RADIOPALAVA | Public service announcements from Modenine and Fecko


 Modenine, Nigerian MC extraordinaire (I would say top 10 in the English-speaking world for his stinging punchlines and prodigious wordplays) recently appeared on camera to inform the world that “a lot of people are rapping, but people are not hiphop.” To which most listeners - and all of kpop - would respond, “Uh…yeah.” Rap is now an art form that anyone can use for any purpose, appropriated out of hiphop culture to enhance everything from standard pop music to radio advertisements to memorization devices in schools. Modey has always been a strong advocate for the consciousness and artistry of rap within hiphop, especially through the “Boys Are Not Smiling” network of MCs in northern Nigeria, and he insists on the integrity of his music to the exclusion of “commercial” music, whose meaning is secondary (or tertiary) to catchiness and marketability. My favorite line: “People will make noise that, ‘Modenine, you don’t have too many followers,’ yeah, that’s because I keep on blocking people who talk out of turn,” that is, people who are not coming correct when they talk about rap, hiphop, and Mode’s work.

Although he comes across as elitist, Modenine is making an important criticism of rap’s lack of rigor and therefore lack of artistry that applies across the board, whether in Naija, the US, or Korea. It’s expounded on in the song Raplogic by Fecko, another Nigerian MC who teams up here with Kaduna’s best, Pherowshuz and Terry tha Rapman (a confederate of Modenine and co-leader of BANS): “What’s rap without logic? The answer is in the trash can: rubbish.” For Fecko and the Boys Are Not Smiling crew, rap requires the construction of an argument about the world and a positioning within the world - otherwise it isn’t really rap, and it may not even be worth listening to.

The conflict between speaking truth (Build, Respect, Represent) as the imperative of hiphop culture on the one hand and pulling a profit with catchy commercial tunes on the other is one that I heard MCs describe and lament repeatedly during my research in Nigeria. The BANS movement takes a clear stance on the conflict, and because of the reputations of its leaders, it can provide a space for up-and-coming rappers to develop their skills without sacrificing artistic integrity to the commercial impulse. Indeed, Modenine and Fecko argue that rap separated from its cultural roots cannot be considered rap at all - they and others have described such music as “watered down,” “dumbed down,” and “diluted.” With this critique, Boys Are Not Smiling has issued a challenge to Nigerian musicians who rap without living hiphop’s imperative: prove your skill in “raplogic,” or get out.

MUSIC | Zubz The Last Letta – Extras

 Acclaimed and respected Hip Hop Artist/Composer/Songwriter Zubz The Last Letta has finally released Album Artwork and his first single from his upcoming album, DragonLion_FullCircle.

Taking a different route to the standard album artwork approach, Zubz has elected to use a striking graphic as the new album ID for DragonLion_FullCircle. The graphic depicts a dragon entwined with a lion all within a circular shape.

Mozambican painter Ricardo Pinto Jorge was tasked by Zubz to create an original piece inspired by the album. Ricardo’s brief was broad; to create something memorable and typically Zubz.
 “Of course there is a literal depiction of the album title in the artwork” says Zubz, “but there are also less obvious depictions. The colours represent the countries where I was born, raised and am based; Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa. The Yin –Yang looking form that the dragon and the lion take, speaks to balance.”

This balance is alluded to again by painter Ricardo Pinto Jorge, who says being a pilot and an artist gives him a sense of equilibrium. “I am highly influenced by street art, pop art and modern art. I vastly employ self-taught stencil techniques. My topics focus on daily pop culture, politics and history, daily occurrences, life experiences, stories I hear, discussions I have with friends and acquaintances, dreams and nightmares as well as ideas and concepts I come up with. I find inspiration in life and my stimulus, music.”

The song is called Extras and is defined by Zubz as “Peaceful Protest Music”, an ode to the marginalized. “I want the song to feel like pace, without racing. I want it to seem loud without shouting. This song is about trying to capture the mood of a fed-up people carrying a desire to effect change.”

Zubz debuted the song live in front of thousands at this years’ Back To The City festival, the biggest Hip Hop platform in South Africa and had the crowd shouting back the catchy chorus by the song’s end.

Asked about the song, the rapper reveals, “I’m speaking to my core audience here saying this song is not about anyone else but you!” says Zubz “You are the star in your life’s movie and have no business living like you’re just an extra in it”

Extras is a well written song citing references as serious as protests like the Occupy Movement to less serious banter such as soccer. All of this is encapsulated in the metaphor of Film.

The musical backdrop provided by Zimbabwean Artist/Composer Simba Tagz, is a fierce drone accented with triumphant horn-blasts in the chorus.

Bigfoot & Rae Presents The Big Rae EP

The story of the Big Rae began weirdly as a couple naked acapellas made their way from the blistering cold of a London winter to the sweltering heat of Lagos in the belly of an unreliable hard-disk in 2010; an immigrants journey in reverse.

In the hands of genre-defying producer Bigfoot (of the Micworx team), Mister Rae's (of Str8 Buttah) orphan vocals lost to their humble boom-bap beginnings, were clothed in haunting strings, melancholy keys and victorious synths and rode out into the world banging percussion. While the message remained the same the music gave it new urgency.First, in the form of "Brittany Murphy" released online in late 2011 and now finally with the EP as a whole.

Expect The Big Rae to get bigger and better with another EP expected before the year is up and a full length album in 2013. You are officially welcome to join The Big Rae's voyage. As every proverbial journey begins... what you are about to listen to now is that humble first step.

Terry tha Rapman Presents World Domination mixtape


“World Domination is basically about the BANS Movement. The theme World Domination is about doing anything you set your mind to. If you can conceive it, you can achieve it, not by violence not by force but by silent power moves”- Terry Tha Rapman.

Ladies and gentlemen it is finally here, World Domination mixtape by Terry Tha Rapman. Terry conceived this mixtape last year to show to all and prove to some that he is still one of Nigeria’s best rappers. After listening to World Domination no doubt will linger in your heart that Terry Tha Rapman is one of the best to ever grab the mic. The rapper dedicates this mixtape to all his fans who have made nothing out of something, which is his own story, the story of #BANS (Boyz Are Not Smiling).It is also meant to encourage people who are going through tough times and are being held back by the harsh conditions surrounding them. World Domination is about defining your own life, your own path and your own destiny. It’s about #BANS. It’s about World Domination.

World Domination features a collection of established acts (Mode 9, Pherowshuz) and upcoming acts like Blaq Bonez, Boogey and others.It is Terry’s way of respecting the past and acknowledging the future. Terry Tha Rapman has started work in his next album (tentatively titled B.A.N.S 2.0) and will be releasing the first official single in a matter of weeks.

World Domination is a product of joy, happiness, sadness and hard work. It’s Terry’s utmost desire that you enjoy it to the fullest.

Graffiti in Nigeria: A genre of Artistic Expression or Advertisement?


One fateful Monday morning, I was sitting in a car on my way to the Mainland.

Bored and stuck in the world-famous horrible Lagos traffic, I couldn’t help but stare out of the window. Then I saw the inscription crudely scrawled on the wall ‘LIVE AND WORK IN CANADA…CALL SO AND SO NUMBER’ (all in caps and boldly written with a chalk).

Several questions kept running through my mind. I asked myself “are Nigerians now this desperate to leave the country? Is this ‘Advertising’ in every sense of the word or is this our own version of Graffiti? ”. For some reason, I did find it quite funny and interesting; hence I had to take a snap shot of the scene immediately, thanks to the camera app on my Samsung phone. I’ve had this phone for such a long time that, if it were human, it would have been Methuselah. (Laughs). But jokes apart, that picture actually inspired this article you’re reading now.


According to Wikipedia, ‘Graffiti is writing or drawings scribbled, scratched, or sprayed illicitly on a wall or other surface in a public place. Graffiti may also express underlying social and political messages and a whole genre of artistic expression is based upon spray paint graffiti styles.’

In the mega city, Lagos, where I grew up and still reside, writing on walls with chalks and charcoals is now very common, and it seems to be our own little version of Graffiti. However, 90% of these drawings and writings have now become a cheaper means of advertising various brands, products and services on the streets. I believe the idea is to pass any message or information across to the public as quickly as possible. Take for instance the inscription on the wall in the picture above.

One thing I could pull from memory was that I’ve seen several other types of drawings on walls, especially when I once visited my home town in the Eastern part of Nigeria. Unlike the ones in Lagos, these inscriptions pointed commentaries on Nigerian life and exuded self-expression. With a keen eye, I looked deeper at the drawings and I could see the story of my people starring me right in the face. “Apparently, the Ministry of Tourism have been sleeping on a gold mine.” I said to myself.

Does the Graffiti art-form really exist in Nigeria? Well my answer is ‘Yes’ if you ask me. We may use chalks and charcoals instead of the spray paints, but it all boils down to artistic expression, isn’t it? This culture shouldn’t be only familiar with the hip-hop community. Of course, it’s an important element in Hip-Hop. And I acknowledge organisations like WAPI in association with the British Council that have managed to create awareness about the art-form across Africa.

On a final note, whether Graffiti in Nigeria is a genre of artistic expression or an advertising platform, one thing I know is that, the art-form has always been here and will continue to be for a very long time. We just have to embrace it more with open arms.
