If you were listening to Rap music in Nigeria around the early 2000s’ you must have come across Mtrill. He was a household name in Port Harcourt at the time and was winning huge awards like channel O music video awards ahead of his Lagos counterparts like D-Banj and Tubaba just to mention a few. He is one that many rappers in PH looked up to at a certain point in their careers. M-trill and Rheymophoebus share similar values. They are seasoned emcees and entertainment entrepreneurs with similarities, such as their mutual love for hip-hop and an undying passion for seeing their industry grow and thrive.
The project was produced by Xblaze, recorded mixed and mastered by Ex-O, artistically directed by Psalmurai and A&R’d by Ms. Rae @3131 connect.
The Calibre EP is a celebration of life and the struggles of everyday living. The project was designed to touch fans and listeners in specific uplifting and introspective ways while still showing skills on the mic, but, more importantly, Calibre is also an Ode to B-Elect, a community leader in the Nigerian hip-hop industry that passed away a few months ago (RIP).

I would like to present to you one of Africa’s best female lyricists. I heard her verse on Khaligraph Jones Khali Cartel 2 Cypher, and there are only a few that can match her lyrical ability. After listening to Khali Cartel 2, I decided to follow up on her.
Xtatic whose real name is Gloria Edna Nyabange is a Super talented Kenyan Hip-Hop musician and songwriter. The former Sony Music Africa artist has been around for a while dropping songs with the likes of the South African Hip-hop top dog A.K.A under Sony music Africa but left the music scene to concentrate on life in general. She made a comeback just recently on Khaligraph Jone’s Khali Cartel and followed it up with her Tatu E.P which is made of 3 amazing songs featuring KDaGr8.
The songs on Tatu were actually just more personal to talk about my growth and all ever since Sony Music. I’m actually currently trying to put a team together. I had to let go of my last team because they really had a small, rather local, vision, given the type of music I’m yet to release. So I’m really trying to build at the moment. Get investment and all that, Xtatic said to me.
The E.P was released in August 2019
I often wonder why African female emcees struggle at Longevity. The likes of Sasha, Eva, Muna were once the darlings of African Hip-hop only to disappear from the radar a few years later. Could it be that the system is just not supportive enough of Female acts? We at mazifeanyidotcom believes she is one of the best things to happen to Hip-hop music and has the chance to be the best that ever did it in Africa if she can focus on putting out more materials. The skill and talent is unquestionable.

“Firetape is a series of many projects we will be put out moving forward, it’s a place where I express my deepest imaginations and my immediate reality. My team called this tape “The Champ” based on their experience grinding and winning with me every day, I never say NO to a challenge.
