Opinion: Why Flavour is a Bigger and Better Artist Than 9ice

How Flavour being a bigger artist than 9ice trended on social media tonight.

If you have seen or read about the trending topic on the social Media lately this evening and have been wondering why, here's the gist in summary.

9ice and flavour according to Spotify

Many individuals have taken to their social media handles to post about flavor and 9ice. The two are Nigerian artists who have achieved a lot of successes and awards to their names. But as celebrities who have a lot of fan bases, their supporters have come out to make some claims on whose the best among the two.

Most of the debates were centered on who's got the best home awards and more of tribal recognition in terms of their music styles. We all know that flavour is so much of Igbo languages in his styles of music, while 9ice on the other hand is much more of Yoruba language.

How today’s debate about the bigger artiste between 9ice and Flavour ended in a tribal fuss is the reason international validation will always be a thing. So you won’t come here tomorrow to say Wizkid makes music only for people in South West.

Some users believe 9ice “Alapomeji” is the better and bigger artiste because not only did his debut album and debut single become a household song among Nigerians in the late 2000s, it went across boarders bagging him prestigious awards like the UK MOBO, Mamas, Hip Hop Awards (now known as Heavies) just to name some while other weeps are of the opinion that Flavour is the bigger artistes judging by the fact that between 9ice and him, Mr. N’Albania is still the trendy musician, generating more streams and releasing more hit songs till date.

Others argue that there is a difference between the terms ‘bigger’ and ‘better’—saying one could be bigger and the other better— but not both, while a few users champion 9ice as the bigger and better artiste yet quite a number of verdicts favor Flavour as the bigger and better musician.

For me, flavour have been the bigger artist, while 9ice is much more of a better artist.

Do you agree with me too?
