Blaqbonez Responds To Wizkid’s Comments About Nigerian Rappers 

Nigerian rap sensation Blaqbonez has responded to Wizkid’s remarks about Nigerian rappers.

By Omotayo Olutekunbi

Nigerian megastar Wizkid stated in an interview with 10 Magazine that the genre of rap was dead and that he was bored by how similar the beats and styles were. 

Rappers in Nigeria responded to the comments, with some, including M.I., YCee, and Oladips, disagreeing with the Grammy winner.

After remaining mute on the subject, Blaqbonez has now made up his mind to express his opinions, revealing that the comments have disappointed and upset him.

On Monday, December 5, 2022, Blaqbonez said on Twitter that it is well known that he is a huge admirer of Wizkid and that while the content of the interview didn’t concern him, the following remarks made on Snapchat did.

Wizkid said that Nasty C, Sarkodie, and Black Sherif were the only rappers in Africa and that they were all broke in a Snapchat post.

The statements, according to Blaqbonez, were unjustified and harsh. He also reiterated that he owes all he has to hip-hop and that he plans to keep carrying Nigerian hip-hop on his back.

“The last few days had me reflecting, looking back at how far I’ve come, the Wins and the Losses, whatever rap may or may not be, it got me this, everything I have, the cult like fans who by far are the best part of everything. I said that to say i’m disappointed, everyone knows I’m a big wizkid fan, maybe even a dick rider on twitter but rn I’m disappointed, i am, I can’t hide my emotions, I wasn’t even mad at the magazine article, those are conversations I’ve even had behind the scenes, but the actions that followed can’t be defended, heavily degrading and undeserved but I’d keep doing my thing, carrying the most bashed and the most attacked genre on my back, showing the world what a Nigerian rapper looks like. I’d keep dropping these hits, classic albums, selling out my shows, however far it takes me I’m good with it long as i can feed my family…”
