Rappers put Zim on map

German-based Zimbabwean rappers, Ruddish and Herbert Benyera, better known as Culprit and Metaphysics, have put their homeland on the world map with two hit songs ‘Evacuate the Dance Floor’ and ‘The Night’.

Their songs have reached the top 10 in the US and the top 5 in the German I-Tunes charts.
