Best Top 10 Fuck You challenges

Over the past couple of weeks, Nigerian pop artiste Kizz Daniel initiated a frenzy of diverse musical expressions on the instrumental of his latest single “Fuck you”.

The original song narrates kizz Daniel’s sad experience with a woman he loved but she turned out to be quite unfaithful, telling this story over the captivating instrumental produced by the Uber talented Young John. After the song was released on all platforms , Kizz Daniel uploaded a video of the song on his instagram with the caption “lets tell a story, I’ll start” , followed by two other parts to the video, and that was the inception of what has become one of the biggest musical trends of 2019.

Other artistes followed up with their videos as well, the likes of CDQ, Dremo, Tiwa Savage, Ycee, Simi, Seyi Shay, MI Abaga and a host of other artistes in the industry telling their stories over the instrumental, with the hashtag #fvckyouchallenge. Even Pasuma had a story to tell *laughs*. Comedians like Lasisi Elenu, AY, Broda shaggy, Bovi and AY also jumped on the challenge.

It was also a great platform to discover the less popular artistes, as kizz Daniel reposted entries from them on his social media pages as well. Though it seems like the challenge isn’t over yet, from the numerous versions of the fuck you challenge released, a number of them stood out for us and thus based on the following criteria: Creativity, Melody for singers, flow and lyricism for rappers and lastly, Video Quality, We pick our Best Top 10 Fuck You challenges.

10. Byno – Byno is one artiste who has been around for quite a while and I’m sure some of you might remember him from Nigerian Idols in 2012. He released a very interesting verse on the fuck you beat as well. He talked about how everyone was judgmental about his woman, and even if they claim that she used to be a whore, he would always stand by her because everyone has a past. He also has an amazing voice and he definitely showed that on this song with the lovely harmonies and melodies.

9. Vector – The verse from rap power house, Vector, was rather comical but had a very interesting approach to it. He basically talks about the irony of the situation because in his own opinion, everyone is having sex with everyone. He played around on the beat and used the words “all of una” a number of times to drive his point home.

8. Eva Alordiah – Eva delivered a superb verse on the Fuck you Instrumental while telling a very descriptive and sexual story about an emotionally abusive ex. She delivered this with great attitude, and the flow was just superb. It felt like it was more than a video, it felt like it was a performance, an energetic and compelling performance.

7. Tiwa Savage – This seemed like a rather personal verse from Tiwa Savage. While murdering the instrumental with her unmistakable vocals, she talked about a man that she helped when he was on the come up and even paid for his trip to Canada, but he left her for a light skin woman after he made it. The video was a lyric video but the verse still had people debating who she was really talking about on it.

6. Seyi Shey – Another personal entry from a female artiste. On this verse she talked about a certain ‘sister’ who took her man. It got interesting when she dropped the line “you know I am not savage I dey pay my bills” and fans decided to connect the dots on this one. Did Tiwa savage take her man? Was this related to our starboy? Hmm *shrugs*

5 Hotyce – Rapper Hotyce came through on this challenge with fire bars about the state of things in the country, the shambolic elections held, and the recent collapse of the building in Lagos Island that resulted in the deaths of many. On this track he directed his fuck you to the government, saying “I’m with the masses and we got our middle fingers up”. A really dope one.

4. Broda shaggi – On a lighter note, Broda shaggi, delivered a rather humorous verse on this instrumental. Infusing his fuji style on the track by using his vocals as well as a talking drum which he also played on it. The video for this was directed by Avalon Okpe. It was clean, interesting and it’s also guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

3. Toby Grey – Toby Grey delivered something that many people, especially females in the industry, can relate to. On her challenge, she talked about the way women are usually pressured into having s*x by certain gate keepers of the music industry in exchange for favors to help them blow up. Though she might have fallen short on her melodies a little bit on this challenge, she definitely scores points for creativity. Kudos Toby.

2. Ladipoe – On this, Poe raps from both the lady’s and guy’s perspective. He really showed his lyrical dexterity, dropping lines like “…always correcting my grammar, but today I’ll teach the lesson/ Today, a missing period is how I’m ending this sentence” and “you claim you’re a king but COSON owes you royalties” He gets good points for creativity, Flow and Lyricism as well as great video quality.

1.Ruggedman – This definitely tops our list on the best Fuck you challenges. Rugged man could not have picked a better time to speak out on the police brutality with the recent wave of madness from officers of the Nigerian Police especially SARS. He does this with supreme lyrical quality and the video for this was also great. Ruggedy Baba definitely did this right.

Let us know who you think should have been on this list.
