He was influence by some Nigerian rappers , he made his final decision to become a professional rapper.
He finally made up his mind to enter the music industry as a result of the inspiration he got from some foreign musicians like 50 Cent, Eminem, Jarule, Rakim, Canibus, and Nas just to name a few. He took Nigeria by storm after releasing banging singles “like Air Burn”, “Death Bed” , ”Paper Boi” and so many of them. Besides Erigga, he is also called Erigga Newmoney, “The King of the South”, “Paper Boi”, and “Erigga New Money.” He released his debut single in 2002. When he was a newbie in the game he started rapping in English but he later switched to Pidgin because he realized that more people were able to understand it and relate to him.
Erigga grew up in the street , it influenced his decision to spit bars in his local language. He is not anew rapper or one night hit maker because he has been in the game for years trying to build his career before the two thousands. He has also participated in several rap battle in Warri, Benin, and Port Harcourt and won over twenty-four in total while gearing up to burst onto the Nigerian Music Scene.
Erigga is one of the best, most loved and talented rapper from the south, he spit flows in a way that the street will understand his plight and they never get lost on the flow. He officially became very famous when he released the video title “Dem No Get Two Heads”, shot by Igho Tosin (igho films). Unfortunately it didn’t get a enough airplay because of it content. However, it got over 5000 views in the first week of uploading the video because most people would prefer to see for themselves.
The south-south finest has released several hit songs and he has also worked with many famous Nigerian musicians. His songs are not always aired because of his vulgar lines as it is not healthy to the health of young people. His raps are not good for children that is one major reason his songs are barely played on radio and Tv stations.
Erigga has been in the game for couple of years and he is no longer and upcoming anymore and we think he deserves more recognition talking about awards. The rapper has hooked up with heavy weight producer Lay Low to produce a single titled “Won Be Be” . He has won several awards and has been earned himself several nominations in Benin and Warri. He also received nominations for ‘Lyricist on the Roll’ and ‘Best Street Hop’ in 2012. The Warri born rapper was formally signed to Heavy Weight Emergence record label New Money Entertainment that is owned by Snow Man for four years. After being signed under this label, he has done some major collaborations, he enjoyed his productive cooperation Sean Tero, whom he believes contributes to big hits.
He is currently signed to “Emirate Empire” owned by one young man from Edo State , the record deal was sealed in 2016 and said to worth ten million Naira . He had some major achievements after signing that deal as he purchase a new Range Rover, Lexus, and was given a fully finished Lagos apartment. The rapper has over fifty songs some of which are featured on his album, A Trip to The South. Erigga is very good at what he does but the problem is that is songs are very vulgar which are reasons why he is not given enough airplay and he some times receives backlash for that.
We just hope he works on his lyrics so that it can be aired because it will definitely go a long way to help grow his career by taking his hustle to the next level.
