Real reasons I’m upset with MI –Vector

Nigerian rapper Vector tha Viper is one of Nigeria’s top rappers in the music industry and he is recognized for his creative lyrics and dedication towards his talent.

When another popular Nigerian rapper, M.I who recently released a song, You Rappers Should Fix Up Your Lives, which didn’t project Nigerian rappers in a good light, Vector wasn’t happy about it.

The chocolate city rapper had criticised all rappers in Nigeria, saying they were not as good as South African rappers.

In a chat with Sunday Scoop, Vector said he was upset with MI because he felt there were better ways he could have addressed the issue rather than going public and comparing Nigerian rappers with South African rappers.

He explained, “No matter how much your parents flog you, they will not tell outsiders that you are a stupid child. He doesn’t have to say it openly that SA rappers are ‘killing’ Nigerian rappers. I have never said this before, but the simple truth is that we shouldn’t wash our dirty linen in public. It is fine to discipline people at home and I support that. If your children mess up, you can discipline them.

“When Jay-Z released the Death of Auto-Tune, he addressed everyone and said they should all go back to rap music. He didn’t say a group of rappers is doing better than one group. I didn’t like the fact that he called out Nigerian rappers openly and was comparing us with SA rappers.”

On why he has not collaborated with MI on a song all these years, he said it was just unfortunate that whenever they wanted to work together, something always came up

“We tried to work together on two different occasions, but it just didn’t happen. The first time was when he sent a beat to me to work on and he was supposed to be on the remix of my song, King Kong. Classiq later took his verse and did very well. We can still do something together later in the future. It is music; it is nothing serious,” he noted.
