Fast rising Nigerian rapper Emeka Akumefule popularly known as Blaqbonez has expressed disappointment in his idol Wizkid over his recent comments that Hip Hop is dead.
The rapper who has previously reacted to Wizkid’s comments said that even though he was core fan, he felt disheartened by the saga.
He clarified that he was only disappointed at Wizkid’s comments after the interview wherein he referred to Nigerian rappers as broke boys and rated three foreign rappers over them.
He however promised to keep on performing and doing his best for the genre.
the last few days had me reflecting, looking back at how far I’ve come, the Wins and the Losses, whatever rap may or may not be, it got me this, everything i have, the cult like fans who by far are the best part of everything. I said that to say i’m disappointed, everyone knows I’m a big wizkid fan, maybe even a dick rider on twitter but rn I’m disappointed, i am, I can’t hide my emotions, I wasn’t even mad at the magazine article, those are conversations l’ve even had behind the scenes, but the actions that followed can’t be defended, heavily degrading and undeserved but I’d keep doing my thing, carrying the most bashed and the most attacked genre on my back, showing the world what a Nigerian rapper looks like. I’d keep dropping these hits, classic albums, selling out my shows, however far it takes me I’m good with it long as i can feed my family. With that said Stream Young Preacher forever
