5 Top Reasons Why Reminisce’s ‘Baba Hafusa’ Album Is Very Important

Reminisce Baba Hafusa

8 days from today, Reminisce will release his third studio album tagged Baba Hafusa. The album follows his first two highly rated albums Book Of Rap Stories and Alaga Ibile.

Reminisce is one of the few Nigerian rappers that’s been able to make multimillion Naira from indigenous rap music. We take a look at 5 reasons why the album is very important for his genre of music this year especially.

Olamide, Reminsce, Phyno 1 new

Indigenous rap music is on a slow demise:

Many may say it is too early to tell but the effect indigenous rap content has on Nigerian rap music has reduced in the past months and may reduce even further if Reminice’s forth coming doesn’t meet a critical acclaim. The last two indigenous albums released in the country has ended up at mediocre as best.

During this time, Olamide released the worst album of his career yet, Street OT while Phyno joined him to release 2 Kings which has been rated poorly by both set of fans (Yoruba and Igbo).

Stylist, Sarah Ofili famously demanded Phyno refund the money she spent in purchasing the album as only 1 of the 10 tracks is worth another spin. The last indigenous rap music we see top the chart is Reminisce’s Tesojue released more than 8 months ago. His album has to bridge this gap by turning out smashing hit singles…

Go through the pages for 4 more solid reasons

local rappers artLocal Rappers is not a successful attempt

Reminisce, Olamide and Phyno drew blood when they released Tyrone produced Local Rappers where they slammed rappers that have embraced the art of rap music. 36NG reported exclusively that a sect of rappers is unhappy about the mockery of their art (Wordplay, punchlines…). Modenine, T.R and A-Q expressed their displeasure although Reminisce and Modenine are on good terms – professionally.

The song himself didn’t prove successful till date and has such didn’t stress their claim that “Local Rapping” is now the big deal.

Local Rappers will now appear on Reminisce’s Baba Hafusa album and can be counted as a -1 already as reviews on the song isn’t favorable. The trio appear unconcerned and have shot the video for Local Rappers… Hopefully “street” will take over when it drops.

Olamide, Lil Kesh, Phyno

People are getting bored

Fans of Reminisce may not be getting bored of his music but his counterparts may need to watch what they release henceforth. This is a case for Olamideand Phyno.

The two allies may be making millions every week but at some point, Sisqo made millions every week, he doesn’t anymore. Law of diminishing returns. The two released a 10 tracker album barely 20 days ago and it already looks as if it never happened. No lead single, no catchy song nor memory left after several listens. Even Wizkid couldn’t save the project.

With Reminisce’s album coming soon, he needs to excite people about the whole indigenous rap music again or else it may be time to give up and leave all hope on Lil Kesh.

Phyno
We haven’t had a solid rap album since No Guts No Glory

The last solid rap album to be released in Nigeria is courtesy Phyno. The Enugu born rapper ran a sprint race to Nigerian music forefront with several boom blast singles off his debut album No Guts No Glory (released March 20, 2014) but ever since, we haven’t had a solid rap project in Nigeria.

M.I Abaga may be regarded as the best rapper in the land but his Chairman album didn’t prove this, during this time, Olamide has also pushed through with his fourth album Street OT. Ice Prince managed to release a forgettable E.P which is now in the trash can.

Who will save Nigerian rap music? Over to you Reminisce..
