In a bid to disuade him from leaving the music scene, Rich The Kid said; “Retire? Why? How? The people need you. The music you, TY [Dollar $ign] and we have made was the biggest stamp in culture to this date in 2024.

“Drop Ye about mine & V2 and we do it all over again. The kids need you, big bro. Fashion maybe some time to chill but retiring ain’t it.”

Meanwhile, in another news…

Weeks ago, Nigerian rapper and singer, Skales reacted to the announcement by his colleague, Victor Ncha Odu professionally known as Vic O, that he is quitting music.

The Hip Hop artiste took to his social media page on Saturday to make the announcement and he explained that he is quitting music because Nigerians don’t deserve him.

Speaking in a video posted on his official Instagram page recently, Vic O lamented the lack of support from fans and low patronage from show organisers. He said he deserves better than what he gets from Nigerians.
