Afrikaaps Dancehall originates in the ghettos of Cape Town, in the Cape Coloured areas. Afrikaaps is derived from the words Afrikaans and Kaapstaad (Cape Town). The term is used mostly in the Hip Hop Circles but has crossed over to Dancehall as both genres are interlinked. There is a new wave of artists who are set preserve and uphold the subculture – which is heavily influenced by Rastafari teachings and the ghetto livity – by staunchly delivering their songs in Afrikaans patios. Iyatunez is one of the many artists pushing for the subculture and making a mark in the Dancehall fratenity.
