AJ’s Arts Cafe in Blantyre is set to host its inaugural rap battle dubbed ‘Whose got the ‘sawce’.
Every Friday afternoons from 2pm, one winner will walk away with K10 000, 2 sessions free photoshoot.
The second place winner will get consolation prize of a session free photoshoot.
Entry into the Cafe is free.
The rap battles will be hosted by Soul Amp Entertainment Rapper Gingy.
Holding it down every Friday is DJ Africa on the desks.
Ambokile Salimu Jr, son to Lawyer Ambokile Salimu who owns the place says the idea was sparked from trying to get battles rappers to come to one place and showcase.
Ambokile Salimu Jr, a Rapper himself using the moniker Ambo AJ says they want to bring ‘Exposure’.
Ambo AJ says the epitomy of the battle will be a contest of the winner squaring of with a guest rapper and pocketing an extra K1 5000 I think cash aside from the actually prizes.
He says the guest rappers will be a ‘Surprise’.
‘Winner gets to battle that guy. If he wins, 15k extra’ he says.
The Cafe is known to come up with creative themes aimed at exposing talent.
Their last idea was a dance off.
