Flash Ikumkani has recently been picked by Howard University in the USA for his content to be studied as a topic of how Hip Hop affects Africa socially and the impact of his commentary using his home language to rap.

Hlumile Mangoloti (born 25 March 1998), professionally known as Flash Ikumkani, is a South African rapper and songwriter from Peelton, Qonce (King William’s Town) in the Eastern Cape, where he was born and raised.
Flash Ikumkani is a Hip Hop artist known for his unique vocals.
Among this, he is also known for his great ability to rap in his home language, isiXhosa, while mixing in English. Making the music that Flash makes an extension of his identity as a Xhosa man but also as a well-learned rapper. There is something distinctly fresh about Flash.
He is effectively lending his voice to making his native tongue cool. And this is not the watered-down version of his language, but it is the raw and authentic version that is not highlighted in the mainstream.
