The competition will start on the 5th of December this year and it will feature 8 hoods, he revealed this in an interview with Sunbuzz. Each hood will be represented by 10 of its best rappers. Zakwe did not say which hoods will be featured in the competition but they are most likely from KZN, especially the Mashu township where the rapper comes from.
The competition will last for 7 weeks. The winning hood will walk away with a grand prize of R25 000 and the runners up will pocket R10 000.
Zakwe remains one of few mainstream rappers who have held on to Kasi rap despite the growing trend of more American influenced urban Mzansi rap.
Despite the limited attention given to Kasi rap he has been able to stay at the top of the industry and is still one of the industry's hottest rappers. The legendary rapper has had numerous projects aimed at promoting Kasi including his "KZN lockdown cypher" in which he shared his platform with underground rappers from all over KZN.
