Mumbai Rapper Divine Impresses BBC Host with Impromptu Performance
Vivian Fernandes aka Divine freestyles and spit bars on the go when BBC host, Charlie Sloth throws beats at him
Mumbai Rapper Vivian Fernandes aka Divine thought it was an honor for him to be on BBC Radio for a show. But, boy, was he in for a surprise! When Divine’s own hero, Charlie Sloth, who hosts the popular show ‘Fire in the Booth’ on BBC appeared on the show to throw beats at him, Divine was speechless. But not for long!
Soon Divine started rapping to the beats thrown at him and let’s just say he killed it with his talent, leaving Charlie visibly impressed!
Divine, who comes from a humble background raps in Hindi using local slangs and everyday happenings of the common people. He believes his words connect with every Indian, no matter what their background.
Although, Charlie did not understand Divine, he enjoyed how quick the rapper picked up the beats and set the booth on fire with his prowess! He did freestyle and spit bars as Charlie threw beats at him which he had never heard before.
His song, Jungli Sher, which talks about his struggle and angst growing up alone, is the first official video to be shot entirely on iPhone 6S.
