Veteran Nigerian rapper, Mode 9 will not be joining the league of ‘local rappers’ as he has revealed he won’t be ‘spitting’ any rhymes in his native language, Yoruba.
In a recent chat with Vanguard Newspaper, the rapper admits that while he can rap in English Language effortlessly, such can not be said of his abilities to rap in Yoruba.
“No, I can’t do that, you know why? If there are people doing something and they can do it better than you, there is no point in doing it too because they are already way ahead of you.”
‘It is harder for me to write a Pidgin English song than a normal English song. I can rap in English effortlessly. I don’t just write anything, I try to be clever with words like when I said, ‘They be bungalow brains, nothing upstairs;’ it’s a punch line, but it was done in Pidgin English,’
