You may or may not have heard about Lal Daggy. Doesn’t matter because either way, you’ll be hearing a lot about him.
The rapper is currently on a media tour that has seen him camp at pretty much all major media outlets as he speaks of his music, plans and aspirations.
Some background. Lal Daggy is not like other rappers. He is special in that he is deaf.
This is not someone you encounter everyday, and I can only imagine the obstacles he has encountered. The chap is selling the story of determination and talent. His entry into the fray is turning tables upside down, because traditionally a rapper should be someone capable of spitting mad rhymes, sometimes on short notice. For this you need to be able to hear… or so we’ve always thought.
Lal Daggy is already causing serious problems in the rap circles as he has vowed to provide alternative forms of rap as opposed to the regular crap talk we’re used to. He wants to make rap great again by injecting sense and meaning in a genre flooded with senselessness and arrogance.
Lal Daggy has already toured most of the country staging shows, and now he has grabbed the attention of none other than the head of state. He recently had an encounter with President Uhuru Kenyatta, and got an invite to State House.
The rapper is also looking outside Kenyan borders. He has staged several shows abroad, with his latest ones being held in the South African cities of Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban and Cape Town.
