Nollywood Alive Music Artiste Of The Week – Vector Tha Viper

Olanrewaju Ogunmefun is a Nigerian rap artiste who goes by the stage name, Vector.

He was born in Lagos state, 1984 but hails from Ogun State. His primary, secondary and tertiary education was all in Lagos state and he graduated with a BSc in Philosophy from the University Lagos in 2008.

He started his musical career as far back as 1999 by putting together a duo group called “Badder Boiz” where he was an Emcee. He later joined the duo group making them a trio and he recorded his first demo that same year after the split of this group.

In 2010, he released his first official single titled “Kilode” and that was the start of his rise to stardom as an independent artiste. He has dropped three albums so far in his career. They are

  1. State Of Surprise —- Released in 2010
  2. The Second Coming —– Released in 2012
  3. Laifiaji ——- Released in 2016

He also released a mixtape in October 2018, “The Rap Dialogue” in an effort to keep the spirit of Nigerian hip-hop alive.

He has recorded lots of singles, and a lot of features as well. Some of them are; Born Leader, Angeli, Get Down, Mary Jane etc

He seems to have slowed down a bit, but he found himself in a recent controversy with another rap artiste, M.I which has caused a stir on social media that has been on for a long time. Prior to this, he was once engaged in a similar rift with another Nigerian rapper, Reminisce and resulted in naming calling in their individual diss tracks.

Will, he let whatever grudge he holds for them, go? We hope so because we need more music from him.

He has been nominated and won numerous awards and some of them are;

  • Best Rap Single at 2015 Headies
  • Best Afro Hip Hop Video at 2012 Nigerian Music Video Awards
  • Lyricist on the Roll at 2012 Headies.

Vector is a Rapper with sick flows and rhymes and while some may say he can be quiet inconsistent in dropping his music, he still remains a strong force in the rap game.

Vector also ventured into acting when he played the lead actor in movies like Lara and The Beat and June. He is clearly a multi talented individual and that is why he is our artiste of the week!
