Flamboyant rapper Desmond “Stunner”Chideme has acknowledged King 98 as the best male rapper this year because of the exploits he has done in the showbiz.
Below is an excerpt of some of the words posted by Stunner on social media endorsing the rapper of the moment, King 98.
“Just to think of that now he has Nasty C going kunana high one all in the name of rap, I wouldn’t compare King 98 with people who don’t have albums this year, own projects and of course relevant gigs” said Stunner.
In an interview with H-Metro, Stunner insisted that King98 worked hard this year to earn this respect as the best rapper.
“To be the face of hip hop you have to have walked and represented the genre.
“King 98 has done that both locally and internationally, so if we all respect work and international status, he is the best we have for 2019,” he said.
Stunner has also revealed that King 98 used to come for advice since 2017.
“The boy has been coming to me since 2017asking for the way to go musically, which is what most artistes need to do in order to get to the top not just hating and plotting”, he told H-Metro
The hip hop prodigy has dismissed the claims that he endorsed King98 as a way to gain financial back up from the young rising hip hop artiste.
“I can back my music financially on my own, I’m not desperate for financial assistance and neither am I looking for any.
“When I speak about King98 I’m not just jumping on hype but I know the kid since back then,” said Stunner
The rapper has also urged hip hop artists to collaborate, work on albums and to increase the hype of their music which is what broadens their fan base.
