Shack Empire is a music group situated in the south of Johannesburg which was formed in the surroundings of a humbling shack which many if not all the members of the empire call their second home. Shack Empire was formed in 2013 originally as a hip-hop movement by a group of independent artists, who wanted to work with each other in order to grow each other.
They venture in all posts in the entertainment business, even though they may have started out as a as hip hop movement, today it has members who tackle other genres such as EDM and Reggae. Their members are Jay Roy, Prolly, Jay Prince, Lwaneezy, M.K colder, RichieTheRapper, rZr, Lexacon, Sleek B, as well as LeboGang. Shack Empire is now a registered company and the empire is currently working on a first compilation which will show listeners what every member is all about.
ICYMI: Nadia Nakai First SA Female Rapper To Perform AT SXSW Fest In Texas
Nadia Nakai to make history as first female rapper to perform at SXSW fest in Texas
This year is shaping up nicely for most of the artists this year who are starting the year off on a strong foot. With her highly anticipated debut album on the way, Nadia Nakai seems to be carving her own way.
She recently announced that she will be performing at the distinguished international music festival, South By South West (SXSW), in March and she will be the first female from South Africa to do so.
Nadia Nakai is one of the few artists who have been closing major deals last year and began trailblazing her own path outside of music. This includes the Castle Lite advertisement as well as her Bragga fashion line with Sportscene. So it is natural for her 2019 to begin on such a great page.
Bragga went onto her social media to announce that she was chosen to be part of the festival.
“Im SOOO excited!!! I’ve been selected as 1 of the South African artist to showcase at @sxsw in Austin Texas in the United States !!!! I can’t wait!!!!!!!!!”
Over the past year or so Bragga took some time out from dropping music and instead has been doing shows and perfecting her set so we are confident that she will absolutely kill the SXSW set. We also hope that Cassper Nyovest and Tshego also makes an appearance in the show to officially put Family Tree on a global scale.
Earlier last year, she took The Dome by storm when she was announced as one of the opening acts at the Castle Lite Unlocks concert. She shared the stage with Chance The Rapper, Frank Casino and Shane Eagle among many others.
Other artists who have performed and completely impressed at the SXSW festival include Kid X, Kwesta and AKA.
