle Lite is here to set the record straight and highlight their contribution at the Castle Lite Hip Hop Herstory concert – a first all-female Hip-Hop line up in Africa.
Castle Lite presents hip-hop Herstory, a musical experience which highlights and celebrates the role females have played in the evolution of hip-hop over time. The concert will be a fully immersive experience tapping into all pillars of hip-hop from dance, fashion all the way to graffiti and obviously rapping.
Hip-hop Herstory is more than a concert, it is a movement for all hip hop heads to lend their voice in recognizing female rappers and artists who have made an incredible mark in the industry. The campaign will allow open discussions across multiple media platforms within the hip-hop fraternity and tell the story of women in hip hop through their own lens.
The concert will see South Africa’s leading lady in hip-hop Loot Love co-present with Lee Kasumba of Uganda. Other hip-hop queens who will grace the stage are boss lady Bragga-Nadia Nakai, Dololo hitmaker Rouge, Award-winning Gigi Lamayne, Rapper and television presenter Moozlie, 2016 SAHHAs Honorary Award recipients Godessa, Okzharp & Manthe Ribane, South Africa’s rising hip-hop star Dope Saint Jude, Award-winning artist and TV personality Fifi Cooper, Relo of Mzansi’s hip-hop crew Skwatta Kamp and Ayanda MVP.
