He also said that artists from the city have dominated radio charts and the recently hosted ZIMHIPHOP AWARDS saw Bulawayo artists and practitioners taking the bulk of the awards and that.
Mc Tytoh added that Hip hop in Bulawayo is a culture with potential to anchor the City’s creative economy as well as facilitate positive social change.
Participants will have an opportunity to interact with industry captains and a selected panel in order to get a clear picture on issues in the industry and also to learn from success stories of other invited guests who have been in the industry for a lengthy period.
