Capital Hill Music female rapper, Akindele Justina Omowunmi, aka Mz Kiss, has come out hard on fellow artiste, Yung6ix, for saying hip-hop music is gradually phasing out in Nigeria. The Warri-born and bred Yungsix singer, asserted in a social media rant why he is still doing hip-hop despite his belief that the genre is going downhill.
“Nigerian hip-hop is dying. I’m just doing something for the culture and for my fans out here that really want to listen to that good music, to that hip-hop music that they have been missing out on”, he said. But Mz Kiss totally disagrees with him, according to her; hip-hop is very much alive and is doing well in Nigeria. She went further to stress that hip-hop music is the most lucrative in the country at the moment, therefore, saying Yung6ix is completely uninformed.
In her words : “Who said hip-hop is dying? Maybe the person is dead I don’t know, because you can’t say hip-hop is dying in Nigeria. Do you know that about four years ago, Reminisces’ album hit the billboard? So what are you talking about, it’s completely wrong! From the days of MI, Mode 9, Illbliss, the late Dagrin, Reminisce, Ice Prince, are you telling me these people are not successful? What are you saying man? Come on, swallow that thing, street lo n gbowo, ki lon happen”, she retorted.
