How radio station rejected me, 9ice for singing in Yoruba’ – Reminisce


Indigenous rapper, Remilekun Abdulkalid Safaru, popularly known as Reminisce, has recalled his “first major” rejection in the music industry.


The ‘King Of Boys’ star said his first major rejection was when a radio station rejected him and singer, 9ice’s CDs because they performed their music mostly in Yoruba.


He disclosed this in a recent interview with Zikoko.


Reminisce said, “My first major rejection was with 9ice on the Island at a radio station where we went to submit our music CDs for airplay, and the feedback we got was that we would never make it.


“They said 9ice was singing like Babalawo [native doctor] cos he sings in Yoruba.


“The other guy told me: ‘why am I rapping like a buffoon, can’t I see Ruggedman? He said that we should both go back and look for something to do with our lives and be better.
