African giant nah only for mouth, – Rapper Dandizzy shares observation after visiting Kenya, Uganda

Rapper Dandizzy from Nigeria has compared his nation’s development to that of Kenya and Uganda, two of its rival countries in Africa.

The rapper came to the conclusion that Nigeria is 50 years behind in terms of infrastructure development after visiting the two East African nations.

The “na just for mouth” African Giant, Nigeria, he said, should have been closed down if it weren’t for its exports of football and music.

Dandizzy said this in reaction to writer David Hundeyin’s assertion that Kenya is better than any country in West Africa.

It all started with a Twitter user known as @I_Am_Winter asking; “Abidjan and Nairobi, which is more developed ?“

In response, Hundeyin tweeted; “This is not a serious question bro. When Kenya is talking, the whole of West Africa should kneel down and face the wall. There’s no comparison.

Nigeria has more rich individuals than Kenya, but Kenya has a much better off middle class, and also a bigger middle class proportional to its population. So on paper Nigeria is wealthier but if you go there, you will see the truth for yourself. Nobody will have to tell you.”

After analyzing the scenario, Dandizzy concluded that Uganda will be able to provide basic facilities and a dependable power source in 2024, but Nigeria will not be able to do so.

The rapper wrote; “Been to Uganda and Kenya and I can tell you that we’re 50 years behind, African giant nah only for mouth, if no be music and football we suppose close this country start afresh. I added Uganda because they have 24/7 light and all the basics, nah we still no get basics for Africa.”
