I Rap to the heartbeat of those who spoke (up) before me…

Jun 16, 2012

Young people gathered to celebrate and commemorate the titans of the 1976 uprising through song and dance when the new youth day song produced by local artists in conjunction with SABC1 Mzansi Fo Sho was released during the youth month campaign.

In an effort to encapsulate the meaning of youth month, commemorate the 1976 student uprising and spark new hope in young South Africans SABC1 Mzansi Fo Sho joined up with local artists to produce the creative “All I Can Be” hip hop track. The collaboration is meant to “inspire and encourage the modern day youth to face their challenges head-on with the view to overcoming them – in the spirit of the youth of 1976.

The collective artists dubbed “June 16 All Stars” consisted of the cream of Mzansi’s hip hop artists including Amu, Pro, Mr Selwyn, Driemanskap, Nthabiseng, Kabomo, Flabba, TP, and Khanyi & Primus.

The shooting of a video which took place in the Soweto school nearby Vilakazi Street where it all began continued the theme of the 76 Uprisings, also emphasised by the slogan of the innovative youth campaign “I Rap to the Heartbeat of those Who Spoke (up) before Me.”

Sheer Publishing proud to announce composer’s Mr. Selwyn, Flabba, and Kabomo, who lend their voices to the fitting tribute of inspiration.
