Sprigga Mek to Asia TOPA with Rebel Musik

His unique music style and passionate advocacy on West Papua has brought him international exposure he never asked for.

Sprigga Mek is part of the collaboration Rebel Musik to perform in an exclusive show at Asia TOPA’s XO state on February 24.

It will be his first appearance in this prestigious Melbourne festival, being his fourth international gig to date.

His other gigs were in Brisbane, Bangkok and Vanuatu.

Coming from the underground Hip Hop movement in PNG, Sprigga says this opportunity means a lot in terms of Hip Hop.

He will be departing next week along with the rest of the team made up of artists from PNG and West Papua.

“It will be an honour to be among the legends and tour with them. I grew up listening to them and having this opportunity is huge,” he said.

The collaboration includes members of Grrilla Step, Twin Tribe, Paluai Sook Sook, Drum Drum and Rize of the Morning Star.
