Onokohwomo was born and raised in Warri, Delta State. He grew up as the oldest child in a family of five, and took a strong interest in music at a young age. While a student at FGC Warri, he engaged himself in rap battles

The self-acclaim king of the south spits blazing punch lines as he trills his fans all the way after any drop of track. His use of metaphor is often admirable and excellent  you could remember some of his amazing songs like Respect you mister, I am more than incredible I am the best two. Only yung6ix drops these dope lines. Young 6ix ranks as the number 10th best rapper in Nigeria.



Lanre Dabiri, (born May 23, 1977) better known by his stage name Eldee, styled as eLDee, is a Nigerianrapper, record producer and architect. “Lanre” is a diminutive for the Yoruba name “Olanrewaju” (which translates to “Wealth is moving forward  eLDee studied Architecture at the University of Lagos, Nigeria. He is an original member of the band Trybesmen, which was started in 1998 with rappers KB and Freestyle. He hails from Lagos Island in Lagos State of Nigeria

Eldee’s vibe for Nigerian music is highly remarkable and it shows in his music and the way he pulls the attention of the crowd anytime he steps on the stage for a live performance. by virtue of this, he emerge our 9th spot on the ranking of our top 10 best rappers in Nigeria




Vector is currently one of the top acts in the Naija rap game. Also known to be a poet, songwriter and producer, his rap style has been compared to that of American rapper Jay Z.  He is the voice behind the2009 Sprite radio commercial.

There was once beef between him indigenous rapper Reminisce. Vector dissed him on Sauce Kid’s ‘Kitchen Street’ in response, Reminisce dissed Vector on a track titled ‘ATA’. On on 30 December, 2013, the two came together and put their differences aside. Reminisce recently featured on Vector’s ‘King kong’ remix.

He is definitely a gifted rapper  who word play his limitless.

B. N. L

  4. I would say: give it all to mode9(MODO).. But MI is so incredible.. Being the best rapper it’s not just by doing commercial tracks. The use of metaphor,punchlines and word play qualify’s Modenine the number one. But, MI applies them too,but he sounds nice and more over,he’s more consistent than Moda..

  5. Na wa Ooo, where is reminise in ur post . Politics shaa in every thing

    1. Sorry bro,the list is out,so mi is the best ,and if you don’t like it,it’s up to you because everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

  8. The only thing that make me going like crazy is why people keep calling the music nigeria hip hop when really i did not received any single track that is full with normal English language them mix up with rap English, all what i found ’em own music is a tribes speaker maybe nig&as just need uneducated to be camp on every single track they do, but mk maintain 4.18 second rap gonna be 4.35 minutes beat, try to play mk status on, you will respect that language of real hip hop artist, please can you share a single track from a nigerian rapper full with English only, it is like a go look for school and study more up mk f6, did eminem system get more like on music?.

        Mode 9
        Erriga …warri
        But I think Mi is already an icon and should not be on the list do 6ix is the best

  19. MI and Modenine control number 1. 2nd is Vector. 3rd Olamide and Phyno. whats the depth of olamide and Phynos lines?its not about noise or sold out shows. Being the best rapper takes brilliance and pure talent. saying Olmide or Phyno are better than MI and ModeNine is like saying DMX is better than Nas just because he makes more noise(i love DMX though)

  26. How can M.I be number one, when Mode9 is the, the rating of M.I and Olamide in Nigeria is purely a mainstream, they are over rated, one thousand years to come Mode9 will still be the Africa’s greatest

  27. I salute o MI king of all rappers…..”me vs u is worthless I am he who all ye rappers worship” – KING JAMES…all other rappers should learn from MI especially phyno, he has no flows or nice lines he just spits out trash In Igbo….

  28. File fun eyan may welder after him na him na him again i salute you no 1 ybnl nation oshe omo iyami emi mon ki no 1 star boy record

    1. all you dont know wat is rapping. Come to c.b.n then u will see phyno and olamide etc are none of the best rapper. Respect to my nitol boss LAWSON DAL

    1. you’re the [email protected] Rio,cos u know nothing about rap,mi is the best rapper in nigeria and in africa precisely,go and listen to chairman and illegal,you will understand what i mean

  29. Phyno is the best rapper, I don’t know wat dis people are talking. All I know is dat PHYNO is the best rapper even in africa. Assuming u guys read very well, u will c where they wrote”even the non-igbo speakers likes the line phyno’s rapping”

  30. Like SERIOUSLY Paper Boy is not in list ? REALLY thats not fair.For crying out loud Errigga is the best rapper in Nigeria cause he gat the rhymes ,the flows just name it he his the king of rap ,the king the south and of course the olorogun of hiphop

  31. what about phyno a.k.a the king of ezeke…u guys should download the music…phyno is the best rapper followed by olamide don’t stop….can u guys download zero rapper 2016 music he’s proves well their by ogene ft flavour

  34. olamide badoosneh…I just dey feel una, for Nigeria top ten rapper ur name dey, top ten richest artist ur name dey…I just won be lyk baba…na u get am Eyanmay weather

    1. Reminisce still needs time to prove himself. He’s still not fully known in every part of Nigeria(only known by mostly south-westerners), this list isn’t cast in stones, it is subject to change as the music industry evolves

      1. Very wrong! Reminisce has been in the game. If as you said, he is still new in the industry, Phyno should not have made the list. Listen to “Ka Ko Bi Chicken”. Lemme even go and download the song again sef!
