There is a hot debate going on social media which has been necessitated by a statement Nigerian singer Burna Boy made about who he thinks is the best rapper in Africa.
Burna Boy in a private interview said he believes South African rapper, Nasty C is the best rapper in Africa but the spotlight has not been placed on him that much.
This bold statement from Burna Boy has rubbed fans of rapper Sarkodie the wrong way who insists that their MCM is the best when it comes to the rap game in Africa.
Why do they think so?
Well, Sarkodie is the only rapper on the Africa continent to have the most awards and recognitions. He is the only rapper from Africa to have won the International Flow of the Year award at the 2019 BET Hip Hop Awards.

Fans believe these records set Sarkodie apart and put him ahead of his compatriots like Nasty C, Cassper Nyovest and Olamide. Therefore, they do not want to accept the fact that Nasty C will be declared by Burna Boy as the best rapper on the continent.
This has generated some level of back and forth. While some support the assertion Burna Boy has made by declaring Nasty C as the best rapper in Africa as far as he is concerned, others believe it is an erroneous assertion since Sarkiodie stands tall amongst them all.

Sarkodie and Nasty C are very good rappers. One has International Record Label and another don't.
How many International Record Labels are there in Ghana?
