Nigerian hip hop recording artist, Panshak Zamani, better known by his stage name Ice Prince has the perfect explanation for his disappearance from the spotlight.
Speaking with Punch, the Oleku rapper responded to the question about why he has yet to drop any hit song since his smash hit singles, Oleku and Aboki. He said”
“My duty is to create music, but how far the music goes is not for me to decide. God did what He did for Ice Prince and He did what He did for the Nigerian music industry. Music evolves and if God blesses an artiste to make a song that has a huge impact, such a person shouldn’t claim he is responsible for the glory. It is God, not the artiste.”
This comes just days after a rude Nigerian took to Twitter to compare YBNL rapper Olamide to Ice Prince, saying that it won’t be long before the Wo crooner disappears into oblivion too. And that tweet pissed off Olamide, because he went on a long rant, dragging the troll and even making threats.
Though Olamide didn’t mention names, it was clear he doesn’t want Ice Prince’s fate–OUCH!–because, why would he vent so much, so much that his tweets got many people scratching their heads?
Well, Ice Prince is not pleased with the unkind mentions and comparisons as well. In his statement to Punch, he referenced other stars who are yet to drop hit singles over the years. He said:
“I don’t know if you will ask 2Baba when he will release another African Queen or you will ask 9ice when he will make another Gongo Aso. Will you ask Olu Maintain when he is dropping another Yahooze. I made Oleku, and I have also done other great songs.”
