Milano Lifestyle revives hip-hop culture in Alex

Milano Lifestyle invites all hip-hop lovers to come and experience the hip-hop culture on May 4.

The Milano Lifestyle in Alexandra will host the Up in the North ‘Straata Edition’ event on May 4 which is set to be the celebration of hip hop culture, music arts and lifestyle.

Event organiser Nhlanhla Ntuli said the inspiration for the event is to bring back the culture of hip-hop because he sees a decline in hip-hop culture in the township while a lot of hip-hop creatives surrounds him.

“Hip-hop culture has long been a powerful force in expressing social issues and showcasing artistic talent. Hip-hop has permeated various aspects, from graffiti-influenced writing styles to fashion trends and street art.

“We have no competitors in our surroundings and we are aiming to keep the spirit of hip hop alive and make it grow so that we can inspire other up-and-coming artists to come out of their comfort zone so that they can make money out of this business venture.”
