Wax Lyrical hosted by critically acclaimed rapper; Loose Kaynon, is back and better than ever.
On hiatus since 2013, Wax Lyrical is a hip-hop centric freestyle event on theNigerian Hip-Hop scene and a platform aimed at celebrating and promoting Hip Hop through a hybrid of local and pop- culture.
Wax Lyrical features unrehearsed rap battles from amateur, established or veteran word smiths, over popular hip-hop beats, in front of an unbiased and unforgiving crowd of hip-hop enthusiasts.
Apart from entertaining and further promoting the hip-hop industry (music, fashion, graffiti etc.), the main goal of the show is to be “the” stage that discovers rookies who go on to become rap-gods.
A few of the artistes who have gone on to become formidable rap forces were once amateurs on the Wax Lyrical floor; Phenom, Lil Kesh, Base One andOlamide to mention a few.
The official re-launch edition takes place on Monday, July 18, 2016 at Fuze Sport Bar – 46, Saka Tinubu, Victoria Island, Lagos and will be headlined by Africa’s top rap group; Show Dem Camp.
The event starts at 7pm and is open to hip-hop fans and rap lovers.
