The award-winning Nigerian rapper, Vector tha Viper who has recently been making airwaves with the hit single, ‘What’s that’ is back with Much-Anticipated Album, “Lafiaji Experience”.
With an album release set for December 20 and a concert slated for December 27 in Freedom Park, describing this album journey is an emotional one for Vector.
He grew up in, Lafiaji (Lagos Island), it is in his blood; carnivals, beef, love, riots, worship, friendship and most importantly family. These are all the cornerstones of his experiences which are translated into the album.
Vector’s preceding album, ‘Second Coming’ was released coincidentally 4 years ago in December of 2012, the latest album titled ‘Lafiaji’ which means Birth is apt.
The University of Lagos graduate of Philosophy said, “to understand the future, we must understand the past“.
Vector who lived in the barracks on King George the 5th road in Lafiaji knows all about the sweat and grind that it entails to becoming a force to reckon with.
He also involved someone who understood all too well what it meant to live like he did in Lafiaji; his sister.
“It was very personal. I remember feeling really bad on the song with Johnny Drille as it made me remember the most heartbreaking experiences of the past.
While recording with my sister who showed me how to sing when I was a kid felt super refreshing: she needed no audio effect enhancement. She was pitch clean perfect.” Vector added.
Falz the bahd guy, Tanzania’s Vanessa Mdee and Dbanj are some of the other features on the track. There are more surprises but we can’t give too much away.
