Cassper Nyovest & Stogie T Defend Costa Titch Over Cultural Appropriation
Costa Titch recently released a body of work titled “Made In Africa” Album – his debut. That body of work features verses in and local languages, including isiZulu.
Some fans have questioned Costa Titch’s aesthetics and his infatuation with kasi lingo. Some fans questioned whether he was just embracing the culture or appropriating it. One fan even stated he sounds like the Pitori rapper Focalistic.
The reason for the Focalistic comparison was probably “Yebo Malume (Remix),” Alfakat’s song which featured Costa Titch and Bana Ba Des.
