My top 5 Nigerian rappers? I wanna say M.I number one, Olamide, Phyno… Is Manifest from here [Nigeria]? Okay, he is from Ghana. Damn!

“Yeah, I wanna say Oddy, he played me a lot of his tracks. Odumodublvck for sure, is my number four. And then Blaqbonez. Blaqbonez is my guy. One of my homies had asked me, ‘How do you know this guy [Blaqbonez]?’. I was like I’ve known him for like a couple of years ago. Maybe four years ago.’

“At first, he [Blaqbonez] was someone I just came across with such good energy. He was funny on social media and I like to do that kind of stuff on social media. When I really started listening to his music, I was like, ‘Yo, he is actually hard.’ So, he is definitely my number five.”

In Northern Nigeria, the male entertainers like DJ AB, Morell, Classiq, Deezell and many more have overshadowed the hip-hop industry. You would even question if there are female rappers in the north.

However, the female rappers are beginning to counter traditional stereotypes through hip-hop by navigating where even some male entertainers fear to tread.
