Published 4 years ago by

We constantly find gems in the rough and this week we present to you multi-talented rapper Dibi. Dibi is an up and coming musician who was born and bred in Port Elizabeth and based in Johannesburg. 

He primarily makes hip hop music with a distinct witty and lyrical heavy edge. In fact, his music is described as “consisting of acute attention to lyricism” and any style of rap which is trendy and contemporary.

Dibi has been making music for a young minute now and for the past year or so, has been on a mission to get his name on the lips of many.  He was crowned the winner of #DAMNKendrickBattle, a competition which is hosted by UMG alongside Trace Urban and YFM. The young rapper had to prove his salt and battle 7 other rappers and ultimately took the R5000 prize.  

He has also entered several competitions such as Emtee’s Rap4Me contest, in order to get his name recognized. In a bid to share his talent with the masses, he began campaign titled #FreestyleFriday. It’s a campaign which sees him post a video on his social media profiles as well as the internet every Friday, in which he does a cover over popular songs. He has covered everything from Distruction Boyz’s Omunye to Nadia Nakai’s Naa Mean. 

His most successful song to date is titled Golide and it was released in 2017. Produced by Stickx, Golide managed to reach number 5 on the YFM’s Hot 99 Hip Hop Chart.  He followed Golide up with Thugs & Love featuring Maftown rapper, Coopay Sounds.  He also recently dropped a Visual Experience titled Letters which see him pen thought provoking and introspective verses. 

His latest release, Squad, follows the same quality of lyricism that we have expected from the young rapper. He raps over a LonzTooStoned produced beat which has a Trap influenced edge to it. Dibi flexes amazing storytelling abilities while keeping impressive energy and pace on the song. Plus his flow is incredibly smooth. Don’t sleep on Dibi!
