Naija Hip Hop And Its Emptiness (Stroking The Admiration Of The Shallow Minds) by Rapmoney(m): 7:22am On Sep 07, 2014
I used 'hip hop' because I didn't want to use 'music'. Music consists of both native/cultural, gospel, etc. There are lots of naija cultural songs I can kill for; they cut across many Nigerian languages. When it comes to gospel, there are songs and artistes I admire. I can play the likes of Frank Edwards, Chris Morgan, Boniface Adefu, Sinach, etc all day wink

Now, naija hip hop. Getting so empty!!! What do these peeps say in their songs if not the butts of women and how they can die for it. Does it mean there is no other reasonable thing to talk about if not nyash? Out of every 10 naija hiphop you hear on radio, 9 must be talking about nyash. Gosh!!!

The effect of these songs on our kids cannot be easily over-looked. They corrupt these kids to a large extent. I have seen kids singing lines such as 'take banana till you go...', ' I fit die on top your matter ehhhh', 'ukwu', etc.

Nigerians are quick to conclude that foreign songs contain nothing, but with all sincerity, I think the ratio of foreign songs that are empty and those of naija cannot be compared. Most naija hiphop/dance hall songs are loved so much by the 'unintelligent' folks who find it hard to understand philosophical lines or lyrics. I still feel the level of your mentality determines the type of songs you listen to. I give respect to Gino, Yung Hanz, Modenine, Jesse Jagzz and the peeps who have been keeping it real.

All they sing about is cars,fame,money and women. Not only in Nigeria but hip hop all over the world. Why would i be listening to people praising themselves and demeaning everyone else in their songs undecided

BETTER, TOMORROW by Oritshefemi

BETTER Remix by Oritshefemi FT Vector da viper


IF E BETTER FOR EVERY MAN O, EVERY WOMAN EH, EVERYBODY AJIBOLE E NO GO DEY OOOO*
IF E BETTER FOR EVERY MAN O, EVERY WOMAN, EVERYBODY BANBIALLAH E NO GO DEY




VECTOR:

Orisafemi *ow pipu go do d work wey no dey

*ow u want make dem show d love wey no dey

*ow I wan respect d boss wey no dey pay

*ow u wan enjoy your salary wen d pay no dey tey

*I dey pray 4d future frm now,

*Cos men no dey chao

*But u see as dem dey plaow

*If e better for every man and woman as a fact

*I wouldn't have to feature on this track

*If to say life easy 4 d places like Ajegunle

*Omo boys for there no go dey spray bullets

* But I wonder ow d thief go dey aim me now

*You wan ROB me but my body no dey pain me now grin

*Even me self no sey no be today

*All d yawns I dey yawn e don tey

*if to say security dey for night

**************************

Ajibole E no go dey.*


The chorus of Oritsefemi, the verce and the Vector's raps were all within the content of the track.

It is not about self praising, it is about the reality. Vector did justice to that with his raps which accompany a great rymhs just like DaGreen's track DEMOCRAZY





GOD BLESS NIGERIA

I'm sorry to tell you this op. Most of those foreign artiste you are seeing as music lords sing trash too. Just listen to the likes of Lil Wayne,Rick Ross,2chainz etc all they talk about is Womanliness,weed,booty and clubbing. Though there are some artiste that always kill the lyrics like Bruno Mars and co. Respect to the likes of 2face,Jesse Jags,Vector,Olamide,Reminisce,9ice and their mama Asa.

Stick to what you like! When Inyanya was doing good music, few Nigerians knew or patronized him! He did kukure n all of a sudden he blew! I get ur point, But It's business and they call it commercial music!
