9ice once said 👇

No gainsaying I’m the cutest physically
Don’t doubt me
I go bring home Grammy
Incredible, remarkable, unbeatable, palatable, reliable”
God bless 9ice and other Naija musician that paved way for Burna Boy, Wizkid & Davido pic.twitter.com/9Hpwboq3S3

There should be no room for 9ice Slander on this platform.
That man gave us more than enough hit tracks than to be compared with Burna. And more over, they are not in the same category. 9ice and Burna are both Legends on their own

9ice gave us Photocopy, Gongo Aso and Street Credibility. Don’t try to disrespect him.

On a more serious note, we knew the whole lyrics in the Tradition Album by 9ice than we know Burna’s African Giant.
More respect to 9ice, he’s still a king👑

You people don’t know 9ice is a legend or you’re too young to know what his second album did in this country in 08? You cannot skip one song on that album. Only about seven albums have such power in nigerian history. Ten max
