Ice Prince Is Better Than MI

share on:

Just before I started writing this article, I considered the consequences of such an article especially my relationship with the Chocolate city family but then it will go down history book that someone was not afraid of the truth.

A whole bunch of MI’s die hard fans may not bother to read this article but will move straight to the comment box to dump insults on me – I expected that as well but I beg you to carefully read the entire article and see my point(s).

In Igbo Land, they say that every father’s prayer is for the child to be bigger than him and I can assure you that MI is not an exception to the rule/idea.

Let me introduce you to Ice Prince.

Ice Prince
Ice Prince Rocking It

Panshak Henry Zamani (Ice Prince) an only son was born in Jos town. Faith turned him into the man of the house at age 14 when his father passed leaving him behind to take care of his mother and two sisters.

Ice Prince became a landlord and had to take upon him the responsibility of collecting rent from his tenants and using it to solve family needs.

Like most artistes, Ice Prince started his music career in the church choir with MI’s dad as the pastor. (Reason 1. MI and Jesse were in the choir with him and their father was the pastor so they had “Pastor’s sons privilege” and they are still using it till date).

MI vs Ice Prince

Choi! See boys with oversized clothes …pepper never rest.

Ice Prince didn’t over look the importance of education as a student at St Murumbas College, Jos even though he repeated JSS1 three times. (Reason 2. He didn’t plan to repeat JSS1 but over talent was the issue at that point; while his God given talent was trying to convince him to quit school early so that he could start music early, his chi was also trying to keep him back in school) he didn’t give up education, at least not at that point.

He kept writing music and within a short period Ice prince became a Local Rap Champion. As an LRC, Ice Prince was winning rap battles left, right and centre until a certain boy returned from America. MI’s return was a big blow to Ice Prince’s rising stardom, not only was MI fresh from Yankee, he was also rapping and speaking with Phonetics.

Ice prince tried hard to avoid his pastor’s son but when he couldn’t take it any longer, he challenged MI to public freestyle battle. It was a day no one will forget in Jos.The roads were closed. Markets didn’t open and women were only allowed to watch from the windows of their home.

The battle started and both went hard of the beats and at the end, MI won the battle.

Ice Prince did not give up, he continued putting effort into his music. He got admission to study Zoology in University of Jos but just one week in the university, music won him over and he “fashied” school for music.

He became close friends with the Abagas and like the say “the rest is history”.

Now, back to my reason for saying that Ice Prince is better than MI, I don’t know again  ooooo but before I started writing, I had it written down and now I can’t find it.

Oh well, MI, JESSE and ICE PRINCE are choc boiz (Best Team) and MI provided ICE PRINCE the platform to shout “Oleku

Verse 1(Ice Prince)
I’m so interesting…./ is why they say that I’m the next thing/ see even on features I’m impressing/ people do hate but ima flexing/ I learnt the lesson/ they throw me shots but ima chestin/ I’m far from pop my pop is resting/ my flow so bad my tongue is vexing/ no one is testin/ I’m best by far is what I’m guesing/ 1 2 3 I win like wrestling/ how can i loose I’m with the best team../ I’m the boy with the fire/ and djs gimme more spin than a tyre/ seen it all, done it all, sang in a choir/ feeling like I’m tenor here only go higher/


Verse 2(Ice Prince)
Its so exciting…/ The games been dark but I’m igniting/ positive flow I’m so attracting/ whether freestyles or even writing/ I put my life in/ the bread don’t cut i put the knife in/ my left hand weak i put the right in/ and take my bars from J to brighton/ I see the lightening/ I know sometimes the rain is fritening/ no matter how hard, the seed is ripening/ so when u hear Icey princey hype him/ I don try plenty/ I dey rap I dey sing I dey come MC/ there’s too many songs and i neva empty/ na u chop stone if u want tempt me/


Verse 3(Ice Prince)
I’m so contageous/ and no ones done this good in ages/ I put my foot in hell courageous/ too many verse like bible pages/ and I hope they play this/ so i can grow up frm low to apex/ until my account is fat and shapeless/ too many songs but mine is latest/ so love or hate this/ am getting my cake am on the cake list/ beating my chest am on the ape list/ u shld be honoured and bow to greatness/ see ma names gettin famous/ my teams fire mehnn u cannot flame this/ na baba God work u cannot blame us/ its in vein wen hataz try aim us
