    I would appreciate if someone can explain what exactly is Africa about this AWARD when all the AWARD are Awarded to Hiphop stars. Is Hiphop Africa? For the love of money, fame and power we keep destroying our legacy and identity by Embracing western culture and not just Embracing it but ignoring our. I will appreciate if I could get more light.
