Vector stressed that people who are supposed to be patronising the Nigerian rap genre don't pay attention to it.
An extract from his statement read:
"I feel like it is disrespectful to talk down on what people feed on or life as that is how their life is. I feel it is disrespectful to talk down on that if your yardstick of evaluation is not applicable to it. If you are coming from a pop perspective rap would be dead both realities exist simultaneously in their own characteristics."
