Brasse Vannie Kaap (BVK) was a hip-hop group that hailed from the Cape Flats in Cape Town, South Africa. They rapped in predominantly in the Cape Flats dialect of Afrikaans. The original line-up included Deon Daniels (Boeta-D), Roger Heunis (Hamma), Ashley Titus (Mr Fat) and Enver Pietersen (DJ E20). Bboys Cheeze, Baby-L and Levi joined the group soon after they started to perform live.Their debut album was a self-titled project named BVK and was released through Ghetto Ruff Records in 1997. This album became successful on the Afrikaans music circuit with tracks like “Fords Nissans Toys en Beetles (FNTB)”, “Jy smaak my”, “Kaap van storms”, and many others getting high rotation on radio stations all over the country. It also received a South African Music Awards (SAMA) nomination for best hip hop album in 1998. BVK and Prophets of da City are credited with pioneering Afrikaans hip-hop in Cape Town, South Africa, during the early to late 1990s and paved the way for both hip-hop and kwaito artists to rap in languages other than English. In other words, they set the scene for ‘rapping in the vernac’ in South Africa and validated non-standard dialects Afrikaans, Zulu, Sotho and Xhosa via their performances and collaborations across cultural and linguistic divides.
