Famous Indigenous rapper, Remilekun Safaru aka Reminisce, is known for his strong lyrics when speaking Yoruba; but don’t be fooled. Reminisce also speaks very good English.
The rappper has come out to say that he believes only a few people speak good English in Nigeria.
According to him, Indigenous rappers have been neglected, but few of them have worked hard enoughha to be heard. He also says so many people want to be razz these days, because razz is seen as the new cool.
See his words below: –
“I don’t think anyone has given indigenous rappers any chance, we took it by ourselves. We just decided among ourselves that we need to make people know what we have to offer. Indigenous rappers own the crowd. Let’s be very honest with ourselves, how many people can speak good English in this country? It’s about the audience affiliating with the artistes who speak their language. It’s not about calling indigenous rappers razz and local. More people want to be razz now; they think razz is the new cool. Luckily for me, I am selling razz music and I am getting rich off it. “
