It seems 2020 is a year where every Nigerian musician would find a way to tell the world how great they have been. A few days ago, Burna Boy became the most talked-about celebrity on Twitter when he declared that he is the best after Afrobeats originator Fela Anikulapo Kuti. Now, legendary beats maker, Samklef, has joined him to also announce to the world how great he had performed in the industry.
The producer who has also voiced on some evergreen Nigerian hits, in his series of tweets agreed with Burna Boy that no one paved the way for Burna’s international recognition. He also insisted that he, as a producer, is one of the kings in the music industry.
To prove his status as a king in the industry, he tweeted a list of some of the hit songs he has produced especially between 2010 and 2012. Most of which were some of the biggest hits of Wizkid – Don’t Dull, Pakurummo, Slow Wine, What U Wanna Do, and Wad Up. The producer even went as far as pinning the tweet on his Twitter page.
“It’s showbiz baby. No more yeye humility. Let’s keep it real”, he wrote. “U don see where Toyota dey call honda great b4? So many Nigerians are jobless and idle… dem dey work for devil workshop”, he tweeted.
He also retweeted a tweet of American producer Timbaland which urged producers to know their value. “All hail timba for this…..Nigerian producers free urselves from ur slave masters… dey don’t want to see u succeed. Know ur value”, Samklef commented on Timbaland’s tweet.
When a fan of another legendary producer in the Nigerian Music industry, Sarz tweeted a list of hit songs Sarz has also produced so far to counter that of Samklef, the “Molowo Noni” crooner commented on it by writing: “We are all kings, Sarz is great.”
Below are some of the tweets Samklef shared that has placed him among the top 10 trending topic on Twitter as at the time of publishing this report:
