Olanrewaju Ogunmefun a.k.a Vector has been widely celebrated as one of the best rappers from Lagos, Nigeria. His journey into hip hop dates back to junior high in the year 1997 as he’s vibrantly involved in social activities entertaining his peers from the stage as a young rapper. In 1999 he formed a group “Badder Boiz”. So determined they were about hip hop that they started writing their own songs and along the line, in the same year, they started performing at showcases combining their various skills, aimed at selling the underground sound to the surface.
