Fresh off the success of his certified rap anthem “King Kong”, Vector Tha Viper has been issued a challenge to prove he belongs in Nigerian rap’s upper echelon by setting a new Guinness world record for the longest freestyle rap on live radio.
This challenge was issued by Rhythm 93.7 FM at the official unveiling of the Rhythm Freestyle Fury contest. The quarterly event is generally characterised by a variety of artists faced with themed musical challenges, and Vector is the first ever artist to be issued this particular challenge. In a statement issued by Vector he said, “It’s an honour for me to be selected as the very first person to take on this challenge.” He added, “I definitely relish this opportunity to set a new world record and I’m bringing my A-game.”
The show will not only feature Vector rapping nonstop, but will also have four upcoming rappers battling it out for a grand prize.
Open to the public, four people stand a chance of being among the selected rappers battling it out for the grand prize. Entrants need to upload short videos of them rapping about Rhythm FM on Instagram, tag @937RhythmFM and @VectorThaViper using the hashtag #RhythmFreestyleFury, and get as many people as possible to like their entries.
