Black Vulcanite racking up their wins

Award-winning rap group Black Vulcanite receives acknowledged by BBC as one of the 250 Greatest Songs of All Time and one the group members earns a PhD.

The member in question is no other than the founder of the hip hop group himself, Mark Mushiva AKA Mark Question who posted on his Facebook page on his latest achievement, “Earned my PhD in computer science today. I was a scientist before the Dr. Mushiva title but I must admit that this feels great.”

They say team work makes the dream work, so this just counts as another achievement to mark off their board as the trio have also in 2015 won the award for Best Music Video at the Namibia Annual Music Awards.


In addition, they were recognised by BBC, on the BBC’s list of the ‘250 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs of All Time’. The acknowledgement by the media house took place a few days back for Black Vulcanite 2016 track, ‘How to Rap About Africa’ from their first album Black Colonialist which was released around January 2017.

The track came first place by South African music critic Sabelo Mkhabela and bulldozed its way to be the only Namibian track to make it on the polls. With the songs strong message about Africa, the track managed to outrank South African artist Youngsta CPT and Stogie T and even American rapper Lil Wayne on Mkhabela’s list.
