I am researching hiphop in a particular African country, can you help?

Yes, we will probably be able to help you. If you need to get hold of local contacts or want to know more about the situation on the spot, there's a good chance that we know more or that we can get you in touch with someone.

If we have enough time, we'll help you as good as we can. We are doing this site on a non-profit basis, so the only thing we want in return is your promise that in your final product and in your publicity you will make a clear mention of the fact that you got your info from!

In the past we have seen people visiting this site, using the info and then in their article/thesis not mentioning the mere existence of! That's quite disrespectful, and we don't want this to happen again... since again, there's about 5 years of work in the making and maintaining of this website and we don't have a big budget to do promotion, so the only way of getting our site's name out there is through mention in other sources.
