Coming straight out one of the most livest hoods in Lagos Nigeria is a rapper known as “Chase’N”. Chase’N has been in the rap scene for quite a while but due to the fact that Afro-beat has become Nigeria’s leading Sound, rappers often find themselves in the dark searching for some attention. In the past, Rap and Ragga were in the fore and were described as Nigeria’s main sound but things took a drastic turn in the last few years. But trust me, Nigeria has never fallen short of dope rappers and lyricists.
Okota Lagos is home to some of the finest rappers in Nigeria.
The city which is located on Lagos Mainland in the district of Oshodi Local Government is known for it’s high crime rate, a massive population, and low-income neighborhoods could be described as an abode for middle-class Nigerians quite far from the plush and fancy lifestyle on Lagos Island.
CHASE’N whose real names are (Agbi Nelson) originally from Edo State was born and raised in Okota. He decides to drop some impressive bars on the famous Casanova (so Brooklyn) instrumental to describe the challenges of living in Okota Lagos. Chasen, originally from Edo state, though born and raised in the streets of Lagos, is looking to put out a mix-tape which may include adding verses to famous Afro-beat hits like Kizz Daniels Fvck you and Tekno’s Better Instrumentals which were used for online beat challenges this year.
