Nigerian rapper and songwriter, Ycee has replied a social media user who claims there is nothing unique about singer, Tems’ voice.
The man with handle @SirDavidBent had taken to Twitter to berate Tems after it was announced that she is featured on American rapper, Drake’s newly released album “Certified Lover Boy”.
The man who claims to be a musicologist opined that a lot of Nigerian female artistes can sing better than Tems and she is only famous because of good PR and hype. According to him, her voice sounds normal and doesn’t get him in his feelings like singers, Chidinma, Tiwa Savage, Yemi Alade and Omawunmi.
“There are plenty of female artistes that can sing better than Tems. I’m yet to find what is unique about her voice.
Except a lot of PR and Twitter hype.
Chidinma’s voice sends chills down my spine. Tiwa Savage sends chills as well. Yemi Alade and Omawunmi are better singers.
Unfortunately there’s nothing “unique” about Tems voice.
Her voice is just normal to me. It doesn’t send chills down my spine.
I’m a musicologist, so I know what I’m saying.”
P.S: This is my own opinion, if you like ratio, from now till tomorrow, e no concern me.”
In reaction to this, Ycee advised him to sleep on ice block since he is looking for something to send chills down his spine.
