Nigerian rapper, Emeka Akumefule professionally known as Blaqbonez has bragged about being better than American rap star, Gunna.
He said that if they were to have a one-on -one rap battle, Gunna would not be able to defeat him on a beat.
Blaqbonez made the declaration while responding to a fan that praised him after he dropped a new song titled Stealth Mode.
The man took to his comment section and wrote; “They called me a madman when I said you Better than Rat Gunna.”
Reacting, Blaqbonez said irrespective of people’s feelings about the matter, Gunna cannot match him in the rap game.
He tweeted; “whether they like it or not, he’s not out rapping me on a beat”
In other news, Nigerian Twitter Influencer, Daniel Regha has said music star, Ayo Balogun aka Wizkid started becoming less of a force after he took a jab at rappers.
It may be recalled that during an interview with 10 magazine, the “Essence” crooner said rap is dead while arguing in favour of Afrobeats dominating the Hip Hop genre.
According to the Starboy Entertainment founder, 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 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 freestyles.
Months after the singer made these comments, Regha said he lost his star power due to the outcome of his utterance.
According to the social commentator, it also led to Wizzy’s More Love, Less Ego album turning out as a big failure.
He advised the Joro crooner to recant his statement, beg for forgiveness and make efforts to improve his behaviour.
Regha said; “Wizkid’s star power has seriously dropped after he mocked rappers; MLLE is no doubt a mid project, but this also led to the album being a big flop (compared to MIL). He needs to retract his words, beg for forgiveness & improve his behaviour. Humility goes a long way. No offense.”
