In recent times, Reminisce, Olamide and Phyno have been labeled or tagged indigenous rapper or local rapper as the case may be. Reminisce in a recent interview with Hip-TV rubbished the fact that people could actually see and call Sarkodie of Ghana a (international)rapper then why should they tag the likes of him a local or indigenous rapper. Read reminisce statement below:
“Stop calling us indigenous rappers there is nothing like that, a rapper is a rapper, calling myself, Phyno, Olamide, Seriki, BaseOne, Lil Kesh and couple of others coming up local rapper is a way of suppressing or make us feel inferior, because Sarkodie is a rapper no one refers to him as indigenous rapper. If you cannot call him a local rapper then don’t call any of us local or indigenous rapper.
Over the years, we’ve been able to overturn the rap game, we’ve been able to change perception as regards if you cannot rap in English you cannot be a rap god or king and it’s been a collective effort. Things has really change people can now know who the real hiphop guys are unlike before when if you can rap in English you won’t get endorsement. And we feel very proud to be the rave of the moment”
