To many Rap listeners in Nigeria, this is the Favorite period of the year as we are always looking forward to The 9ja rap up by Psalmurai. He does this every years, he takes all the significant events that occurred in the past year and makes a beautiful rap song out of it. Unfortunately, rumor has it that he may be calling it quits after this year episode… I hope not because no one can do it better.
Samuel Usman Achema, better known by his stage name – Psalmurai, released his first official mixtape titled “Grind Finale(the mixtape is better than your album“, hosted by NOD in Dec 2010. He is a member of the Kalifate (Dasuki, Animus, and Psalmurai) now known as The Brand. He released another body of work in 2017: BLTN The EP, Produced and Hosted by MHP. He is also known for his yearly Rap-Ups where he picks a beat and blesses it with lyrics, talking about the main events of the year; “2019 Naija Rap Up” is the latest of the series.
