THE SESSION
This week's rap activity boasted four lethal rap acts; Dizmo, Muzak, Soul Ties and Eresh fought it out fiercely on the microphone. Breaking the ice was Dizmo who was touching the issues of influx here and there and mixed it well with conscious rap. Muzak was exposing the harshness of the past regime, how they treated the Blackman, he was strong on emphasizing that what happened will never happen again. Soul Ties were a battle duo, with nothing too specific in their content. However the last act pointed out the significance of rapping in indigenous languages and pleaded with other rappers to discard the use of English.

Nevertheless, the winner of this weeks rap activity was Eresh with his distinct poetic like style of rapping, he let loose his antics behind the microphone and that worked well for him.
