Ceeboi’s contest challenge with Make Way heats up
Following the release of his anticipated single and its vidoe, Make Way, on Friday, World Wave Empire’s artiste, Timileyin Olayinka Famuagun, also known as Ceeboi, has declared himself the fastest and best rapper in the music industry, just as he hinted that he would welcome a rap challenge from any rapper keen on contesting with him.
Ceeboi, who appeared to have drawn the ire of some entertainment buffs over his declaration, stated in a recent interview that he was sure that the release of his new single, Make Way, would clear the doubts in the minds of his critics, who have literally called for his head in the last few weeks.
The social media space has been awash with the news of Ceeboi’s new song in the last five weeks. He is described as the protégé of Krizbeatz, and with less than 72 hours, the song enjoyed sizable number of reviews. “I respect everybody, but I strongly believe I am the best and fastest rapper Nigeria has ever heard of.”
According to Ceeboi, who released his first single, Leena, in 2015, “The attention has been massive in the last few weeks. Everybody had waited in anticipation of what I was about to release. Now that we have dropped the song and visuals on Friday, those who doubted my ability have been appreciating my work.”
Having released two EPs in 2016, with appearances from Ice Prince, Seriki, Jahbless, Sojay, Kida Kudz, the rapper had set his mind on the bigger picture. “I have always looked at the bigger picture since I was young, he enthused. “I grew up listening to Techo, Twista, Jahbless, Notorious BIG, Tu Pac, Mode 9, Tuface, and my favourite rapper, Kendrick Lemar.”
