History of hiphop in Nigeria


Afro Hip hop in Nigeria dates back to the late eighties and early nineties. The first place hip hopgained popularity in Nigeria was in Lagos, Nigeria. During this time (1980s), Nigeria was under a military governorship.


Who started hip hop in Nigeria?


To truly appreciate Hip-hop not just as a genre but a culture, one may have to go back in time to 46 years ago, 1973 to be precise when the likes of DJ Kool Herc and Afrika Bambaataapioneered an art form that will go on to become a global phenomenon.


Is rap from Africa?

Rapping can be traced back to its Africanroots. Centuries before hip-hop music existed, the griots of West Africa were delivering stories rhythmically, over drums and sparse instrumentation.


So you see my fellow countrymen and women..it's our craft we need to embrace it , wholeheartedly.
