5 Stories that went viral in SA this week, from a cleaner's incredible weekend glow-up to a classic clap-back
"Hip Hop was the biggest genre in 2014-2017. The kids gave it power, the streets gave it power. At that time, everyone hip hop, supported everything hip hop. Then they created cliques which exist till today. Those cliques started hating on each other and down the drain it went."
Other tweeps joined the convo to share their opinions on Mufasa's reaction. Check out some of their comments below:
"2013 till now @casspernyovest you're still carrying most of them, don't down play yaself Don Billi, kahle kahle when are you dropping another hip pop banger, spirits are low we need that 'ke hip pop dawg' vibe again, dankie mfethu."
"Another factor is that our famous local rappers have egos, especially the one's that are big and have blown up leading to artists not wanting to support and work with each other to take the genre to the world."
"Family Tree was a clique that had you becoming one of Africa’s best while holding back the careers of Tshego, Gemini Major, Ali Keys and Nadia Nakai to name a few. You look like Drake right now. One of the best yes but at the cost of others. Big of you to speak on cliques."
