SWAZI RAPPERS & SA STARS IMPRESS AT SWAZILAND’S BIGGEST HIP-HOP FESTIVAL

by adminDecember 7, 2016

Swaziland’s biggest hip-hop gathering celebrated its fifth anniversary on Saturday

But the 2016 Hipnotik Festival was far from perfect. The festival was already marred by drama going in. AKA was dropped from the lineup last week in the aftermath of a tweet threatening to pull out if his logo wasn’t added to the festival flyer.

The organisers didn’t take kindly to Super Mega’s demands and subsequently announced Burna Boy as a replacement headliner. The Nigerian superstar never showed up.

Saturday was downright frustrating from the jump. The one-day concert was slated to start at 2pm. Hours went by and fans were forced to stand outside the venue without being told what the hold was.

And then finally, at around 8pm performances started.

Some sets were cut short as a result of the delay. Also, the sound could have been tuned better, especially for early performances.

But through the mishaps, the night saw some great performances. Mostly from South African artists, though a few local acts showed they could hold their own.
