Wizkid’s comment about rappers generated controversy but Vector said the Grammy winner Wizkid should not be only one getting heat.
It may be recalled that during an interview with 10 magazine, Wizkid said rap is dead while arguing in favour of Afrobeats dominating the Hip Hop genre.
According to the Starboy Entertainment founder, the Hip Hop artistes mostly rap on the same beats, and they have similar styles.
Wizkid also took to social media and said Nigerian rappers are non-rappers who lack development and he went on to list the South Africa’s Nasty C and Ghana’s Sarkodie as the ‘real rappers’ in Africa.
Subsequently, Wizkid received backlash mostly from Nigerian rap artistes who either responded to him online or released diss raps.
But Vector said a good rapper is not judged by how much he makes or whether he is successful, rather, it is because he has the lyrical skills to tell a story.
Vector who was speaking in an interview on Hip TV however said that it is disrespectful to talk down on another person’s life or career if you do not fully comprehend what it’s all about or if one cannot relate.
According to him, someone who is a pop star would see the rap game in Nigeria as being comatose and it’s all about perspective.
He also said everybody is guilty of not supporting rap enough and he found it weird that people were expecting him and other rappers to diss Wizkid even when they they do not appreciate Hip Hop as much as Afrobeats.
