Roc Da Mic is the first ever hip hop/alternative Nigerian music reality show. It seeks to expose the abundance of musical talent that can be found in Nigeria. We intend creating a platform for emerging trends and producing talent that can stand out in the crowd but still, with a blend of originality provide a fresh infusion of sound to the music scene.
Nigerian youths have over the years identified with hip hop, and the genre has grown over the last ten years and is currently one if not the biggest genre loved by Nigerian youths. Hip hop has grown so big that the Nigerian music scene has enjoyed an abundance of hip hop stars who have been able to keep their hip hop fresh and on point while still infusing indigenous sounds, languages etc. Truth be said hip hop rules the music scene in Nigeria, not a day goes by without one new talent or the other been discovered . Its common place to see youths showing off their ability to rap, freestyle, rhyme or spit lyrics, it is therefore sad that there has never been a television show that has targeted this huge demography. Roc da Mic intends to finally put hiphop/alternative Nigerian music out there and create the platform that is needed to push this genre forward.
