About Spyda..
‘I am Spyda Mc, my purpose is to express emotions, drawing a picture from which the world can see and groom better citizens. One of my key roles is to organise Ghetto to Ghetto Tours and our annual Hip Hop & Boxing event Return of the Champions. These grassroots programs include the Cypher Revolution Series which aims to give ghetto youth the confidence and platform to use their to voices to contribute to the solutions they desire to see in society.

This work has developed my awareness of self and transformed me into a respected leader in my community. It has taught me that life has an independent cycle that takes time to learn. It has also taught me how to grow from challenges and celebrate accomplishments, using these moments to inspire me to continue building. I see a change in the attitude of the community towards the youth, this is brought about by the positive influence our work has and the focus on bridging the gap between ages.

The regular art and music events we organise have increased our visibility and contributed to peace and order by providing a positive focus for youth. Our collective vision is to create stable, long-term youth centres that continue to build positively. This will go along way in building respect in our communities and reducing conflict caused by tribal differences, segregation, classism, colour and behaviour.

I envision my near future activities to be continuing to remix the Art of Hip Hop and Boxing, building the Cypher Sessions into Hip Hop Schools of Thought and embarking on promoting foundational Agriculture for continuous sustainability and controlling rural to urban migration.’ Spyda MC

“Many souls of our young men throughout the world are being sold for money, they fail to fulfil their own dreams. What they really love to live on they forgo it for money issues. Our generation try to copy things that are not of the people of the continent…

Why Diversity is important to an organisation
(africansbuildingafrica.com by Zvirevo Chisadza)

Adding a stone to the earth increases physicality while adding oxygen increases air quality. While oxygen might look more valuable than a stone, it however contributes to a lesser earth physicality. Therefore both irreplaceably contribute to the earth structure.

Similarly, diversity is the cognitive blending of different backgrounds, experiences and perspectives within a team to improve company overall efficiency. As all pieces have respective roles to play in a chess game, so is the diversity phenomenon. Diversity is a valuable facet that encourages employee development, market extension, company reputation and economic effectiveness.

In itself, diversity begets development and nurturing of leadership among employees. As a social workplace environment, it encourages employee engagement, empowerment and authenticity. Besides attracting best employees, and fostering mutual respect, diversity encourages workplace innovation and creativity through talent co-existence. It encourages better discussions and decisions leading to greater outcomes that satisfy a greater audience. This also leads to improved communication and information sharing within an organisation. Through the schedule advantage of diversity, continuous work can be fulfilled throughout the year through cooperation of experts of various beliefs.

New markets especially in foreign countries can be established through diversity. Organisational diversity attracts and ties customers for a continued business environment through better understanding of the outside world and customer representation. Through recognition of strength of individuality and combination of differences, an increased exposure in achieved.

Diversity is an important competitive advantage to outpace competitors through customer satisfaction. Therefore, diversity is the holy grail of increased productivity and profitability through opening up new business opportunities.
