By STEPHEN FORBES Getting the support slot for hip hop heavyweight Public Enemy's New Zealand shows is a dream come true for Nadeem Shafi. The Bethells Beach resident released his debut album Flesh and Bones earlier this year under his stage name Scalper. Nadeem says playing the concerts in Christ- church on January 7 and Auckland on January 8 will be great. I feel blessed,'' he says. I'm really looking forward to it. I've seen them a few times over the years,'' he says. But it's unbeliev- able getting a chance to support them.'' Public Enemy is a hip hop group from the United States which formed in 1982. Their songs include Fight The Power and Don't Believe the Hype. Nadeem says before getting the support slot he was getting despon- dent. But this one came totally out of the blue.'' Nadeem first came to New Zealand in 1997 as part of the UK-based hip hop group Fun-Da- Mental to play at the Womad Festival at Auck- land's Western Springs. For him it was a life- changing experience thanks to DJ DLT who took him and his band mates to the Ureweras. After returning to the UK he and his partner decided to move to New Zealand about three years ago. Nadeem is working on material for the next Scalper album which he hopes to release next year.
