Yung6ix Says “He’s The Only Rapper In Nigeria Right Now”
Popular Nigerian artiste, Onome Onokohwomo, better known as Yung6ix, has said he is currently the only rapper in the country and that no other artiste is doing rap music.
The raving Hip Hop star, who made this known during a show on Hip TV, further added that “it’s a fact” that there is no rap artiste like him in Nigeria.
His words: “I am the only rapper in the country right now. I can’t see anybody doing modern day rap music apart from myself. It’s just the truth. It’s just the fact. They don’t do it like I do it.”
The rapper further disclosed that being a native of the south-south region of Nigeria has been the most challenging thing for him in his career.
“Coming from south-south Nigeria has been the most challenging stuff because when people want to do anything, they keep the south-south out of it,” he said.
“When they want to give awards, they keep us out of it. First of all, which other rapper from south-south has been doing this for the past ten years?
“I had a chance because I came into the industry under the right record label.”
Speaking on the rise and growing influence of the Afrobeats genre, he said:
“When we started, the industry was not on this level. We are past the point where Afrobeats is so big. We are about to conquer the world.”
