In this post I will be telling you about the 3 most successful indegenous rappers in africa 2020, so stay tuned.
In my own opinion I think Sarkodie, Phyno and Olamide are the most successful indegenous rappers in africa, that’s just my own opinion.
but someone may ask, Who is an indegenous rapper?
an indegenous rapper is a hip hop artist who raps mainly in his local language.
And they fact that an artist raps in his local dialect other than English doesn’t mean he is not hip hop or he shouldn’t be classified as a rapper which many people get wrong in this part of the world.
We have super star Latino rappers who are doing really great in the hip hop world.
So let’s get into today’s topic…
