African Hip Hop Female Artists Unite to Celebrate International Women’s Day

As the world prepared itself to honour women across the globe for International Women’s Day, Africa’s most innovative beer brand, Castle Lite, embarked on a journey of celebrating women across the continent by facilitating the biggest ever female Hip-Hop collaboration from the motherland.

The aim was to showcase the power when women stand together and fortify unity through music, so the brand partnered with an ensemble of five heavyweight female rappers and boldly remixed Hip Hop royalty Queen Latifah’s popular 90’s anthem, U.N.I.T.Y

South Africa, Tanzania and Nigeria were collectively united to do the remix with the likes of Moozlie (South Africa), Gigi Lamayne (South Africa), Rouge (South Africa), Rossa Ree (Tanzania) and Mz Kizz (Nigeria) behind the mic.

The five artists executed a simultaneous livestream of U.N.I.T.Y. this morning on Instagram; a first of its kind for Castle Lite and on the African continent. And speaking ahead of the song performance (livestream), Castle Lite Brand Director Silke Bucker said: “Our ethos as Castle Lite has consistently been about pushing boundaries through innovation, and to commemorate this special day, there was no better way for us to unite women than through what is truly our passion point – music.”
