Indigenous musician, Fino has actually exempted himself from the list of rappers in the music scene. Phyno, who is known as a Nigerian rapper obviously doesn’t want to be dragged into the recent call-out by on rappers that are not keeping it real.

In his recent interview with popular music tv station, HipTV, made the bold statement that he’s a musician and not a rapper. Phyno took music by the horns when he released a massive hip hop joint ‘Multiply (Remix)’ which featured , Flavour, Mr Raw & MI. Later on, being inspired by coming from the other local scene, Phyno took the spot to represent the East with his local style.
