Kenya's Octopizzo: From slum to hip-hop artist and activist

Octopizzo is a hip-hop artist, activist and youth ambassador.

The 26-year-old was born in Kibera, the largest slum in Nairobi, Kenya, and in his songs addresses poverty, tribal wars and issues concerning youth.

He spoke to the BBC's Focus on Africa's Baya Cat about his inspiration and giving young people living in the ghetto "something to be proud of."
