‘Activation Party Mtaani’ by Dandora HipHop City
Being a young, upcoming artist in Kenya can seem like an extreme sport, especially if you’re from an underprivileged background and Dandora Hiphop city ‘School of Rhyme’ gets it.
There are no clear paths to follow, coupled with:
- Limited sources of funding to tap into
- A lot of trial and error due to scarce information or resources available to artists
- The cut-throat nature of the creative industry in Kenya
You may have the passion and drive but it takes learning from seasoned industry players to fully hone your skills and shape your potential before eventually having a successful career.
Here’s where Dandora Hiphop city ‘School of Rhyme’ comes in.
Some of Dandora HipHop City’s famous alumni include: Juliani, Ukoo Flani Mau Mau & Roba Kshaka.
