It is a good year for Nigerian music. The likes of Olamide, Reminisce, Lil Kesh, Seriki and CDQ are flying the Yoruba rap flag very high. But there are upcoming rappers who are also doing very well for themselves.
These guys have sublime rhymes, hard hitting punchlines and an all-round swag to boot. Another advantage they have is social media. Each one of them has a rapidly growing fan base across all platforms. And their respective record labels have taken note of this and are parlaying this into wider acceptance for them.
This said, here are 4 promising Yoruba rappers to look out for
1. Chinko Ekun
I once saw a video of Chinko rapping in a studio with Olamide, Adekunle Gold and his other YBNL stars present. This is no big deal right? Until you realize that Chinko was freestyling about things in front of him literally. He recently released his latest single Shayo ft. Dremo and Falz. Check it out below:
