Flash Marley – Madre of Togo – The Hip Hop African

Flash Marley is a feminine Togolese artist that embodies energy and character by her music. The title of considered one of her hit singles launched in 2020 known as “SITSOPE”. The title of this track interprets to a spot of refuge or assist. Within the music video for this track, her voice reveals ardour and energy. The video principally incorporates single photographs of her, which declare the viewers full consideration and captivates them by the message she is making an attempt to convey. In a single verse, Marley raps;

“It’s a must to undergo the steps to get to the highest 

We needed to be judged 

We needed to apply ourselves 

We needed to pay for all our desires with out holding again”.

I interpreted this a part of the track as she needed to work tougher to show herself as a result of she is a feminine rapper in a male dominated discipline. Feminine rappers must go the additional mile so as to be acknowledged, acknowledged, and regarded status. That is very obvious, particularly in Togo contemplating the truth that there are only a few widely-known feminine rappers. She additionally refers to herself as “madre” all through the track, signifying her function as a dominant female-figure to be regarded as much as and revered. One other verse that stood out to me was;

“I converse in a different way, I make music in a different way 

for my niggas, I’m current

I converse in a different way, I make music in a different way 

for my sisters, I’m current.”

From this, she is making a degree to assert that she isn’t like the remaining and her artwork is exclusive. She additionally emphasizes that she makes music for her individuals; her black listeners and her feminine listeners. 

“Music just isn’t intercourse” is probably probably the most important traces on this explicit track. As a result of so many feminine rappers are over-sexualized and inspired to indicate off their our bodies/rap about sexual issues, Flash Marley made a degree to attract the road between music and intercourse. She as a substitute raps about empowerment and overcoming obstacles. Within the music video for this track, she is absolutely clothed which matches to indicate that quite than the eye being on her physique, it’s on the facility of her phrases. I feel this makes her stand out from the everyday feminine rapping model which is tremendous empowering.
