The King Of Nigerian Writers

So I heard this song Control by BIG Sean and wondered what it would be like if writers battled like rappers and this is what i came up with…
MY RAP VERSE
I heard the coffee shops spittin’ great debates all the time
Bout who’s the best Writer? Achebe, Soyinka and Sarowiwa
Ekwensi, Adichie, the rest of y’all
New writers just typists, don’t get involved
And I ain’t writing no more stereotypical african shit
Mutant power’s and Alien invasion, this is red Planet anonymous
I’m usually cool with the same writers I’m hangin’ with
But this is real and them writers should know what time it is
And that goes for Eghosa, Adaobi, Tunde Leye
Seun Salami, Shoneyin, Helon,
Sefi Atta, Nnedi, Teju Cole, Selasi
I got love for you all but I’m tryna murder you writers
Tryna make sure your core fans never read any of your writing
They don’t wanna read not one more noun or verb from you writers
What is competition? I’m tryna raise the bar high
Who tryna jump and get it? You better off tryna skydive!
PS: Take it as humor, don’t go sky diving and killing yourself.
