Top 10 Hottest Northern Rapper Right Now


Hip Hop is by far not the most popular genre in Nigeria. This is not a thing of surprise, as majority of Nigerians love to party hard to heavy ‘gbedus’ and so most of the songs on heavy rotation are mostly pop songs with perceived ‘commercial value’.

This does not mean that Nigerians do not listen to Hip Hop or other less popular genres of music, as a matter of fact, Hip Hop in Nigeria has massively evolved over the years, becoming more popular and garnering a decent following.

Also, Nigeria’s official language is the English language but not everyone speaks or understands that.

This is due to the fact that English is not native, and Nigeria constitutes over two hundred and fifty tribes, which speak a variety of languages.

English is therefore taught in schools through formal education, but many Nigerians do not have access to formal education.

As a matter of fact, Nigeria has a high illiteracy rate with over 1 third of her population uneducated.

This a huge problem on a bigger scale, but as it relates to the music, it poses a problem for musicians in Nigeria, who consequently, have to be very smart about the language used in their music to appeal to a larger audience.

Unlike pop music, whose audience cares less about lyrics and more about banging beats, rap is quite the opposite.

Rappers are judged by what they say and how they say it, and thus the language they use is very much important.

The most popular native languages in Nigeria areHausa, Yoruba and Igbo and quite a number of rappers have shown through their art that pens are mightier than swords and they are lords of words, twisting and bending rhymes while telling stories in these indigenous languages.

Today we took a look at some of the hottest Nigerian rappers who rap in the Hausa language which is native to Northern Nigeria as well as other African countries like Niger, Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon, Ivory coast, Togo and Sudan.

You should also note that these rappers do a good job rapping in English as well.
