An Open Letter To Phyno Fino..
For the past 10 years, you have taken the stage as the king of Igbo Rapper. Not only did you took over the kingship, you have also proven beyond any reasonable Doubts that Phyno is of the best indigenous rappers in the world. I give it to you boss!
A decade ago, Igbo musicians really dominated the music industry and were doing so well. The likes of Psqare, Bracket, tekno, flavour etc but today, it seems you guys have left the industry for our Yoruba brothers.
I am not trying to bring tribalism here but I must confess that when it comes to music, the Yoruba people are really helping their upcoming ones. That’s why they’re making waves today.
I decided to write this letter over these two guys popularly known as Blessnnachi and Igboboiyspace . These guys needs no introduction.
These two guys have proven to continue on the legacy and pace you’ve already set up in terms of Igbo rap. Their songs are even better than most of the known artist today.
Oga Phyno, I know you may be having this paranoia that if you lift these guys, they will take over from you! That is not right.
Recall you started rap song with Olamide. While you conquered south East, Olamide took over the south west but let me shock you, Olamide has produced many more Yoruba rappers while he is still the king.
Portable aka Zaazuh that is making waves today was just as a result of a feature Olamide gave his career, today the rest is history.
Should I talk about WizKid, Davido, Naira Marley, Zlatan, Teni and host of others. Even our brother Don Jazzy who is from UMUAHIA is yet to sign much upcoming artists from South East.
Mr. Phyno, I want to beg you in the name of God to please feature this guy by name BlessNnachi, he has tried enough and now needs a booster!
The way I’m seeing that guy, once he is brought to limelight, he will take other upcoming guys along. You can check out his page and see it there. That we are hearing about igboboiyspace was as a result of BlessNnachi.
I don’t know if this letter will ever get to you but if indeed you did see it, oga, please help these upcoming artists. We are not talking about signing them, just give them a feature and introduce them to other artists using your influence.
How can we have someone like you and they will be going else to look for help. Mr. Phyno, do you know that if you produce more artists in your name, it will be part of your legacy, not only that, attentions will be brought back to south East because of that.
Oga, if you do this, God will bless you for me!
