Self-proclaimed King of the South rapper Yung6ix has belittled every other rapper in the country as he states that there is only one rapper in Nigeria which is himself.
Born Onome Onokohwomo, Yung6ix made the controversial statement ‘I am the only rapper in the country right now,’ while running an interview with HipTV.
He went on to say ‘I can’t see anybody doing modern day rap music apart from myself. It’s just the truth. It’s just the fact. They don’t do it like I do it.’
The Billionaire Circle honcho told HipTV that the music industry has been unfair to him because he is not from the West (Yoruba).
‘Coming from south-south Nigeria has been the most challenging stuff because when people want to do anything, they keep the south-south out of it,’ he said.
‘When they want to give awards, they keep us out of it. First of all, which other rapper from south-south has been doing this for the past ten years?
I had a chance because I came into the industry under the right record label.’
The ‘Ina The Benz’ crooner gave his take on the spread of Afrobeats to the world.
“When we started, the industry was not on this level. We are past the point where Afrobeats is so big. We are about to conquer the world’, he said.
