Archie Sopazi is bringing the townships into town by mixing live instruments with his spaza Hip-Hop. It happened once, in a spontaneous Guglethu pub-jam and people loved it.

He’s always wanted to play in town but struggled. Then Sopazi met with Infecting The City Festival and a new jewel was born – rap with real percussive instruments taking place at the festivals hub, the new station forecourt. African music is written on everyone participating. A new form of music, for everyone to enjoy.
