DJ BATTLES AND ISOLATION MUSIC WARS
April 3, 20200
With isolation and quarantine chronicles as front and center of our lives, a lot of social media TV and IG binge shows have emerged.
Therefore, when Nigerian music enthusiasts need validation on who their G.O.A.T is, they turn to old mixtapes, present popping chart hits and of course producers with extra magic.
Kicking off the series was the Shizzi Vs Sarz battle. Demure and respectful, the two encouraged each other, with plenty ‘Yes baba’ and ‘Wow-this -was-your- jam? moments. Most notable was when Shizzi played ‘Rand and Naira’
Further, soaking us into his music and reminding us that he has been around a minute. Sarz did not disappoint from Wizkid hits to Niniola, Runtown, world and a host of others.
On the other hand, Pheelz fans were a bit unhappy as his battle with Mastercraft felt underkrafty, joked to have recreated another OLIC moment, with Olamide hits, there is no denying that Pheelz is just as talented.
Masterkraft: Na we start Mr Eazi career bro, plays life is Eazy 😭😍
Pheelz : master that no be hit now, na we give Mr Eazi Hit, plays SURRENDER 😭❤✌

In the end, my personal favourite was Leriq and Chopstixx, not so much for the music alone but the bands and the energy. Two young men from opposite sides of the country just serving hip-hop, and dancehall tunes that will always be green
