Rap Music In Nigeria Is Suffering Immensely During This 21st Century Largely Because Of Artistes Quest For Money Which They Are Of The Opinion Can Only Be Attracted Through Commercial Songs.

Let’s Go Down The History Lane The 1st Rap Music In Nigeria Emanated In 1981 From The Mind Of a Protesting On-Air Personality Who Decided To Throw a Dagger At The Disco Rap Trend Which Suddenly Became The Rave of The Moment. With The Release Of “THE WAY I FEEL RAP” Ron “Ronnie Ekundayo” Became The Proponent Of Hip Hop and Rap In Nigeria.

According To History, Sound On Sound (1988) Was The 1st Hip Hop And Rap Group That Gained Much Popularity In Nigeria. Therefore, Like Most Of Nigerian Hip Hop Critics And Commentators,
I Believed In The Assumption That The Group Pioneered Nigerian Hip Hop And Rap Music.

Follow Us On Twitter/IG : @UrbanNG_Com

In The Late 90’s, The Following Artistes Contributed Towards Igniting
The Hip Hop Fire In The Nigerian Arena. Artistes Like TRYBESMEN, Ruff, Rugged & Raw, Maintain, Blackface Of Plantainshun Boiz, X-Appeal, Rasqie, Swatroot, Apostles, Terry Tha Rapman,
Lord Of Ajasa, Mode9, Big Lo And a 3 Man Group Called THE REMEDIES Consisting Of (Tony Tetuila, Eedris Abdulkareem, Eddie Montana) And So On.

All The Aforementioned Names, During That Time, They Were Giving Their Fans REAL RAP MUSIC. Enough Said, Ruggedman Pioneered The Era Of “Lyrical Awakening” With The Release Of EHEN pt1 In 2002, Other Artistes Like Eedris Abdulkareem, Lord Of Ajasa, Terry Tha Rapman, Mode9 Had No Choice Buh To Buckle Up And That Was The Birth Of Nowadays Rap Music.

Afterwards, We Had The Emergence Of DA GRIN, He Released His 1st Album “STILL ON THE MATTER” In 2006 With Heavy Heavy Rap Tracks Though It Doesn’t Receive Much AirPlay.

Then, We Had MI (Mr Incredible) Who Released His 1st Track In 2006 In Jos And It Was Titled …
