M.anifest to lecture about African Hip Hop at St. Lawrence University

Hot off his performances in South America, Ghanaian artist M.anifest is set for an entirely different setting this week. He has landed in Canton, New York today to deliver a series of talks/lectures on the African Hip Hop scene.

He will be the guest of St. Lawrence University in upstate New York for a series organized by the arts collaborative and spearheaded by Professor Madeleine Wong.

M.anifest will share his thoughts on his musical influences, rap culture in Ghana and the continent as well as his mixed use of language – pidgin, English and twi-to a captive St. Lawrence audience.

He will visit classes and will finally round up his engagement with a performance.

Check out his schedule and other information about the program at the links below.
