Ikechukwu the rapper who became famous with ‘Wind Am Well’ has revealed that the local lyricists have become the Lords of the Manor and no longer those Nigerian rappers who do that in their American or British accent . Ikechukwu, has spent 10 years in the industry, and revealed that he would be celebrating it with a concert.
He said : “Not because it’s stronger than universal (English) rap, but it’s easier to understand; especially for the mass market. As a matter of fact, if I could rap like Phyno, I’d be rapping a little more like him.But I am who I am anyway. Indigenous rap is definitely dope, and it’s rocking right now, as well as opening more doors for a lot of people.’ Shedding light on what he has been up to recently, Ikechukwu stated, ‘I’ve just been taking a little time off; working on some stuff outside entertainment. I’ve also been taking some classes in Film Editing…I’ve taken a big dive into the movie world and TV. It’s like a 360° turn because that’s where I started from initially. I’ve done a couple of movies and TV series including Gidi Up.’
