Music: Kastra at it again

Big-talking Cameroonian rapper Kastra is making headlines again. The artist has released another track titled “F**k 7 industrie“. While we commend young Cameroonian artists for their output despite all the difficulties, it is hard to countenance certain things. The use of some words cannot be tolerated. By using the F word, artists like him do not do themselves or their art any favour. They only further embed the erroneous perception of hip-hop artists as wayward senseless people. Such a perception turns off a potential audience that  they need to expand the reach of their movement. Too bad. Although such words are endemic to hip-hop artists and their posturing, it distracts people who wish to get what they are saying.
