Nigerian rapper, Yung6ix has said he is the only rap artist left in the country, stating that no other singer does the genre of music. Yung6ix said 50 Cent, Jay Z, Lil Wayne and Kanye West are the foreign rappers that inspire him. He said;
“it’s a fact” that there is no rap artiste like him in Nigeria. I am the only rapper in the country right now,” he said during a show on Hip TV. I can’t see anybody doing modern day rap music apart from myself. It’s just the truth. It’s just the fact. They don’t do it like I do it.”
The rapper also spoke on how his origin has affected his career, saying that being a native of the south-south region of Nigeria has been the most challenging thing for him in his career. He said;
“Coming from south-south Nigeria has been the most challenging stuff because when people want to do anything, they keep the south-south out of it, When they want to give awards, they keep us out of it. First of all, which other rapper from south-south has been doing this for the past ten years? I had a chance because I came into the industry under the right record label.”
When asked about his relationship status, the rapper said it “depends on my location”, adding that “sometimes, I wake up single, sometimes I don’t”.
