Watch The Music Video For Phyno’s “The Bag”

Although it isn’t an uncommon practice for rappers to incorporate singing into their arsenal, Nigerian rap fans can be adamant in their opinion that switching things up isn’t acceptable. Indigenous rap veteran, Phyno is one of those who comes up in discussions with regards to rappers partially turned to singers. Ever since the Olamide-assisted “Fada Fada” became a smash success, Phyno has mostly remained fixed on the Highlife-indebted Afropop path. on “The Bag”, his second single of 2019, the rapper/singer asserts his affluence, tacitly nodding to the consistent bankability his switch up has brought him.

“My account fat like yokozuna [slang for sumo wrestlers], too much money for my knicker ”, Phyno sings, with the gruff of his voice adding weight and some level of mischief to his lyrics. Willis produces the groovy beat for “The Bag”, accentuating Phyno’s conceited set with a mix of palmwine guitars and rollicking percussions. Patrick Ellis also captures the glossy intentions of the song in its accompanying music video, set in a lavish mansion, with Phyno performing and partying in the company of models and affluent friends.
