Rappers doing their thing in their home language is something that is greatly admired by their fans, but it's not widely-accepted yet.

It's wonderful when musicians embrace their roots and shine with their heritage proudly represented in their work - the way Sho Madjozi and Sjava do it - but many musos and music lovers feel that rapping in 'vernac' will always be overlooked.
