You have spoken the truth ma brotha. Hiphop music shortly after its inception in the US of A, was a force for social awareness and change. Therefore, it would be great at this time of widespread decadence in our immediate environment that our hiphoppers moved from talking about mundane things to addressing real issues.

if only dis guys wld stop bein selfish, hip-hop wnt be considered as childsplay. this genre is known for her social commentaries and upfront representation of the ppls mindset. ask why it is different in nigeria.

Some Nigerian emcees are speaking up but the mainstream media is not allowing their message to be heard. Here's a conscious Hip Hop song I found on YouTube done by two Nigerian emcees and they address the Niger Delta issue. The track is called "Gbege Song" and it was done by Plumbline feat The Wordsmith.

The song and its YouTube slideshow video is being discussed in international circles and environmental rights activist, Oronto Douglas and several others used this song recently to stage a peaceful protest in Holland about the Niger Delta crisis.

Listen and rate.

Feeling the song (the message and music) and its true about Nigerian music, in general, not just hiphop/rap always failing to reflect the realities of life in the country. But its the same with the movies, nollywood is all bling when you consider that 90% of us live below the poverty line. i think our art and popular culture in general has turned into escapist crap... mainstream wise that is.

The underground is a different story tho.
