na ez a menő bringa, nem azok a lúzer hipszterszarok, amik itt pörögni szoktak
Silver X, 24, rap artist and singer
‘My album is a great hit. Small kids sing it, old mamas and papas. I don’t go into politics in my singing – it’s a bit risky. I sang a song about how hard it is when you go for a job and they want to know what tribe you’re from, who your father is. It brought me into conflict with the government. My father died in the war. He was shot by his wife’s brother – they were soldiers. My mother took us to Uganda and I was educated in Kampala. When we achieved independence, I was shocked. There was a four-day concert and I performed at the cultural centre. When they raised the flag, I was shedding tears – for what had happened in the past, but also for joy.’
