The Reemergence of Nigerian Rap Music

By Adegbola Wahab

For the first time in many years, the Nigeria’s music industry felt rap, I mean almost everyone paid attention to rap this year than ever before, all thanks to Vector and M.I. Both Vector and M.I are unarguably two kings in Nigeria’s rap game and their recent diss fight has got everyone paying attention to conscious rap. You all already how the diss battle started from Martel Cypher which had M.I and his team to The Purge Cypher by Vector and his team down to “Tetracylcling“.
Meanwhile, it took M.I two weeks to reply Vector after he dissed him on “The Purge” cypher. The Chocolate City boss replied with “The Viper“, a diss track targeted at Vector. M.I‘s “The Viper” diss track was rich in contents as he utilized the opportunity to throw several shots at Vector well.
We all thought M.I has succeeded in silencing Vector because of some hard knocks he gave him in that diss track but Nah! Vector bounced back few days later with another diss track titled “Judas The Rat” where he gave M.I some deep backlash in response to various claims in “The Viper” diss track.
But this Battle has just begun, remember the Almighty Davido is cooking something with king kong that will hit the street and might make MI regret his existence, OBO even instructed dremo to Diss Mi and don’t forget Sodiq CDQ just jumped on reminisce’s recent track beat OGB4IG to dismantle the self acclaim “chairman” I don’t really know what will be the outcome of this but I see MI loosing shamelessly.
Remember Baba Afusa,King Baddo and phyno are yet to say anything and I hope you remembered how they show love to him on their local rappers track. MI need to act fast you don’t joke with Yoruba demon and go scot free he can ask Rugged man after his clash with legendary 9ICE, Seriki almost send him to early grave. We are watching but it seems that dwarf want japa cos I’m hearing something like I don’t have time to reply vector Blah Blah….. Bro reply with another authentic rap track not this one you are advising king Kong as if you are his father we ask for Diss track not Gospel track even the great EMINEM diss. #teamlafiaji #teamkingkong #teamvectorviper
