‘Greatest of all time!’Twitter fans in battle of wits over 9ice, Asake

Social media on Tuesday witnessed a battle of words as fans of music stars Abolore Akande aka 9ice and Asake generated debates on Twitter over who is best in the music landscape.

For about 24 hours, music enthusiasts, fans, analysts and even politicians on Twitter played down a certain tweet insinuating that Asake is better off 9ice in music.

The tweet was greeted by refutation from numerous 9ice fans, who described it as untrue and rather disrespectful to the Gongo Aso singer.


The tweet was instigated by a user, who identified as Quickiepaedia on Twitter.

The user in a tweet stated, “I feel Asake is a more talented and socially accepted act than 9ice.” The tweet which didn’t go well with 9ice’s fans aroused anger and emotions as they started to list every of 9ice’s musical achievements.

The tweet attracted another response from a fan of 9ice, who stated, “Gongo Aso is bigger than Asake’s past, present, and future music career.”

Another user tweeted, “Is it the same 9ice that Buju called a source of inspiration? Like the same 9ice that made many non-Yoruba folks wanna sing Yoruba songs? Asake is good. It is his time. I love his album. The comparison is not needed.”

Recall that 9ice came to the limelight in 2008 with his smash single ‘Gongo Aso’. The artiste later won the Best Hip Hop Artist of the Year at the MTV Africa Music Awards, a MOBO award and swept four other awards at the 2009 edition of the Headies.
