**Hennessy Cypher 2024: Showcasing Africa's Premier Hip-Hop Talent** Set in Lagos, Nigeria, a renowned hub for African music, Hennessy Cypher 2024 features six top rap talents: Maglera Doe Boy, Didi B, Young Lunya, Khaligraph Jones, Ladipoe, and Sarkodie. Each artist brings unique style and lyrical prowess to this dynamic collaboration. Julie Nollet, Hennessy’s Global Chief Marketing Officer, emphasizes that the Cypher is about more than music: it’s about poetry, community, and creativity. South Africa’s Maglera Doe Boy, known for his thought-provoking verses, joins the Cypher following his debut project "Diaspora" and a new single "Let Me Cook" with K.O. Cote d’Ivoire’s Didi B, the first Francophone artist on a Cypher, gained fame for his "rap ivoire" and filled Paris’s Olympia Music Hall this year. His album "Before Olympia" was released in February 2024. Nigeria’s Ladipoe, known for his lyrical excellence, released "Hallelujah" in April 2024. Ghana’s Sarkodie, Africa’s most awarded hip hop artist, dropped his "Championship Mixtape" in May 2024. Tanzania’s Young Lunya, signed by Sony Music Entertainment Africa, and Kenya’s Khaligraph Jones also bring their unique styles to the Cypher. Hennessy has been a significant promoter of hip-hop culture since the genre’s inception, mentioned in over 4,000 tracks. This year’s Cypher, set at a Lagos train station, symbolizes the start of an exciting journey for these rappers. Hennessy plans to playlist the Cypher on TV, digital services, and streaming platforms like Apple Music and Spotify. #HennessyCypher2024 #AfricanHipHop #Lagos #MagleraDoeBoy #DidiB #YoungLunya #KhaligraphJones #Ladipoe #Sarkodie #HipHop #MusicCollaboration #AfricanMusic #Hennessy #RapScene #CognacCulture #GlobalHipHop #MusicStreaming #TrainStationCypher #Afrobeat #MusicInnovation
