In Pictures: Our favourite moments from eSwatini’s biggest Hip Hop event – Hipnotik Festival

eSwatini’s biggest hip hop festival took place on the 6th of July, attracting a number of people from the kingdom and its neighbouring countries. This year’s edition was the 7th edition and the organisers moved the event to the original venue. This year’s theme was Hip Hop Heaven and it was indeed, with a world class stage and lighting plus the amazing performances from the different artists. The 7th edition saw the return of AKA to the Hipnotik stage after a fallout with the event’s organisers in 2016, performing songs of his latest gold selling album Touch My Blood, with Nasty C also debuting his Strings & Blings album.

Here are our favourite moments from the Hipnotik Festival.
