In the state Duma called Russian rappers “artists African folk songs”
MOSCOW, 18 Jul — RIA Novosti. State Duma Deputy from the faction “Fair Russia” Oleg Nilov called the Russian rappers “artists of the African ditties” and complained that they paid more attention than the performers of Russian folk art.
“Look: is not the first week, shake all channels, all media these courting “performers of the African ditties”. They call themselves rappers, I call them performers of African rhymes. Why no such attention to the performers of our folk songs, ditties including folk art? Why they do not offer grants, why are they not collected in the State Duma and say: “Let’s talk, let’s get you support in some word or deed”?”, — said Nilov reporters.
