If you cannot call Sarkodie a local rapper then don't call us local rappers - Reminisce

Nigerian rapper Reminisce has expressed his dissatisfaction about people referring to him and a number of other rappers as indigenous rappers for rapping with their dialect.

In an exclusive interview with HipHop World Magazine, when asked to talk on how the endorsement has been coming for him and his fellow indigenous rappers, Reminisce expressed his dissatisfaction about the local rapper tag.

He said, "Stop calling us indigenous rappers there is nothing like that, a rapper is a rapper, calling myself, Phyno, Olamide, Seriki, BaseOne, Lil Kesh and couple of others coming up local rapper is a way of suppressing or make us feel inferior, because Sarkodie is a rapper no one refers to him as indigenous rapper. If you cannot call him a local rapper then don't call any of us local or indigenous rapper. Over the years, we've been able to overturn the rap game, we've been able to change perception as regards if you cannot rap in English you cannot be a rap god or king and it's been a collective effort. Things has really change people can now know who the real hiphop guys are unlike before when if you can rap in English you won't get endorsement. And we feel very proud to be the rave of the moment".
