Rouge Opens Discussion for Peer Support In The South African Music Industry


South African rapper of Congolese descent Deko Barbara-Jessica Wedi known in entertainment circles as Rouge opens a discussion for peer support amongst her colleagues in the South African music industry.

“What do we lose as artists by supporting one another when we drop?” asked the concerned 27-year old rapper. This began a healthy conversation between her and a colleague rapper pH Raw X, who thanked her for supporting his recent body of work Sensei Experience & Ekeyoto and asked her when she’d be dropping her next project so he could return the favor.

I don’t know hey, but I know you get what you give out. With that said, THANK YOU for supporting my project by posting, tweeting and stuff. VERY KEEN to return the favor. WHEN ARE YOU DROPPING?
