Malcom Mufunde and Raykaz Set the Dodger Dome Ablaze at Moto Republik

To say they shut down the dome is an inch overstretched. Fact however remains, Malcom Mufunde and Raykaz lived up to the cultic energy that has built up in the last year or two.

The 27th of April 28, 2024 had many events happening across town and beyond. That is the mercury of urban culture. Moto Republik on this day echoed croons of rap music as 16 MCs battled in the Dodger Dome. On what could have been their day, it may seem unfortunate that these youngsters had just to warm the stage as the day’s duty.

Malcom Mufunde got on stage to a spirited crowd which gave the young man a debut to remember. His lyrical prowess has become his trademark but this year seems to be poised for more unmasking and unpacking the sophistication behind a revered brand despite its introvert nature. 

Raykaz took to stage for the second appearance at Moto Republik. The juxtaposition of having Raykaz and Malcom on the same stage is a culmination of the lyrical rap scene. Of course, it has been done before and perhaps better but what cannot be taken away is the fact that these youngsters are coming at everything with buoyancy.

The rap league which has been an investment in the culture for so long lives another day to actually realize the potential there, untapped.
