Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.

The random article for Wednesday, 13 September 2023 is Beninese hip hop.

Hip hop music is a genre developed in the 1970s by African Americans in New York City. It began to spread around the world in the 1980s, and became a major part of Beninese music after a 1992 concert by Senegalese-French rapper MC Solaar. At that concert, the crew H2O performed a Fon language-cover of Solaar's "Bouge de là". H2O are known for using folk styles like the Mahi tchinkounme and Yoruba music gbon.

This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 00:30 UTC on Wednesday, 13 September 2023.

For the full current version of the article, see Beninese hip hop on Wikipedia.
