Nigerian rapper, Vector Tha Viper, recently vented his frustrations on social media regarding the ongoing issue of betrayal in the music industry.
In a recent tweet, the rapper expressed his disappointment in the lack of loyalty he has experienced, specifically from his fellow colleagues.
According to Vector, some of his peers have been undermining his reputation overseas, causing him great distress.
Additionally, he revealed that his refusal to compromise has led to him being branded as “stubborn” and “troublemaking.”
Interestingly, Vector finds it amusing that those who betray him always maintain a pleasant facade whenever they are in his presence.
On his X handle, the rapper wrote:
“I’ve been holding back a lot. If you think about it, I am the perfect example of the one who they thought would be ‘classist’ because I rap in English and I should ‘leave all these local affiliations’ but una no mind when Jay-Z dey rep bed Stuyvesant or Brooklyn.
“Because I’ve always had my self awareness intact, ‘he’s stubborn’.
“In the US, an ex affiliate of one of your darling rappers said ‘I see why they were uncomfortable about you; you don’t bow to anyone’.
“Abi na when them go Ghana dey talk say all Vector knows how to do is ‘trouble rap’ only for the blogger to check online and find ‘luv you Nigeria’ and reached out to encourage me. I think he said ‘this is the most poetic rap I’ve heard from Nigeria’.
“The funniest part is, these people literally become nice puppy dogs when I see them. You would wonder why they are scared of a man like me who smiles so much.”
