 "The same lines from "Local Rappers" were the same lines I used on Modenine's "Oyi Rappers" #WhatChanged?

#WhyDidItTakeSoLongToSpeakUp?" he further tweeted.

The rapper stated that some people within the rap industry in Nigeria are afraid of change so they believe the song targets them.

'Local Rappers' was released on January 22. The single was criticized by some who felt the song tried to downplay the relevance of wordplay in Nigerian rap music.

On  February 16,  rapper A-Q dropped a response to the track called 'International Rapper'.
