The Top Five (5) Beefs In Nigerian Music Industry
This article was compiled just to take you back to the top Five (5) Beefs in the Music Industry which trended through the years, although within the past few years some of these disagreements have been settled and some have been made to die down. Here are the top 5 Beefs in the past years:
The Feud between Sauce kid and Godwon is at number 5 of our Top Industry Beefs. If you are very vast in music & have a wild remembrance of that year (2013), we witnessed crazy beef between these two friends in the industry. it was quite loud as the two artiste went as far as going into the studio recording diss songs hitting at each other’s daughters and wives revealing some really private things mehn. We are not sure if both sauce kid & Godwon, have settled their differences since they both are no were to be found on the industry’s radar at the moment.
The disagreement which occurred between Naeto C and Ikechukwu was not quite well understood as fans could not know what led to the beef between two childhood friends. Some even said “how can the dog chew the finger that it fed from” referring to Naeto C’s loyalty to Ikechukwu who we all believe to have brought Naeto C to limelight with the “Kini Big Deal ” track. Ikechukwu also had some issues with the then Mo’hits crew, Ikechuwu and NaetoC ended their beef releasing a track “WHY”.
So this beef actually started after MI dissed Iceberg Slim then Kelly handsome took to twitter to attack him several times calling me “Retarded”.. They both released diss tracks, titled “Beef” and “Finish You”. This is another interesting diss moment to remember cause the trending on twitter no slack.
Although both MI and Kelly handsome have settled, even performed on the same stage one time but Kelly Handsome is saying that if he hadn’t started a beef with MI, MI wouldn’t be as popular as he is now.
At number 2, we have the beef between Reminisce and Vector, these two artiste are very good at their game but back in the days, they had a disagreement both Lyrically and in Personality, resulting to tracks which geared up the beefs.
But not quite long; few years back, they both settled their differences and now Reminisce is on the Remix of “King Kong” and likewise Vector featured on the Baba Hafusa Album. It is all good with these two artistes.
1. Mo’hits, D’banj & Wande Coal
At Number 1, We have Mo’hits Crew.
This has been the most controversial beefs of all time, non-arguable. Their have been series of stories about who caused the break up of the Greatest Crew “Mo’hits” which is no more, now redefined into “Mavins”. I wouldn’t point fingers at which artiste did this or that, as D’banj as come out himself to speak his own side of the story on “The Truth with Olisa Adibua”.
So, the disagreement led to the departure of both D’banj and his younger brother, K-Switch followed by Wande Coal who has his own label now called “Black Diamond”. At this Year’s MTV Base African Music Awards (MAMA), we witnessed D’banj dedicating his “Evolution Award” to Don Jazzy. Also few weeks back, Db Records Boss shared some pictures of him chilling at the MAVIN Mansion with Dr.sid and the rest.
So we can say the MAVIN and Db Records have officially/publicly settled the scores but we cannot forget “Black Diamond” as nothing has been said if Wande Coal has been in contact with any of them yet.
I am sorry if you were really hoping to see Davido vs Wizkid make this list but I consider those as shades and not beefs because they never did attack each other lyrically or personally but just mere tweets (shades) which were exaggerated by Fans. If you still disagree with me, well, I have tried my best; you can do better.
