Proud Refuge is among the new breed of African artists taking the trap sensibility and elevating it to great effect.
His smooth delivery and evocative vocal tone pair well with the bouncy, energetic production that defines his sound. At only 21 years old, Refuge rise from local rapper with swagger to compelling artist equipped with a message, has been refreshing to watch. As evidenced by his project Mountain Movers Club (2017) and Sold Out (2016), Refuge has plenty of his culture and wisdom to impart, and people are beginning to connect with his candid approach. There’s a sense of transparency that comes through in his music, a refined awareness that can only be gained through experience and honing your craft.
