FACE, FAME AND FATE

FACE, FAME & FATE OF THE NIGERIAN HIP HOP ARTISTES

(JANUARY-JUNE 2012 EDITION)

THE PAST

They were the movers and shakers of the days of their reign. They set the pace, they sacrificed their all, yet they received token as rewards. They were the song on our lips, and role models to many upcoming artistes. Though many of them never won an award, they were celebrated and rated high among their counterparts.

Azadus  Daddy Shokey  Daddy Fresh
   
Marvellous Benjy Eddy Montana  Tony Tetuila
2Shotz Pastor Goddy-Goddy Big-Lo

 

THE OUTGOING

They had once been on the seat; their names are easy to reckon with, but for now, they are just there, nothing else. Though some of them make efforts to keep to the trend, some are in big record labels, some are with good music promoters, they are still not just okay for the present day stardom. There is a very thin line between this category and the present celebrities because many artistes that are in this category are still left in the fantasy of believing that they still control the crowd. My advice for peeps in this category is to sit up, else, they will soon be rated as past celebrities.

Freestyle  Durella  African China
 
Danny Young Konga  Capital F.E.M.I
Weird M.C Sasha Bouqui

 

THE PRESENT

No Loooooong thing! These are the boom! The rave of the moment, the reigning rulers, the talk of the industry, the club’s delight…I beg, let’s just put it on a low key. Like you all know, it could be very easy to walk to stardom, the main thing is your ability to sustain the fame and keep the fire blazing. These guys are on point, for REAL!
