Yoruba Rap Is On A Roll: Olamide, Kesh, Reminisce, Chinko Ekun, Base One Raise Eko Hotel Roof At #OLIC2
Five years after the death of Dagrin, the Yoruba rap music genre seems to be going through its strongest phase ever with no less than three bona fide superstar mainstream artists coming from the genre.
If the audience at #OLIC2 organised by Right Ent, Achievas Ent & YBNL knew all about Olamide, Lil Kesh and Reminisce already, they certainly found out more about Chinko Ekun and Base One on Sunday night as the latter two produced superb performances that left the live audience and those watching on TV impressed by their lyrics and delivery.
For upcoming artists in the Yoruba rap genre, #OLIC2 may just have been the “it” moment when the indigenous genre attained super genre status.
