Rapper M.I. Aka The Guy, who has won numerous awards, said in a recent video that he has battled as hard for rap in Nigeria as anybody else, which is why he can talk with such authority about it.

The video is a response to the things that happened after Wizkid made his remarks on hip-hop and Nigerian musicians. The Afrobeats megastar claimed that Hip Hop is dead and that he is tired of the genre’s same beat and lyrics in an interview with 10 Magazine UK.

Artists in Nigeria that responded to Wizkid’s statements included YCEE, Oladips, A-Q, Blaqbonez, and M.I. He then reiterated his claim by calling Nigerian rappers broke and asserting that Sarkodie, Nasty C, and Black Sherif are the only rappers in Africa.

M.I. responded to the remark previously by mentioning successful Nigerian rappers. Jhybo, a seasoned street-hop performer, called him out for acting like the Hip Hop King in response to his statement.

M.I acknowledged the work of other rappers including Vector, SDC, Illbliss, Ice Prince, Jesse Jagz, Naeto C, Ladipoe, and YCEE in his new video while stating that he battled for years to bring rap to what it is.

In the 21-minute film, M.I. stated, “When I’m speaking, I do so with my contributions and the weight of my experience.” He also described how rappers were given no chance and had to fight to be successful despite the odds. He also emphasized that rap is flourishing in Nigeria and that the future of the genre is secure because of artists like Odumodu Blvck.
