Celebrities Behaving Badly: Notjustok.com’s Controversial ’10 Most Gifted Rappers’ List Incites GODWON v Sinzu Twitter Fight

Share

I must confess that when I saw the Notjustok.com ’10 Most Gifted Rappers’ in Nigeria feature, I just rolled my eyes and thought, “Demola what happened?” Unfortunately, (Co-owner) OvieO is taking the heat for this list. I don’t know how you can have “most gifted” rapper list and not have a name like Jesse Jagz as #1, Vector following closely at #2, Sinzu at #3, Phyno at #4 and then the rest.

“Most Gifted,” to me, has nothing to do with being a commercially successful rapper or a rapper with a hugely wide fan base. It is about an innate talent that flows in the bloodstream. The type where it is truly effortless. Jesse Jagz tops that list all day, everyday, and then the ones listed in my book above.

In any event, Notjustok releases this list and apparently I am not the only one who felt there was a problem with the list. The public and artists alike have challenged Nojustok for the list, while a few have chosen to even fight each other on Twitter highways. See the heated exchange with rapper Godwon and Sinzu over the NJO list.

  1. I absolutely agree with you. When I saw the list as well, I was certainly disappointed that Jesse Jagz didn't make the list. He's talented and gifted, PERIOD. Then again, the list is based on someone's opinion and everyone is entitled to have one. There will never be anything like a perfect list.

    1. LOL! Indeed at FreeNaijalyrics. There will never be a perfect list. Thanks for commenting and I hope you are doing well.

      Cheers,
