Rap musician Wol Riak, who goes by the name Krown, also landed in trouble after arriving in Australia as a teen.
For him, it was a promising career as a hip-hop artist that gave him a much-needed diversion.
“It saved me,” the 21-year-old says. “I was going on a route where there was no limit … where either you die or your life is messed up. Music for me just came and said you’re actually worth it, you’re not worth going to jail, you’re not worth dying.”
“For me, the message for the Sudanese is: think about the future for us and if you got a voice and you got a power, use it – use it in a positive way.”
Hey guys! Last Friday I performed at HQ supporting EMCEE KERSER alongside Nathan Eagercbs, Bloop and Prospeks. Here's some footage we captured of the night. More to come!!! :) :) :)
