Nigerian rappers not celebrated enough – Nuno Zigi
Fast-rising Nigerian rapper, Ayadinuno Obiora, professionally known as Nuno Zigi, has joined voices with other music mavericks appealing to music enthusiasts and artistes to collectively reverse the fading glory of the rap scene in Nigeria.
As the indigenous rapper gears to release his own debut EP next week dubbed, No Day Off (NDO), he hopes that his counterparts would be inspired by it to also continue releasing exceptional rap records.
Talking to Weekend Beats, the maverick said, “The Nigerian rap scene has been presumed to be dead for some years now but I beg to differ, I would love to see rappers be given their flowers and be celebrated just like foreign rappers.
“My debut EP, No Day Off, was inspired by the environment I grew up in and the accumulated experience as a boy from Onitsha. The hustle mentality of staying committed to your grind daily is what I’ve always expressed in my music from the days of my 2020 single IYOO. My EP will change the game and I know that for a fact.”
Nuno Zigi who exited his former label, Penthauze music, which is piloted by the Igbo superstar, Phyno, after his contract elapsed, started music professionally, in 2011, while still in secondary school, he got his big break in 2018 with the release of his critically acclaimed rap single 8th mood.
