Dope Saint Jude

Based: Cape Town

Some of you may know Catherine St Jude Pretorius, better known Dope Saint Jude, as she one of Cape Town’s hottest up and coming artists, she is known for raps, fighting for gender neutrality, being a socially conscious advocate for feminism and an avid advocate for gay rights.

With her edgy and controversial take on the music scene, she is certainly someone who will be around for a while, and that is apparent by the fact that this young musician has already managed to scoop herself a position at this year’s 18th annual Cape Town International Jazz Festival. St Jude sees hip-hop as much more than just music, as she has even given guest lectures on hip-hop society and its social aspects at a few of Cape Town’s Universities.
