Without a doubt, Olamide’s ‘Wo’ and Niniola’s ‘Maradona’ were two of the songs that rocked the Nigerian music scene the most last year. But have you ever wondered what a mash-up of the two bangers would sound like? Well, Boogey satisfies our curiosity with his blazing new ‘Maradona + Wo’ freestyle.
Easily one of Nigeria’s finest lyricists, Boogey – whose real name is David Iye Odey – is one Nigeria’s fastest rising Hip-hop artistes. The 31 year old rapper who hails from Cross River state only began actively pursuing a rap career after completing his tertiary education in Morocco and returning to Nigeria in the latter half of 2010.
Boogey, who describes his style of rap as “Hip Hop doused with conscious poetry, intellect, humour, love and rebellion,” has been compared to multiple Grammy award-winning American rapper, Kendrick Lamar, on account of his peculiar style on his many brilliant singles and mixtapes.
Gearing up for the release of his 6th body of work titled ‘Noveau Niveau’, Boogey drops this freestyle to give us all a little glimpse of what’s to come. Characterised by his unique flow, brilliant lyrics and killer punchlines, this freestyle offers us everything we’ve come to love about Boogey and more.
