‘I’m Nigeria’s best chance of a rapper winning Grammy’ — Ladipoe boosts
Mavin Records’ artiste, Ladipo Eso, trending as Ladipoe, has boasted that he’s Nigeria’s best chance of a rapper winning a Grammy.
Until the win of Burna Boy, winner of the 2021 ‘Best Global Music Album’ category, no Nigerian rapper has won the Grammy award.
But in a video clip on his Instagram page on Friday, where he could be seen free-styling, Ladipoe said he’s capable of being the first rapper to bring the prestigious award home.
This he said he would achieve with his level of diligence.
His freestyle went thus;
“I’m still Nigeria’s best chance of a rapper winning a Grammy. For now their first rapper to ever attend the Grammys,” he raps.
“Ain’t no two ways. Flights every two days. Because chasing a bag means living out of a suitcase.
“Not the type to brag and compliments give me toothaches. I’m all about the plaque like platinum dey toothpaste.
“I need a Nike deal for my pen game. Lord knows all of my verses should be in King James. I do this for my city that is smiling in pain. For us patience no be virtue, it’s just somebody’s name.”
“My advice to those waiting. Always bring the hard drive, there’s something worth saving.
“Ambition in my archives I no dey fear failing. Got the grace of God on me coz my mumsi stays praying.”
Ladipoe is the first rapper to sign a deal with Mavin Records, a music label founded by Don Jazzy, in 2017.
