Popular Nigerian singer, songwriter and producer, Samklef is back again with another artiste revolution titled #afrotrapcompetition. To participate in the challenge, the multi-talented singer asks fans to download the beat, do a 60 seconds video with their rap verse and tag @samklef with the hashtag #samklefgratitude #jaiyemibysamklef. The winner is chosen based on the highest votes and views.
Early this year, the singer shot the official music video of his single titled “Skelebe” featuring Konvict Music boss –AKON. The singer was only involved in a very personal beef with controversial Nigerian OAP –Daddy Freeze. The feud got so bad that even both camps’ families became involved. The feud started between the duo when Daddy Freeze commented on the photo of an alleged insane man who was healed at a branch of the Redeemed Christian Church of God. Samklef called out Daddy Freeze, who in turn gave him a very thorough tongue lashing.
Putting that aside, with Samklef’s latest uprising and looking at the theme of the competition, it’s safe to assume that self-acclaimed Afrotrap pioneer – Kach might not be the only musician in the Afrotrap game soon. With Nigerians warming up towards the Afrotrap genre just as Ghanaians have embraced the gqom, it isn’t surprising that Samklef intends to toe that line.
We can’t wait to see who wins the #afrotrapcompetition and what comes out of it.
