Veteran Nigerian rapper, Vector has talked about how collaborative efforts in the Nigerian music industry can yield positive results.
On the 19th of February 2021, a video clip of Vector’s interview session with The Beat 99.9 Fm was uploaded on the radio station’s YouTube channel. The rapper talked about how collaborative efforts by different Nigerian musicians can yield positive impacts and results for the music industry in the country. When asked about how he felt regarding the togetherness that was displayed by Nigerians during the #EndSars, Vector replied;
“Boom, I learned this in school in Unilag that the average African mind is based on communalism. We are a community that is why it is said that it takes the whole community to raise a child. So we must learn to communicate, cos for you to be a community, you must commune. Its simple, it’s that simple. So if we come together in the music community we will do greater things. I feel like a Davido and Wizkid can fill up a Wembley. And that will be historical beyond anything else. So we should take from that angle and start to learn.”
He further went on to talk about how such an idea made him squash his beef with MI. He said;
“Hence, why so for example it’s easy to get over me and M. Right cos at the end of the day there are a lot of things we need to lend our voices to while we are alive.”
Vector also talked about his early as a rapper trying to find his feet in the Nigerian music industry and how the Nigerian music industry has evolved from being controlled by Alaba marketers to artistes having control of how their music is been distributed across different streaming platforms.
