Born Olanrewaju Ogunmefun, his fans know him as Vector. His adventure into music dates back to 1997 during his secondary school days.
According to him, because of his effort and skill in music, Vector has been celebrated as one of the best underground rap artistes in Lagos.
In 1999, he formed a Hip-Hop group, Badder Boiz. In the same year, they started writing their songs and performing at some major events. The whole exercise was to showcase their raw talents and gain exposure. The group recorded their first demo series in 1999.
However, Vector was going the way of an M.C as his freestyle skills became obvious to other members of the group. So it was not surprising when in 2004, Krystal left the group due to irreconcilable differences. Blaze also left, leaving Vector glued to his dream.
Vector is a rap artiste cum lyricist, a songwriter and a producer. He’s performed at the Channel ‘O’ Lagos Party held at the Vaults.
In 2009, he was the voice behind the Sprite commercial aired on most radio stations across Nigeria.
His just-released singles, Throwing Away(My Sorrow)and Na U are presently rocking the air. And recently, his yet-to-be-released video, Angeli featuring 9ice was shot. It was directed by Clarence Peters and will be released into the market soon.
