2016 YOUTH HIP HOP CONFERENCE
Produced by: Samkele Sokhela
The Annual Hip Hop Festival held its conference in Moses Mabhida Stadium on Thursday to give young and upcoming artists a platform where big mainstream artists were giving advices about the music industry.
The event focuses on giving a platform to both unknown and well-known artists. It aims to develop upcoming artists through giving them an opportunity of performing in a big stage and for a big crowd.
Hlubi Radebe, founder of the event, is appreciative of its growth.
“This all began three years ago when we started this event. It started off as a one-day concert and has evolved into a Youth Development program, which is a youth hip hop program. A lot of programmes begin in February going all the way to October where we find talent,” Said Radebe.
Organizers of what has now become one of the highly rated events we see in this country said that the Hip Hop Festival aims to continue opening doors and working hand-in-hand with young artists to contribute to the development of South African music.
