Gina Jeanz makes it into Africa’s biggest Hip-Hop platform

Gina Jeanz is winning at life, the DJ and producer has added yet another milestone to her successful career when she made it on the cover of the magazine and became a featured artist of one of the biggest Hip-Hop Magazines in Africa, Hype Magazine.

This is definitely no small feat, it is not everyday that a Namibian artist makes it on the cover of Hype Magazine, there have been Namibians before but not on Gina Jeanz’s level. This is a huge move for local Hip-hop culture and it will definitely let religious Hip-Hop lovers in Africa give attention to our local Hip-Hop scene.


Gina Jeanz could not hide her excitement on Instagram and shared what a unreal moment it was for her to be on the cover of Hype Magazine. “To be on the cover of SA’s biggest Hip Hop magazine is surreal especially because we as producers are being recognized for all the right reasons. Thank you to Roo for giving us the opportunity to share our truths and narratives,” she shared.

This will not just open doors for Gina Jeanz but hopefully for the Namibian Hip-hop industry as well. This opportunity gives many people a window to focus on the Namibian Hip-Hop culture.

In 2017, Gina Jeanz became the first Namibian to hit the decks at South Africa’s Rocking The Daisies music and lifestyle festival. She has also previously worked with RedBull studios on a musical collaboration.

Congratulations to Gina Jeanz!
