Nigeria has all the genres we have but they push Afrobeats. What’s wrong with me riding for SA hip hop cause it got me here? I have supported every genre in SA, Come on big bro. I hate these back and forths on Twitter. Rather call me if you wanna discuss this. https://twitter.com/ZakesBantwiniSA/status/1155227393713430528
