In association with Baobabconnections, we have built a chat room for users of the African hip hop forums.
It's already up and running... you can log in by using the login/pass that you use in the forums.
Try it out here... and give us your feedback. I will soon add an easy chat popup-button so that you can easily access this page.
When logging in, provide your Africanhiphop login and password plus the name of the site through which you are logging in (Africanhiphop.com).
Use the 'New! Chat Lounge' link above to open the chat popup.
