Reminisce, Olamide And Phyno Were Only Clowning Around – Modenine On Local Rappers

Nigerian rapper, Modenine

Popular Nigerian rapper, Modenine has debunked rumours that the lyrics of “Local Rappers” a song by Reminisce feat. Olamide and Phyno (who all rap in indigenous languages), is targeted at himself and MI, who rap in pure English.

Reminisce and his pals had declared in the song that ‘punchlines don’t bring in the money anymore’ and many who have listened to the song believe the jibe in the song was directed most especially at MI and Modenine.

But in a recent interview with HipTV Modenine shrugged off the notion that the message in the song was directed at him, saying no rapper would say punchlines in raps don’t count anymore.

Speaking about the song, Modenine said: “It’s a lovely song. When I heard it I felt it was a satire meant to ruffle some feathers though, but it cannot be directed at artistes who still use punchlines in their raps.


“We all know that punchlines still and will forever bring in the money. Because if you check advertising, you will find out that the payoffs, the punchlines are always there and that brings a lot of money. Punchlines bring in the money. I like the song, but seriously, I know they were just clowning around,” he said.
