Yung6ix says he is presently the only rapper in the country and that no other artiste is doing rap music.

Real name Onome Onokohwomo, the artiste said 50 Cent, Jay Z, Lil Wayne and Kanye West are the foreign rappers that inspire him.

Yung6ix said “it’s a fact” that there is no rap artiste like him in Nigeria.


“I am the only rapper in the country right now,” he said during a show on Hip TV.

“I can’t see anybody doing modern day rap music apart from myself. It’s just the truth. It’s just the fact. They don’t do it like I do it.”

The rapper said being a native of the south-south region of Nigeria has been the most challenging thing for him in his career.

“Coming from south-south Nigeria has been the most challenging stuff because when people want to do anything, they keep the south-south out of it,” he said.

“When they want to give awards, they keep us out of it. First of all, which other rapper from south-south has been doing this for the past ten years?

“I had a chance because I came into the industry under the right record label.”

Young6ix, who released his first single in 2011, also commented on the rise and growing influence of the Afrobeats genre.

He said: “When we started, the industry was not on this level. We are past the point where Afrobeats is so big. We are about to conquer the world.”

When asked about his relationship status, the rapper said it “depends on my location”, adding that “sometimes, I wake up single, sometimes I don’t”.

He added: “Music is a selfish career, very, very selfish.”

If you mean the only rapper that no one knows, then I would have to stand and applaud you- that would be a sensible observation on your part.
