Igbo rap artiste, Mr. Raw has he wishes to be addressed as, has explained that his long silence in the music scene was to enable him develop other new arts in his record label ‘Raw Deal Recodrs.’
According to the Raw Deal boss, he explained that since the entertainment industry was growing on a fast pace and people now look up to Nigerian artistes, he decided to step aside to enable him push other young talents into the industry.
He expressed his joy over seeing people now doing what he started which is rapping in the igbo language which he said took people time to really accept when it newly started.
“My major project right now is the artistes I want to push out on my label, Raw Deal. I will release their names when the time is right. I am trying to assist other upcoming artistes to make it entertainment wise,” he disclosed.
“It’s a plus, which means we are doing more. I started rapping in Igbo when nobody was doing it. It wasn’t that easy then for people to accept it, but now it makes a whole lot of sense. I actually feel entertained seeing other artistes do what I started. I feel great when I see people like Phyno doing what I started,” Mr. Raw, applauded.
