Nigerians React To Complex Magazine’s Top Rappers In Nigeria Article

3

So Complex Magazine put out a list of “5 Nigerian Rappers” that Jay-Z and the American public should know, and let’s just say it was very poorly researched.

It started off with talking about Nigerian Hip-Hop and then somehow ended with WizKid, Seyi Shay, Davido, Kiss Daniel and Lil Kesh, of which only Lil Kesh is really considered a rapper. Now since then, they’ve revised the heading to “5 Nigerian Hit Songs You, and Jay Z, Should Know” but we didn’t forget the initial heading that was all kinds of wrong.

Needless to say, many Nigerians that saw the article had plenty to say about it, and the gross misinformation it put out. Here’s some of the reactions from Nigerians on twitter:

We’re pretty sure, the folks at Complex Music have gotten the gist now… especially seeing as they quickly changed the title of the article. But a quick tip, next time, please do some research, or at least label your article correctly.
