Martial Pa’nucci is a hip-hop artist from the Republic of Congo currently living in exile in Burkina Faso following various threats to his life as a result of his activism through music against the dictatorship in his home. Whilst in Accra for a workshop engagement, we managed to spend some time with him to learn a bit more about himself, his work and his general outlook on the lives of artists in Congo. Speaking to Martial was an education and reminder of the risks various artist across the world have to take to be expressive.
