Some people discover their talents at a very unfortunate period of their lives - when they are in hardship. But the same cannot be said of Oluwatobi Akanbi, a 12-year-old rapper who boasts the courage of an adult. The young chap performed on stage at the National Drums Festival in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital. With the traditional Adire outfit on a pair of jeans trousers, the youngster whose stage name is T-rapper, not just dazzled the teeming audience, but was also spontaneous in some of his remarks.
After the performance, a journalist caught up with him and had a brief interview. He was also asked to do a freestyle on the spot. Master Akanbi, who said that he has been rapping since he was six, also called out popular award-winning Nigerian artist, Olamide, stating that he could match the finesse of the ‘street’ rapper, although his ultimate goal remains having a collabo with the Eyan Mayweather crooner.
