Last week was a tough week for Nigerian rappers and their fans, as war of words and hard scrutiny broke out regarding the relevance of the genre in today’s music.
All this was sparked by Wizkid’s chat with 10+ magazine published last week, where he stated that rap was dead. We even wrote a piece dissecting the current status of the genre, check it out here.
Gatekeepers of the genre at least in the Nigerian space, swarmed in to defend their beloved genre, pointing out the various victories of rap artists just in 2022.
Vector, one of the industry veterans had a few to say also. He’s teamed up again with co-rapper Ladipoe, to share a music video for Clowns, a track off his latest album TESLIM: The Energy Still Lives In Me.
The music video for Clowns was directed by videographer NOSACHII and it becomes the fifth song off Vector’s new project to get a music video, the last one being Mercy featuring Seyi Vibez.
