Preacher Kingz and Sknny Get AQ Co-Signs as He Announces Hiatus

Must Read

Ace Nigerian lyricist Gilbert Bani, most commonly called AQ by Nigerian rap fans took to his Twitter to announce that he is taking time off dropping new albums to raise his kids, shortly after dropping his latest offering ‘God’s Engineering 2,’ to instant critical acclaim.”Do not expect anymore albums from me, I’ve done my part, it’s time to raise my kids,” the tweet read. On the same tweet Q handed the torch of hip hop to the new generation of Nigerian lyricists to take over from him; namely Port Harcourt City emcees Preacher Kingz and Sknny.

Both Sknny and Preacher Kingz have been carrying the torch of Southern Nigerian hip hop for a while now, Preacher Kingz releasing his highly critically acclaimed debut EP ‘Peer Pressure’ in 2021 and Sknny dropping his debut EP ‘YnC’ in 2020.

Sknny has been a Hennessy cypher Battle round contestant on the 2022 edition and also has performed at Battle raps across the country; at West Koast in the University of Port Harcourt and The Hip Hop Event in Lagos.

His latest release ‘The Vibe Pack,’ is still rocking streams on all streaming services. AQ had also endorsed Blaqbonez back in 2018 and his co-sign was a major factor in Blaq getting signed to Chocolate City and Bani’s 100 Crowns label in the same year, and now they are both part of the hip hop collective L.A.M.B, alongside M.I Abaga and Loose Kaynon.

Both Sknny and Preacher Kingz collaborated on the cypher-esque ‘Otis Freestyle’ in 2022 and delivered straight heat. Watch the freestyle below.
