Award-winning rapper Tehn Diamond will make his debut stage appearance in Senegal tomorrow at the biggest hip-hop festival in West Africa called “Festa2H”.
He will represent Zimbabwean hip- hop in West Africa, sharing the stage with musicians from across the globe such as Das EFX from the US, Akro from Belgium and DJ Klash from Switzerland.
The “Happy” singer was elated to be part of such a ground-breaking hip-hop concert.
“I’ve never been to Senegal and I am so excited to be performing at the “Festa 2H”, the biggest hip-hop festival in West Africa, and I’m the only act from Southern Africa performing at the festival,” he said.
“Zimbabwean hip-hop is going places and I’m ecstatic that I am part of this historical movement that has ushered a lot of positive change in our local hip hop industry. I will definitely learn a lot from this hip-hop festival and will make lasting connections that will enable us as the hip-hop family to be put on the global map,” he said.
His dressing has been inspired by West African prints which he is very fond of lately. The rapper said his fashion sense will blend perfectly when he will be performing in Senegal.“I really like the fashion sense of our brothers in West Africa, so a lot of fabrics that I tend to wear come originally from there. My African print pants will make me blend very well at the concert on Friday,” he said.

He has performed with award-winning South African rapper Cassper Nyovest and did done a stellar performances at HIFA with the popular Manifest this year.
