Priddy Ugly has turned to his Twitter account in order to provide words of support to the South African hip hop community.
The celebrity remarked that the musical genre has seen both highs and lows throughout its history, and he is relieved that it is still thriving despite these fluctuations.
Priddy mentioned that even when the genre could not be considered mainstream at the time, they continued to embrace it.
He made the following statement: "Hip Hop, even when you were down and out, we still loved you. Even when it was unfashionable to claim you as our own, we continued to do so. When they made fun of you and pushed you to the side, we were there to support you and lift you up. Those people who have been hiding in the shadows shouldn't be allowed to steal your spotlight.
A good number of his followers endorsed his tweet and expressed their desire for other celebrities to show their support for the genre.
