Mzansi rapper Costa Titch has been a vital topic in South African music, specially following the release of his “Made In Africa” album.
In that body of work which features some fine voices in South African music, Costa Titch easily code switches. And because he raps in kasi lingo, some have accused him of appropriating Black culture.
The cultural appropriation topic has spawned an interesting debate in South Africa, with several musos weighing in. Family Tree CEO, Cassper Nyovest, and the notable lyricist Stogie T are among the musos who had weighed in on the issue so far.
Interestingly, both of them defended Costa Titch. Maraza, another notable Mzansi MC, did the same. Not to be left out, Shane Eagle, who recently caused a stir online by sharing a picture of his member, has released his rand on the subject as well.
He spoke on the cultural appropriation controversy in a recent sit-down with DJ Sabby. What he said in the interview will surely interest you. So go ahead and watch the clip below.
