My secondary school English teacher is 50. He sang that taxi Driver song before my grad. He was on stage dancing and singing. i was literarily rolling on the ground and laughing. See the old man. What memories. I heard this girl caled AYO. Is she Nigerian? She is damn good

PSB said...

ANGEL123 said...

Where is naija hiphop scene going sef...
I think it's sad that two friends (eldee and freestyle) have to put their beef on wax. I heard freestlye's own first and i gotta say that he's winner in this first round of battle. ElDee - rap and coodination on this track are wack.. he's in america and throwing soft sissy punchlines to a cat in naija..obviously -it's quite clear who the better rapper is btwn the two.. FREESTYLE of course. eldee has a better exposure now and he should focus on nice beats,reduce his audio/lyrics jacking and deliver better next time..

hmmm London Buki, if you haven't heard it in over a decade...then let's see 10+1980 something +...ahh! Now I know how old you are.

Michael could not be coming to Nigeria. He would melt in the African heat.

Cheers!

Anonymous said...

dissapointing and confusing at the same time...what is the american theme looking for in tuface's video...it just does not compare to the former album. too bad he is getting shallow and suffering from inferiority complex.
