Yanga Chief

Yanga Chief is an award-winning rapper but had to overcome many struggles to become successful – One such struggle was getting accepted as a Xhosa rapper – According to Yanga Chief, Xhosa rappers have it much harder in the music industry than others
Yanga Chief recently bagged the Song of the Year Award for his hit track uTatakho but he knows the taste of struggle. He admitted that it took a long time before people accepted him and started to support him, reports TimesLIVE. According to the muso, Xhosa rappers have it harder in the music industry. He said as much during an interview with SlikourOnLife.

Yanga Chief
Yanga Chief feels that the industry itself isn’t very welcoming for Xhosa rappers. “Just by looking at the mainstream Xhosa rappers, I’ve always felt that there was an unfair bias against Xhosa rappers. Like Motswako has its shine, Soweto rap did its thing, even Durban had its moment – and when you talk about Eastern Cape, it’s like [only] this artist and this artist – that’s it!

But it wasn’t all doom and gloom for the muso. He also talked about meeting AKA, which he wasn’t totally prepared for. “When I met him I was doing an interview for Ventilation and you [Slikour] were like, ‘The interview is tomorrow,’ and I was like, ‘Ja … Imma prepare for it.’ “Then I get a call to say, ‘Yo, this man is here.’ He pulled up and I wasn’t prepared! Although he was very cool – he answered all my questions and I was like, ‘Let me think of the next question.
