“When I started rapping, everybody thought I would end up like my uncle who got hooked on drugs” – Rapper BlaqBonez
Popular Nigerian Rapper, Emeka Akumefule, known professionally as Blaqbonez, has taken to his social media page to reveal the negative predictions people had about him when he started rapping.
Blaqbonez said he had an uncle who tried rapping at some point but lost his way, got hooked to drugs and later on ended up in the village.
He added that when he started rapping himself, people predicted that he’d probably end up like his uncles but much to their disappointment, he’s proved them wrong.
The rapper wrote ;
I had an uncle that used to rap, didn’t happen for him, he then got hooked on drugs, from rehab to rehab till he ended up in the village, when i started rapping everyone thought I would end up like that but boy did it turn out soooo different
I stay proving em wrong
They used to say “I see the spirit of uncle *** inside him” and it used to hurt me soooooo bad, it then built a serious fear and anxiety in me, in everything I did, cos I constantly thought “what if they’re true?”
