Music, Zakifo


by Mahala Scribes / 09.06.2015

Raheem is an OG in the Durban hip hop scene, having been involved in some legendary crews over the years… from Percasette to THOTS and now pushing his solo music as Raheem Kemet – this thought provoking, introspective, deep emcee is gonna bring nothing but the FIYA to Zakifo!

Raheem is one of the most talented vocalists born and bred in Poison City. He’s been in the game for over a decade – winning battles at street level in the Bling Free days, putting out sweet indie albums with Percasette, achieving nationwide success with THOTS and collaborating with many great local artists.

The list of emcees that can sing as powerfully as they can rap is a short one. Let’s see – Wyclef Jean and Lauren Hill… um. Quincy from Big Idea? Well Raheem the magnificent is right up there with the best, whether he’s spitting punchlines, singing sweet harmonies or belting out a rock ‘n roll anthem… he’s always on point.

Big Ra has power on the mic. He demands attention. He writes real lyrics and he’s on the verge of breaking through to the other side. Mark my words.
