BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher 2011: Nigerian Rappers Revealed!

Naija Stand Up!

The time has come for Nigerian Hip Hop to receive global recognition as we've been given a chance to showcase our rap skills to the international community. The BET Hip Hop Awards 2011 will be aired LIVE from Atlanta to the international audience on the 11th of October. For the majority of rapheads, the biggest catch of the show is the "CYPHER".  Virtually every top rapper has graced it, and this year promises to be an exciting one. Why? Because a Nigerian Rap contingent will also be on show.

Last wednesday, Nigeria's very best rappers spat killer bars and the video was shot the following day. notjustOk.com received some "materials" from the audio and video sessions but BET has instructed us not to put anything up (copyright paroles). However, we can exclusively reveal the names of the Nigerian representatives at this year's Cypher. Check 'em out below.

*O.O*

MALE (Alphabetical Order):

Ice Prince

M.I

Modenine

Naeto C

Sauce Kid

X.O Senavoe

FEMALE (Alphabetical Order):

Blaise

Eva

Muna

Sasha

Zee

Producer (Audio): IBK Spaceship Boi (Enigma winner)

Director (Video): Clarence Peters.

The American rappers on the Cypher this year have not been made public (even on top US blogs/websites). However, our "inside sources" reveal some major names like Eminem, Ludacris and Mos Def. Exciting times, y'all!

The BET Hip Hop Awards 2011 premieres Tuesday Oct 11, 2011 at 8P/7C for US residents.

BET GHANA CYPHER 2010: D-Black, Sarkodie, Kwaku-T, Ayigbe Edem, BabyG, Tinny & Reggie Rockstone.

Guess XO and Zee are wild card spots... cos neither of them have paid their dues! XO is frigging Ghanian too. Where's vector? Where's Kel? Where's Killz? Also wonder if Dagrin would have made the list since it seems like it's all yankee spitters

Uncle mi, so the organizers made a mistake putting X.O's name there? Dont u think, they'll check his background?? Kel??? Kel hasn't delivered in a while. The only person i agree with is Vector... DaGrin would have made the list.

The Emcee's list is ok but and addition of Godwon,Killz, and Olamide would have made a complete and perfect list.. For the Femcees , I think Sasha should be replaced with Kel.

I know MI will kill it.....MI is the illest among them ....i m expecting a lot metaphors from you MI. i discussed u with my hommies here in florida, honestly Sasha is not suppose to be on the list, and if Ice prince can spit the way he spit on (somebody wants to die) hes gonna make me belief in him better, and sauce kid got the rap accent he just need to be more clever with his rhymes and metaphors and mode nine should try and to be more creative with his metaphors i mean something the society can… Read more »

Hating Ke! What has hating gotta do with this. XO is a cyber MC at present - in fact only peeps who log onto notjustok know who the hell he is. Period!!! Zee is there because Clarence Peters is involved...let's try to be honest with ourselves for once. Not saying they aint got skillz but they should not be ahead of others!
