Friday’s with 4IAM
4IAM isn’t just one of the most exciting and unique T-Pop acts coming out of Africa in a long time. It’s also a movement consisting of five girls leading the way for future generations with a clear message: You can achieve your dreams no matter where you come from.
Hitchat Entertainment developed 4IAM in 2021. The African entertainment company focuses on finding, developing and launching talents from townships and disadvantaged African communities using their unique T-Pop model. T-pop is, in essence, top-end acts that sing, rap & dance to songs that are a mix between international pop productions, African beats, and African lyrics. The acts perform synchronised, well-choreographed dances to songs that are upbeat and consist of various genres, including traditional choreography and local languages.
The name 4IAM is an acronym and stands for 4th Industrial Age Music representing the new genre of T-pop at a time of new technological revolution. 4IAM and T-Pop are the future, music you can listen to for generations to come. The influential members are Doli, PHX, Annie, Grace & Giselle. A collective of five girls from townships across South Africa with a story to tell. 4IAM is all about embracing your upbringing and showing the world you can accomplish anything you set your mind to. With big goals, hard work and a strong message of women empowerment and owning your story, 4IAM embodies the concept that anything and everything is possible.
