Hip Hop Culture Alive And Well In Botswana

Hip Hop music has a large following in Botswana, according to the founders of The Hip Hop Movement Prince 'DJ Fhinzo' Pheaga, Mpho Mosweu and their partner, Jay Malunga.

The trio together with their friends have decided to set up a music caf where Hip Hop followers would relax and listen to 'hard to find' CDs and videos from way back in the 80s from their music archives.

The caf, which opens next month, will be open to everybody including youngsters because it will only promote 'clean music'. It will have anything from classic tapes to today's top CDs and music fanatics who cannot afford to buy a copy, especially mix-tapes, will have an opportunity to listen to their favourite artists at a reasonable price.
"Parents need not fret because all the explicit language and pictures will be edited out; so the place will be very user-friendly for children. Generally, we will be careful of what we expose to our clientele', Pheaga said.
