Rapper M.l. Abaga quickly responded to Wizkid’s remarks about rap music by advising rappers to concentrate on their craft and reiterating that the genre will continue to expand.
Recall that Wizkid recently stated in an interview with 10 magazines that the Afrobeat genre of music is the new pop and that the rap genre is dead.
“Afrobeats is the new pop, sold two million copies in America off of one song! Even some American artists don’t have a diamond record.
“If I’m being honest, I don’t listen to any other genre of music anymore. don’t listen to rap that shit is boring to me. It’s dead now, it’s tired. These guys do the same shit, rap on the same beats and the same flows.” Wizkid said.
M.l Abaga responded in a post published on Twitter on Friday.
He said: “The energy around HIP-HOP right now feels right.. I know most rappers are still not the most popular yet.. but right now is the time for us to focus on the craft.. just keep getting better.. this year we did so well as a genre and next year we grow!!!!”
