LET’s TALK:- M.I Did Not Reply Vector For The 40 Million Rap Battle Challenge? (Has He Accepted Defeat?)

This month has been the most anticipating month in the year as Vector and M.I were engaged in a what seems like the biggest diss in the history of rap in Nigeria.

The beef between two of the greatest rappers in Nigerian Hip-Hop history has been existing for a long time, but its effect on the music industry in general has been mild until about a month ago when they both diss each others on tracks, exposing their dirty secrets.

As expected, the internet has been blown up! People have started to compare which of the two rappers are winning the battle.

Some believe MI is having the upper-hand while others think Vector is actually ‘killing’ him. But the real question here is who is really the best between these duo?

Recently, some rap fans have shown massive interest in the beef as they vow to arrange a venue, take full responsibility for a proper rap battle between these 2 with the winner standing to gain N40M, and perhaps answer the biggest question of who the best rapper is between M.I and Vector.

However, Vector popularly known as the Viper has accepted the challenge for the culture. He made this known in a video posted on his IG story. But Mister Incredible has kept mute about it making Vectors fans have a upper hand.

Sometimes, its an insult to prove yourself to people. Perhaps this could be the reason why M.I has not accepted the challenge yet.

So Guys, the bone of contention here now is 👇

Do You Think M.I Has Accepted Defeat To Vector Lowkey?
Lets have your say on this

To Upcoming Artistes: Record Labels Are Not Charity Organizations – Enoch Israel

One mistake most upcoming artistes make is that they are always looking for record labels that will sign them, give them money and make them popular. What they fail to understand is that Music Record Labels are not Charity Organizations; they are not looking for artistes to promote and dash money to, but they are looking for artistes that will fetch them more money because they are music entrepreneurs that invest in music. So they only sign artistes that have already made a name for themselves, because those artistes have the potentials of making it big in the entertainment industry. What Music Record Label owners do is to invest in those artistes by signing them.

As an upcoming artiste, Promotion is vital. Promotion is everything. You can't succeed without promoting yourself. Talent is good, but promotion is better. Just like popular Nigerian rapper, Falz Tha Badguy said; "Even real talents need promo". It's easier for an artiste who is not talented but promotes his song to blow than a very talented artiste who does not promote his song to blow. It's one thing to record a good song, but it's another thing to promote it. If you record a good song without promoting it, who would listen to it? Only you, your friends and family. Pay bloggers to promote you. And pay radio and TV presenters to promote you as well.

So as an upcoming artiste, don't be looking for a label to sign you, but be working hard so as to make a name for yourself. And by so doing, record labels would come looking for you; they will be happy to invest in you because you're already succeeding. So music executives would be happy to invest in you because they are quite certain and convinced that you will succeed, and they will make profit. And that will be the genesis of your success.

Music is business, business is an investment,  and investing is all about making profit.



We won't be wrong if we say that, the value of unionism is not only losing its shape and purpose but also at the stage of stagnation where there is no good transition of leadership quality, competency, respect and above all sincerity of purpose.

When we talk about change, the youth feel they are the agents and the limelight of these transformation but reverse is the case were this same youths are used by politicians to disrupt the smooth running of democratic processes.

Even in our tertiary institutions that is suppose to be a learning ground, our attitudes towards comradeship is unacceptable, unsustainable and disastrous.

When you ask a student why comradeship?
They reasons given for aspiring to become a Comrade is nothing but for just mere recognition with possible social advantages that comes with it.

Genuine Comradeship is a ground for leadership  experimentation and modelling that will reflect in the generation unborn.

I am of the opinion that the class of comrades that emerge on our campuses should be re-oriented and mentored on the task and responsibilities of leadership so has to bridge the gap on the missing core values needed in our struggle for revival and bringing back glory to our fatherland.

The misconception that, everybody, anywhere is a comrade has long as you print out posters, serve in 
electoral committees or indicate interest in any political process should be corrected because comradeship is earned true esteemed representation and not bought like we have been made to believe.

I say no to Comradeship by political baptism.

I say no to Comradeship of God-fatherism.

Comradeship should be earned.
