Nigerian rapper, Fecko, returns from his hiatus after becoming a graduate to remind the hip-hop community that he is still very much a witty lyricist by freestyling on BAM instrumental, originally done by Jay-Z and Damian Marley.
With lines such as; “Like 100 naira notes shxt is looking pretty bad/wanna help the culture? then you gotta spin this jam” Fecko also urged the mainstream media to show more love to Nigerian rappers, so that the culture can continue to thrive just like their South African counterpart.
