Nigerian hip hop artist, Akanbi Bamidele Brett, better known by his stage name superboy Cheque, has addressed why people think hip hop is dead in Nigeria.
The Penthauze Music rapper Superboy Cheque has sent a message to those who think hip hop is dead, claiming that they have just failed to keep up with the times.
On Monday, October 11th, 2021, he made his opinion known on Twitter.
According to Cheque, People who claim that Hip Hop is dead in Nigeria do so because they fail to see that things have changed and still want to rap like they did in the early 2000s and 2010s.
