These artistes reinvent common street terms and make it relatable and appealing to listeners, thereby setting a trend. We have seen this formula work over time, though must to be combined with the right beat and sound.

Falz also impresses with his witty and catchy lines such as Wehdone sir, Soft work, Something Light, Ello Bae and so on. These phrases have also become popular lingua on social media.
It’s only a matter of time, Your Father by MI featuring Dice Ailes becomes a street trend likewise. Your Father kicks off with Dice Ailes, who had an interesting run with his smash hit Otedola, cursing at haters, lecturers, and the embasy. MI follows next ranting about being the father of rap music and emphasizes on his supremacy. We may as well call this a sequel to “You rappers should fix up your lives“.
