Check Out 18 Nigerian Rappers Who Are Famous For Rapping In Igbo Language

Though rap was not really popular in Nigeria many years back, there were a few Nigerian rappers who still made music then. Pidgin English was predominantly used in most of their songs, probably so the message they were trying to pass could reach every Nigerian, irrespective of tribe.

But later on, rappers started making use of their indigenous languages like Yoruba and Igbo in their songs.

Nigga Raw is credited with popularizing Igbo rap, though he may not necessarily be the first ever Igbo rapper, as 2shotz and Biglo were old school rappers who also made us of Igbo language.

In recent times, Igbo rappers are now very common, unlike it used to be back then. However, some of them are still up-and-coming artistes. This article focuses on famous rappers who have made a name for themselves by rapping in Igbo.
