Modenine – I Don’t Know Olamide & Phyno In Person
Rapper Modenine has revealed he is does not have a personal relationship with Olamide and Phyno in an interview with Vanguard. According to Modenine, he knows the two rappers, but doesn’t maintain any relationship with them although he added that he is friends with Reminisce.
‘Reminisce and I are good. I believe if you visit someone, and you’re seeing the person’s kids and wife, it’s all good; you can consider yourself being good with the person, right? But as for Olamide, I just know him in person. We see, have handshakes, but I’m not really close to him, though I do know him, but we don’t hang out. That’s the same thing with Phyno. Phyno even made a beat for my album, but he couldn’t come up with a hook on time so the album just came out without it,’ he said
Modenine also revealed he can’t rap in Yoruba
‘No, I can’t do that, you know why? If there are people doing something and they can do it better than you, there is no point in doing it too because they are already way ahead of you.
It is harder for me to write a Pidgin English song than a normal English song. I can rap in English effortlessly. I don’t just write anything, I try to be clever with words like when I said, ‘They be bungalow brains, nothing upstairs;’ it’s a punch line, but it was done in Pidgin English,’ he said
