Early this year, Yoruba born farmer turned singer king rapsodi released a song with the well known delta based pidgin english rapper, erigga. Titled Damage, the singer showed us his vocal strength and singing abilities with a soft chorus and witty lines by the warri born Erigga. Talking about God’s time, God’s blessings, haters and how people damage each other, it was in general a beautiful and interesting song.
Before this song, the singer had tried to break into the industry by releasing an EP on streaming platforms and hoping to catch listeners and grow his career from there. Needless to say, even while the songs were good, it was a subpar project as it failed to hit streaming numbers and give the singer his hoped for push.In his words, King Rapsodi says: “I put out an EP without having enough fans to stream it’. It is one valuable lesson I have learnt in my career so far. When it happened, I was disappointed so I went back into the studio to create something new for nigerians. That was the single with Erigga, and thank God, it was a success.” Since releasing that single back in june, 2021, the singer has hit a collective number of streams totaling over a million on boomplay and other platforms. Courageous, independent and creative. Those words describe the tenacious young man, who juggles between farming, playing football and making music
