Spaza is our own version of Hip-hop in Cape Town. The game of the vernacular style start way back in the early 90’s. Nowadays, everywhere you go around the streets of Cape town there is an element or influence of the expression. Some ssay Hip-hop is dead but here it is growing extensively. evidently to that fact of growth some of the pioneers and newly MC’s have travelled internationally…
