I was gonna write on looking good on a tight budget which should be like a sequel to my last article on financial management during recession. While I might not a huge fan of rap music or music general, music artistes like V.E.C always catch my attention.
This #Lafiaji guy, Olanrewaju Ogunmefun, is from Ogun state and has lived his life in Ogun and Lagos states, with a major part of it in Lagos. Regarded as the King of Freestyle in Nigeria especially after he did 2 and a half hours of freestyle on Rhythm FM Freestyle Fury more than a year ago.
King Kong is a self-acclaimed barrack boy and a graduate of Philosophy, from the University of Lagos. This probably attracted me to him and since I watched his interview on Youtube with HFtv on their internet show DA CHAT, I have been a strong follower of Vector tha Piper.
His view about life and music stuns me every time I hear him talk and even as I would not love to go into his many diss issues with other artistes like YCEE and Baba Hafusa, who is another musician I admire, his lyrics and music in general always have had me disturbing everyone including myself.
King Kong’s beat and lyrics are off the hook and the fact that he featured the likes of Reminisce and Phyno in the remix underlines this guy’s passion. Ever since I heard one of his new works “EMI”, my love for him has multiplied. EMI is a rap song that fits everything particularly with the beat that I just don’t understand the inspiration behind it. Not forgetting one is most popular hits, “Angeli”, where he featured the Special Adviser to the Oyo state Governor, 9ice.
Vector has won several awards since he broke into limelight in 2008/9 and they include Best rap single and lyricist on the roll at the 2015 Headies, awards he earlier won in 2012. He also has awards and nominations from NMVA, Nigeria Entertainment Awards, and DYNAMIX youth Awards.
In addition to be a rapper, David is also a poet, producer, songwriter, and is the voice behind the 2009 Sprite radio commercial. Besides, he’s got 2 album, 2 mixtapes and a couple of singles any real music lover would always enjoy.
One cant really cover V.E.C is a one-page article but one thing about this fellow gunner is that he is a one of a kind regardless of what anyone thinks.
Did I tell you that he is also a businessperson? He launched the Inoki Republic movement for T-shirts and Snap-back hats. Would really appreciate getting one of them tho’. King Kong holla back.
