ARTIST Rushay Booysen, who has returned from this year's "hip hop as social and political empowerment" symposium in Hanover, Germany, used the platform to educate peers about activism displayed by artists, specifically the youth, from the Eastern Cape.
The 35-year-old delivered a presentation with 30 international artists.
"Besides being honoured to represent my country, I was honoured to speak about the amazing work done through hip hop artists in Eastern Cape. Hip hop is the voice of the youth. In my travels across the world there's a common connecting point and it's driven through this mouthpiece called hip hop," Booysen said.
