Middle Finga

~ Person


Spaza isn’t just South Africa’s hip hop, it’s a way of life - truly representing the lives and struggles of the people of South Africa. Middle Finga represents!

Middle Finga a.k.a Rhamncwa was born in the ghettoes of Port Elizabeth, South Africa. He raps in a combination of English and “vernac” (the indigenous languages of South Africa), about his life and the social issues that surround him eKasi (in the hood).

Middle Finga: “For me it’s the best way to communicate with my people. It has made me realise that I’m more than just an MC. I’m a story teller, writer and ghetto spokesperson.”
