Just recently, Costa Titch was accused of cultural appropriation. The white South African rapper uses kasi lingo in most of his songs. Some peeps feel he shouldn’t be using it because he is not part of the culture.
But several artistes rose in Costa Titch’s Defence. Notable defenders of the rapper and dancer are Stogie T and Cassper Nyovest, who runs Family Tree record label. Costa Titch is one of the dancers of the Family Tree boss.
The latest artiste to rise in Costa Titch’s defence is Maraza. The singer thinks the accusation of cultural appropriation is total nonsense. He differentiated between ethnic culture and Mzansi culture, stating that the latter (which covers Costa Titch’s kasi artistry) is for all.
The support for Maraza’s position was pretty massive, as should be obvious from the replies. You can check out his tweet below.
By the way, Costa Titch has been quiet on the subject. The songster appears focused on his latest album, “Made In Africa,” which DJ Speedsta has described as the best South African album so far this year.
