Join us at White Bay Power Station for a trans-continental performance of genre-pushing rap at Art After Dark.

Brooklyn-based rapper and Queer icon Cakes Da Killa is notorious for his witty flow and unapologetic delivery. He wears his queer identity with pride; delivering electric, powerful performances set to high energy club beats with a 90’s grit. Having worked with LSDXOXO, DJ Shiftee, and legendary house DJ Honey Dijon, Cakes Da Killa is making waves across the world of hip-hop, electronic music, and dance.

Also performing are the dynamic pairing of MC Yallah + Debmaster. Kenyan born, Ugandan raised MC Yallah established herself as a pioneering voice in the East African rap scene in the early 2000s. With conscious, poetic, and experimental verses that traverse Luganda, Luo, Kiswahili, and English, MC Yallah is a central figure in the Nyege Nyege/Hakuna Kula La family. She is joined by regular collaborator Debmaster, who will be laying down eclectic live beats. The highly celebrated Berlin-based French producer has collaborated with artists in both Berlin and within the Nyege Nyege scene of East Africa.
