 Senghor touched on such subjects as the importance of the book to the local community, the position of women in Senegalese hip-hop, the evolution of language, her influences (such as Daara J, Duggy Tee, etc), and many more aspects. The event closed with a testimony to the art form and a performance from local rap artist Matador.
