Dat Nigga

Nigga Raw emerges as a very big influence on 9ja's youth today. This icon invented the infusion of modern techniques of rap with the local dialet which results in something of a new cultural phenomenon. Infact Raw is undoubtably the father of modern 9ja rap. Dat Nigga has built an awesome fan base and of course got great reviews from fans and critics alike. A great number of our youth today who have chosen careers in the music industry have become influenced by this enigma: and have begun to reshape their individual brands. Raw won the 2008 Nigezie Icon of Style and is posed to definitely collect lots more of silverware. Outstanding musicians who have emerged from his shadows include Timaya, Decumzy, Smartman, Duncan Mighty, Desperate Chicks -( i absolutely love those chicks), Blackdog and a whole lot of others. Raw's latest album - Everything Remains Raw reputedly sold 250,000 copies in the first 3 days of its release, now sale figures are in millions of copies. Nigga Raw has always been loyal to his roots and manages to intwine his loyalty to his hometown - item with that of Enugu - where he grew up. I hereby appoint him the Honourable Ambassador for Youth and as he currrently tours Europe on a promo, i say to him, "nwanne enwero, keep on waving the green flag bro"

I am not too sure of this information that Nigga Raw invented the Blend of rap and Native language. I think i can mention 20 rappers who have don that before he came along. Basically every Nigerian rapper has been doing that.What do you think.

if any artist will sell 250,000 copies of his CD in Nigeria, I doubt if it will be Nigga Raw. It might be easy to convince me that the likes of D'Bnaj, 9ice and P-Square have sold 1million copies, but even then I might be shocked.

nice observation Emma, but its my opinion that nigga raw invented that oh so splendid fusion of rap with renditions in the LOCAL DIALECTS which even a fellow Igbo man might not necessarily comprehend but enjoy nevertheless. Desperate chicks (self acclaimed disciples of nigga raw)really do not make any sense to the average igboman outside enugu(udi) but it does not make their music any less enjoyable.
