Is Phyno’s Singing Better Than His Rap? Share Your Thoughts.

Phyno is among the big league Nigerian artists, which is quite impressive for someone who started out as a rapper in an industry such as ours where there is a smaller audience size for Hip-hop music. Although he has had to sing to produce commercially successful songs most times and this has been his trouble with those who know him primarily as a rapper. Phyno has however clearly stated that he was first an artist before he started rapping. He stated that he’d do whatever it takes – singing or rapping – to make hit songs. His latest effort is titled N.W.A   on which he featured US-based Nigerian rapper, Wale.

Read our thoughts on the new song below:

@ibironketweets A team of Phyno & Wale on paper suggests a balance of indigenous and western-flavored Hip-hop music. And indeed that’s what N.W. A is – a tune composed of sonorous vibe and soft but interesting bars about loyalty, struggle and street credibility, especially from Wale. It’s the kind of music that a Californian and a music lover from Enugu can bump to when sharing a ride. Phyno held down the hook duty well, singing mostly in his dialect but could have taken this chance to clear doubts about the loss of his Hip-hop credibility.

@jimancipation I’m afraid to say Phyno is a dope singer. Not for the fact that I think he is not, but because I feel it’ll be disrespect to the likes of those who have put in actual work to ensuring the craft of flexing true vocal potential isn’t drowned in the ovation of those who have mastered the art of ‘barfing on the mic’. But hey, bad as I do not want to admit, Phyno’s singing has quite some melodious flavour to it especially when you compare his prowess with those colleagues (no names called) who have also decided to try out the singing art form.

Just like Fada Fada, Pino Pino, Augment, Telli Person and those other records where the playmaker showed his singing skill, this new song N.W.A comes exactly in that sonorous form. Beautiful composition of words, simple rhythm and utterly sweet melodies. Not many artists (even the ones wey claim to get voice) can achieve these feats today. Not even your faves. And so if Phyno can, should it make sense that we’re trying to limit his creative versatility because we’re all of a sudden now pressed firmly on a fix-up mission? The truth is, every time Phyno opts out of his rap persona to take on singing, there is an unusual style of musical diversity that is introduced and I think it’ll be unfair to rid the industry of that. Afterall, his recent music hits have come from him singing and they do not in any way subtract from how dope an emcee he is, or even can be.

  4. Though he is not from my tribe,but I love his music style and that makes me love him also.

  5. phyno is a musician not just an artist. he gat styles and that is very important in the music industry. he is a good singer and a good rapper and trapper too. he don’t have to fade off cos rap is fading in Nigeria . phyno is an all weather artist , he adjust to whatever the weather brings just Tory lanez . Phyno sings better than our favourite singers and you all who I’m talking about ….producers are the one lifting them up . one will come to studio with an empty line and be shouting shouting and back it up with big promotions and quality videos .. PHYNO IS GOOD IN SINGING AND RAPPING TOO and if you still doubt his rap quality DISS HIM .

  8. Phyno’s real local rapper not a singer, his singing’s just because Naija don’t value good music, they only go for the money! 95% Nigerians are not musicians, they’re talking in the name of flows… Chioma ur head, nkechi ur waist, oluchi make him go gaga, funke na you dey make him life complete, if you leave him go, him go die ooo, so fucking…..
