Reminisce Defends His ‘Local Rappers’ In Twitter Rant

share on:

Reminisce‘s latest hit Local Rappers on which he featured Phyno and Olamide seems to have raised quite some dust. The rapper, however, seems to have gotten fed up with all the upheaval surrounding the song and his indigenous style of rap as he went on a Twitter rant to clear the air.

He demanded an answer for the backlash seeing as – in a previous song with Modenine – he had used the lines ‘Oyi Rappers’ and there was no controversy.

His currently buzzing Local Rappers single has been criticized, however, by some who felt the song has tendencies to downplay the relevance of wordplay and intelligence in Nigerian hip hop. Although we don’t quite agree with those persons.

Reminisce switched up his rant as he said people are scared and angry because indigenous rap is gaining ground as opposed to westernized forms of the art down here in Nigeria, which was previously the norm.

He reiterated that he has no problem with ‘English Rappers’ and the collaborations he has done with them show this.

He finished his rant by challenging anyone having a problem with him to step out and say it plainly.

His friend and collaborator, Olamide, also tweeted that everybody is allowed to do any form of music and that differences in style should not lead to hate; a tweet Reminisce supported with a retweet.
