in the end, I’d like to say that this list was implemented according to certain criteria, including the number of views and their emergence during the days of the Sudanese revolution and the information provided by artists themselves or available on the internet. I know that I have not and will not be able to include everyone. There are so many great Sudanese Hip Hop musicians and they are very professional and I am sure that in the near future they will be all over T.V channels and Radio stations because of their unique style and how they present hip hop in a new, purely Sudanese style.
I would like to thank all of them for their creativity and I have all the respect for their efforts to enrich Sudanese art
If I had the right to advise them, I will say that you are wonderful and creative people and you only need the world to hear you and I am so sure that you will take the highest positions in this field. My advice is to “market for yourselves”. I am saying that because I had difficulties collecting information about you so you can imagine what the listener may suffer in a time where no one has time and the market suffering from saturation.
