ProVerb revealed that HHP was the one responsible for the rapper-turned-TV presenter to take the leap and create rap verses in other languages. ProVerb even went as far as to include Afrikaans. This was totally out of the ordinary within the SA hip-hop scene and will surely make fans remember Pro for doing that.
ProVerb has been in the rap scene for over a decade now making his name a household name. His ability to rap in a variety of languages has been the impressive skill that has lead him to be a big name in Mzansi.
Briefly.co.za learnt that sharing with fans on Twitter on Thursday night, Pro admitted that if it was not for HHP, he could have possibly sat of his amazing and unique skills for a long time.
Pro went on to say that strangely enough, it was his friend Jabba’s, the late legend, idea in the beginning. Jabba was persistent in telling Pro to use that Kimberley multilinguistic aspect to his advantage. Pro was hesitant as he was not quite sure how it would be received or even understood.
His song, Love of My Lewe, and also the verse he did when he feature Leloko La Lekoko, are still today one of the many hits.
Going back in time, the rapper uncovered some of the books he used to jot down his now-legendary rhymes. In a video he created on YouTube, he was able to share with fans his journey of rap and the process of writing.
The scribbles that he found include his ideas and concepts which ultimately lead to him making his debut album, The Book of ProVerb 2005. There are also some pieces that did not make the cut, including jingles and feature verses that were jotted down around that time.
