Olabimpe – Has Wizkid really lost his touch? What exactly went wrong? Could this be his first bad song? Wizkid actually owes me an explanation for I am in a state of wonderment. After listening to the 3-minute track, these were the questions floating in my head.
“Ghetto Love” no doubt is a great bop with a sick beat but not what I expected after being starved for almost a year. The concept of the title, artwork, lyrics and the video are just all shades of wrong. Everything was done in the manner in which a toddler would mess up a room.
Starting with the title which is catchy and quite unique, I felt it would be an inspirational anthem for the streets but it turned out to be the regular kind of music lovers love to consume – professing love for women. The artwork which is a captivating picture of a young lad listening to music with a walkerman played a major role in convincing that the song was going to have rich and deep lyrics.
The lyrics and the video do not even match and that’s really confusing. The “Fever” singer goes on declaring his love for different women recycling lyrics from his other songs. The only sensible part was where he sang about his mother. The video which helped in creating further disorientation, tells the touching story of how little Wizkid fell in love with music and also about his transition to fame and fortune.
Looking at the brighter side of things, this song would get crazy airplay because of the criticism it has gathered. Just like “Manya” which was also considered thrash at the time of its release still turned out to be successful. “Ghetto Love” is not entirely that bad and has elements that only Wizkid can infuse into a track but it’s certainly not what was anticipated. It lacked the “Ghetto” feel the title portrayed.
Ratings – 3/5

MI Abaga’s “The Viper” VS Vector’s “Judas The Rat” – Who Is Winning This Rap Battle?
The beef between two of the greatest rappers in Nigerian Hip-Hop history has been existing for a long time, but its effect on the music industry in general has been mild until about a month ago when MI dropped a cypher for Martell alongside Loose Kanyon, Blaqbonez & AQ.
MI dropped a whole verse that Vector felt was directed as a diss at him. But as a lyrical monster and rap genius that he is, Vector felt it wouldn’t be a sensible thing to keep quiet and watch without making a counter-attack. And just some days after, Vector got in the studio with Payper & Vader on “The Purge,” to try to put some things straight with MI. At this point was when everything became explosive as the internet got shaken. People started clearing the field as they knew a battle that could end up being the biggest battle in Nigeria’s Hip-Hop history was imminent.
A lot of people gave opinions on the internet propagating the fact that Vector murdered MI on “The Purge,” thereby requesting that if MI wanted to protect his legacy and the “best rapper ever” tag, he’s got to reply. MI however listened days after, dropping a massive record; “The Viper,” in which many people agreed shattered Vector’s response as they felt he truly slain the Lafiaji rapper.
However, like a game of Ping Pong, fans wanted “the egg” to go back and forth. They revealed with MI’s “The Viper,” Vector was left a track behind in being on par with “The Chairman” in what has been turned a rap battle by rap fanatics. The rap industry had paused other activities, channeling their energy in pushing Vector to make a comeback. That energy finally becomes productive today, October 11, 2019 as Vector releases a response-track; “Judas The Rat” to address MI’s “The Viper.”
As expected, the internet has been blown up! People have started to compare which of the two rappers are winning the battle. Some believe MI is having the upper-hand while others think Vector is actually ‘killing’ him. What do you think?

We thought of 2 of the biggest record labels in Africa, Davido Music Worldwide (DMW) and Starboy Worldwide being football teams and we decided to make a squad with all of the record label artistes and some of the closest allies of the record labels.
