Oh yeah, I had to talk about this one since it caused a lot of disputes as to who deserves to be there and who doesn't. Ladies and gentlemen it is Zim Hottest MC list by MTV Base South.
MTV Base South happens to be the sub-division of MTV Base Africa, catering for Southern Africa (the coveted blue tick on their Twitter account is verification of that). How long it has been running I do not know, I actually learnt of its existence through the now-infamous list.
Looking at the list, it's not all bad but there some "suspicious" names on there, whose presence where the source of debate. Obvious names which were missing from the list include Asaph, Jnr Brown and Sharky. Only six of the people on the list are nominated for the 2016 Zim Hip-Hop Awards, well that may not necessarily mean they aren't hot but when you consider what they have done in 2016, you may be thinking differently...
The list has yours truly feeling indifferent, maybe it will be clear if the criteria used to compile the list is revealed. For an influential account with 30K+ followers this begs a huge question, "IS ZIM HIP-HOP NOT AS VISIBLE AS IT SHOULD BE?"
Hopefully MTV Base South will see Zim Hip-Hop getting some airplay on the MTV Base channel.
