Nigerian rapper, Olanrewaju Ogunmefun, popularly referred to as Vector has revealed why he stopped entering for the Headies and other awards.
The rapper during a post via his Twitter account on Saturday said he intentionally removed himself from getting involved in such competitions because he scrapped the thought of getting to outdo other artists.
He also stated that he stopped competing with other rappers because he knows he can “easily beat them one on one.”
The rapper further revealed that he’s grown now and awards don’t mean anything to him anymore, adding that he doesn’t also care about money or clout and only wants to form music.
Intentionally removed me from the thought that I even have to outdo mode9. It’s not necessary.
“Ask him about me within the studio and he will tell you. I don’t care about clout. I just want to form music. F*CK money too. That sh*t comes and goes anyway.
“I have known what proportion my deal is worth as a rapper. But that’s not me because bragging only brings fake people around you anyway.
“Stay humble and live easy. Accolades are just accolades.
“Peace to everybody who deserves peace. As for the Headies, I ended entering for it because I don’t want to compete with rappers (I can easily beat them on a 1 on one but that was Unilag).
I’m grown now. Awards actually don’t mean anything to me anymore. Let new people win awards,” he said.
