Life in the creative world: an exclusive editorial by Theresa Kaindl

How can the creative world contribute to a better world if even itself is not truly free?  How can an artist free oneself from concepts and norms learnt? How can we still break rules not just for the sake of breaking rules but out of pursuit for true change, true creativity, true freedom and justice?  Congo-born rapper Hugo Kafumbi showed Numéro Berlin his very own perspective on freedom and creativity and why both has to go hand in hand.

Adopted from the Congo at the age of 14, hoping for a better future far from the war in his country, Kafumbi’s struggles continued. His life on the streets shaped him and his art tremendously. Today, he shares his life story in his music, exploring and discovering his voice as a young African artist living in Europe, shying away from the old norms and rules in the rap world. The recording artist now lives between Berlin and Prague. Check out our exclusive editorial and video below.
