Banky W has reminded fans of his ability as a rapper with a stunningly effortless freestyle performance on the MTV Base Official Naija Top Ten. Famous for his silky R&B songs and smooth ballads, he hosts the latest edition of the weekly countdown show where he reminds his fans of his hip hop credentials and takes aim at critics and naysayers during the course of a spell-binding 40-second freestyle:
“Haters like to talk about my head being way too big/
I brush it off because my flow is just way too sick/
And plus I’m on my way to being way too rich/
Came in the building solo, tonight I might slay two chicks.”
After the freestyle, the superstar announces a giveaway contest with the prize being his signature ‘W’ hat which he has worn in several music videos. This week, his collaboration with DJ Xclusive and Niyola “Tonight”, falls three places to number nine on a countdown that sees a lot of movement in the lower half.
Elsewhere on the chart, “Collabo” by P-Square featuring Don Jazzy drops off the chart again after making a surprising re-entry last week. Replacing it at number ten this week is this week’s only debutant “Come And Do” by Cynthia Morgan which has been tipped to become a monster hit. The top four tracks remain unchanged from last week as Patoranking again keeps hold of top spot with his international hit “Daniella Whine”.
“Looku Looku” by the Mavins, “Jangilova” by Sheyi Shay and “Oringo” by Phyno remain at number two, three and four respectively.Burna Boy’s “Soke” surges four spots to the number six spot this week and Sean Tizzle’s “Bottles” rises three places to number five.“Monkey” by MI featuring Chigurl falls three places to number eight this week to complete this week’s line-up.
