Rapper, Olanrewaju Ogunmefun also known as Vector, has revealed that he did not pay for the Chieftaincy title bestowed upon him by his community, Lafiaji.
In an interview with Punch’s Sunday Scoop, Vector insisted that he did not pay to have the chieftaincy title conferred upon him.
Talking about the Chieftaincy title, the rapper;
“Among other things, it feels good that I am appreciated for bringing more positive attention to Lagos Island within my community. A Yoruba adage says ‘charity begins at home.’ It is a blessing to be recognised in one’s home.”
When asked if he paid for the title, he replied;
“No, that wasn’t my experience. I was summoned by the Lafiaji community in appreciation of my positive works in the community. I don’t think it makes sense to pay people to appreciate one. The title of ‘Amuludun’ is simply a title bestowed on someone who brings joy to the people.”

Talking about his song ‘Early Momo,’ the rapper stated that fans who were taken aback by his singing prowess in the song were unaware that he began his career as a singer.
“Many who are surprised are the ones who didn’t know my hit records like Follow Me Dey Go (with a remix featuring 2Baba). Singing has always been part of me. I have always said in interviews that I grew up musically in the church choir as a lead tenor singer. However, I welcome the new surprised music lovers with open arms.”
