Hip Hop artists deliver the news using beats and poetry

Jul 23, 2014, 01:03 PM

Two Ugandan hip hop artists have taken a fresh approach to delivering the news, blending beats and poetry in a show called NewzBeat.

They've broadcast more than 20 episodes of their rap news show on a local Television station, in both English and Luganda, covering everything from local to national and international stories.

The two say they are now in the process of setting up a rap newsroom.

The BBC's Patience Atuhaire caught up with them in Kampala.
