The South African Hip Hop Museum opened sometime last year (2019) to great purrs of pleasure from the hip hop community in the Rainbow Nation.

At the time of the museum’s opening, the curators had indicated their pleasure in the museum, stating that they can’ wait to see kids and other curious people throng the place to learn about South Africa hip hop history.

The pleasure in the creation of the museum suffered a temporary setback when criminals broke in recently and vandalized the place as well as stole of the museum’s assets.

Slikour Onlife reported the news of the break in, and Rashid Kay, one of the figures behind the museum, confirmed it, stating that a setback is not failure and that criminals will get what they deserve.
