Godessa- Female Hip Hop Group

Godessa is a South African female Hip Hop group. The group started in 2000 in Cape Towns. The group members are from different parts of Cape Flats. They were born in areas of high crime and poverty as well as woman oppression. It was very hard for them to get there music out because they were women and the music industry is dominated by men. However, they have performed internationally in countries like Cuba and the USA. I really like their music because it is positive. The music talks about changing the mentality of the people. They focus on social issues such as HIV, globalization, and poverty.
