SAUTI ZA MABINTI – FEMME-NICITY SHE SPEAKS!!!
Femme-nicity is an event that focuses on redefining the woman’s role in the Hip-hop culture. This event aims at creating unity within women in Hip-hop by providing a platform to showcase their talent be it poetry, dj-ing , fashion ,dance ,rap skills and entertainment business. Female hip-hop focuses on promoting women’s importance ,which in turn ,demands equal treatment for women to support each other. The event will make sure our women in Hip-hop have a strong sense of self identity and empowerment. It will help develop and provide women with positive roles that are present and represented within the Hip-hop industry. In other countries, female rappers, poets made their mark and gained considerable recognition but in East Africa especially Kenya, our women lack the support they require hence they neglect their talent. Femme-nicity brings together all the ladies to share the love for Hip-hop and the element each represents. It is time to stand up, take notice and give props to the women who have made their mark on Hip-hop culture.
Activities of the day include: cypher, poetry, spoken word, fashion, breakdance,Neo soul and Hip-hop. There will be a mentor talking to the ladies before the performances. Her name is Edna Ratemo.
