Synik discusses coming up at Poetry Slams, Performing with A Band, His name and more!


Hip Hop MCs are slowly introducing a band with instruments at their live shows and the Zimbabwean industry is no exception. Zim's dopest MC's like Outspoken been doing shows with a live band for ages now.
Monday 18th April Synik, Upmost and the Hip Hop band called Monkey Nuts will be bringing Rhythm and Poetry to life in the Sunshine City, 328 herbert chitepo avenue at Alliance Francaise to be exact!

The Monkey Nuts, a hip hop band complete with MCs have previously performed at Mashoko (The Mannenburg) and the Book Cafe. Upmost is also one of Zimbabwe's dopest MCs and is half of the ill hip hop group Dielectric Blue with Outspoken.

Born and bred in the greedy streets of Harare, Synik (Gerald Mugweni) fell in love with hip hop growing up. As a youth he had a dream of making it big time as a musician. Graduated from University of Zimbabwe with a Bachelors degree in Accounting. He is slowly building a strong following at events like poetry slams, acoustic nights, theatrical poetry production and more!
I spit conscious rap, that commercial/ gangsta rap and that love rap all in one. I love music and I feel blessed that I have a strong voice that educates and entertains at the same time. My following has largely been developed from performances at Mashoko, the circle, chimoto poetry slams (alliance francaise), acoustic nights (zimbabwe german society), and the theatrical poetry production 'prisms' as part of poetic cause.
Synik also explains what his name means and why he chose rap
The name Synik is a moniker picked up when i was young which was reflective of my view of the world. I've since grown and try to drop positive raps, using music to help uplift people. Come in your numbers at our hip hop event at Alliance Francais
