For some of us who follow music, there has been a lot of bad blood and feuds in the Nigerian music scene.
The beef usually starts when an artiste believes he/she should probably be getting more recognition than their colleagues or sometimes you just never can tell what really transpired.
Some of the songs are witty and lyrically engaging, and we have compiled their videos into a list for you.
Wande Coal’s diss to Kelly Handsome (Who born the maga)
This song was one of the biggest hits from now defunct Mo’ Hits Records – despite being a diss song, it had everyone going nuts at the time of it’s release.
Kelly Handsome’s response to Wande Coal, D’banj and the rest of their crew
The song was released as ‘Igwe kom kom’ which saw the singer throwing all sorts of jabs at the Mo’ Hits crew.
But then, M.I Abaga also had a witty reply for Kelly Hansome on the song titled ‘Beef’.
With killer lines like ‘See wowo pikin dey form handsome – Kelechukwu clap for yourself (welldone)’.
Ruggedman, who dissed his way to fame had once thrown serious punches at Mode 9 on the single ‘Banging’
With memorable lines like; ‘Your a broke ass, your album na puff puff, N5 na so we go dey chop am’
As if that wasn’t enough, Vector also went in on Mode 9
‘Whats the beef about? I hear you talk like you don’t open your mouth’
‘saying hip-hop is dead/ if hip-hop was you then hip-hop is scared’
You know us but we don’t know u here/ who’s yor father whats your family name/ don’t even answer we know your family is lame’
Terry G made a mistake calling out Mallam Spicey and he got the short end of the stick on ‘1,005 naira’
Let’s not forget Nico Gravity also tried to finish Timaya on the song he titled ‘Finish Timaya’.
Godwon also had a little beef with Sinzu on the song titled ‘I’ve Been Waiting For You’.
Sinzu replied to Godwon’s diss on song titled ‘Exit Strategy’ before he went quiet for a few years.
How can we forget Faze’s ‘Letter to my brother’
Which also got a response from ‘his brother’ 2face Idibia with ‘See me soo’
