With each passing day, more women are picking up mics, or their headphones and getting behind the decks.
On the 28th of February 2015, Beat Phreaks are bringing an all-female lineup of DJs and emcees to The Republic.
#TheTakeover is a journey to unearth the best in female talent in an industry that’s mostly male dominated. The target is to increase awareness and followership for these acts as well as encourage other females to step up to the challenge of getting behind the decks or picking up the microphone.
This is to project a positive image of the craft and blur that distinction between male and female DJs or emcees, as well as encourage other females who have secretly developed an interest in those arts to pursue it.
#TheTakeover is creating that necessary platform where female DJs and emcees as well as spoken word artistes can be heard. The upcoming edition of the event features 4 DJs ( DJ MJ, DJ Mitchy, DJ Hannah Mac from the UK, and DJ Pam Bam from Berlin) as well as 3 energetic emcees (Mz Fu, Ms B.redd and Solace) who are poised to deliver exciting performances.
#TheTakeover is slated to be a monthly event. Expect a crazy line-up of females at the Republic Bar and Grill in Osu every last Saturday of the month from 8pm till late.
#TheTakeover is more than music, it’s a statement! Entry is FREE!
