Hip Hop Pantsula, also known as HHP, is a lyricist and rapper of epic proportions. In his work, the love that this artist has for funk, soul, pop and traditional African music comes through. Having grown up in a small town in the North West province, HHP spent many years working tirelessly at his solo career, and from about 2004, he started winning different prizes, expanding his fan base beyond South Africa’s borders. In 2008, he earned two accolades at the SAMA for best male solo artist and for best rap album, and has gone on to win countless other South Africa music awards. HHP has shared the stage with international artists such as Snoop Dogg, Jamie Cullum and Angelique Kidjo. Last year he released his most epic album MotswAfrika.
