If you were asked “Who are Nigeria’s best musicians right now?” who would be the first name to come to mind? We’re sure you’d consider Wizkid, who has had a phenomenal 2016, or Davido, who definitely isn’t far behind. Perhaps it would be Tiwa Savage, who just signed to Roc Nation, while the wildcard could even be Adekunle Gold, whose album has made Billboard’s Worldwide Chart for the second week running.
Well, rapper, Jesse Jagz, doesn’t think the answer to the question lies with any of the above. He believes that he, and his brother, M.I., are the two best musicians in the whole of Naija.
“Me and M.I combined, there’s no bloody musician, I don’t care who your father is, that can be better combined and artistically. How we rap is very different. M.I is very witty on a different level. You want to hear somebody rhyme with eight rhyme patterns, that’s why I’m here. Jagz is the person.”
He wasn’t trying to shade anybody though. The rapper went on to praise Ice Prince, Brymo and Falz, as rappers that he thinks are making a big impact in the country. Do you agree with Jesse’s (tooootally unbiased…) opinion about the best rappers in the country?
