Costa Titch’s new kid in hip-hop block landed in hot water after being accused of cultural appropriation.

Costa, which recently released its debut album “Made In Africa,” is a hot topic in the hip-hop community and has acquired the features of Cassper Nyovest, AKA, Riky Rick and Youngsta CPT.

His star seems to be rising as DJ Speedsta praises his debut album as the best hip-hop of the year. However, many have been cautious of his persona and asked if he is a cultural vulture.

When the first concerns surfaced, Stogie T and Cassper defended him in a “By Any Means” post. “I’m not a fan of Costa Titch, but I trust me. No one would say he stole the culture. You mahfahkahs jack the actual song from the artist without telling people shit Let you get angry with the young boy to live his dream. No! I’m not for that! “

And the “Friday Night” rapper says: As long as conversation is important, I don’t think Costa should be the face of cultural appropriation.

“He is a young child who loves our culture and enjoys it. Politics kills things before things start. Make a young man shine.”

A video emerged where Costa talks about his music and why he uses Vernac in his writing process.

He says he gave his friends lyrics to translate for him. When his friend was having a conversation in front of him in Zulu, he understood what he was saying, but he didn’t study the language or grow up with him.

He also admitted that he wrote the song using Google Translate.

Costa said he was confused by local artists who did not use Vernac in their music.

“There are a lot of African artists I’m friends with who can speak Zulu, Swazi, all of these fluently, but they rap in English,” he said.

He pointed out that in order to succeed in South Africa, we must appeal to the masses.

Tweepe did not kindly respond to his comments and used this interview as evidence that he was a cultural vulture.
