Eavesdrop

Eavesdrop is a social activist, hip hop lyricist and performer from Parkwood, a Cape Flats township located in Cape Town, South Africa. She has been recording and performing her work, as a solo artist, since 2002. Her approach to her art has allowed her to enter into extended disciplines such as theatre performance, script writing/workshopping, and social activism. She uses Hip Hop to highlight the daily struggles of her community who face injustice, inequality, political and cultural apathy, among many other issues. Her inspiration comes from the trials and tribulations of the people among whom she lives and from her spiritual perspective about life in general. Rhyming is her process of awakening to take action for freedom and upliftment.
