Compulsorily staying at home is the hurt that keeps taking away yet the gift that keeps on giving.
Music stars all over the world are engaging in battles of hits against one another to encourage staying at home which has been such a thrill like an in-home concert experience – that’s the best we get while we are socially distancing. There have been Verzuz battles between artistes like Teddy Riley and Baby Face, Jill Scott and Erykah Badu. There have also been battles of Nigerian hits between producers Sarz v Shizzi and Masterkraft and Pheelz.
Head to Head, Toe to Toe and Hit for Hit, Nigerian Rappers M.I and Naeto C will be going at it in a 10 for 10 battle on Instagram Live on the 24th May at 8pm WAT / 9pm CAT. This was announced yesterday via MI Abaga’s Instagram.
While Naeto C may have been out of the game for a while, his timeless music remains. M.I, however is still very active in the music industry.
To us, it may be primarily for our entertainment. To them, it is to celebrate African Music History. Don’t forget to tune in and enjoy!
