Vector-tha-Viper

Born Olanrewaju David Ogunmefun on August 7th, 1984, VECTOR THA VIPER is a hip-hop act, songwriter, poet and music producer, widely celebrated as one of the best rap acts of his time in Nigeria. 

Vector’s journey into hip-hop dates back to junior high in the year 1997 as he was vibrantly involved in social activities entertaining his peers from the stage as a young rapper. 

In 1999 as part of the group “Badder Boiz” (comprising himself, Blaize & Crystal), they recorded their first demo series with the lead single “Knocking At Ur Door” which enjoyed some airplay on local radio. The three did not leave any stone unturned as far as making their presence felt at talent showcases. As a group of three, they were together till 2004.

His versatility runs through fast and equally slow tempo, a rapper cum lyricist, an excellent songwriter, and a producer. Vector is an undisputed emcee endowed with freestyle skills and flair that he awesomely displays on several freestyle battles like Channel O Lagos Party at the Vaults, Unilag Rap King etc.

Officially signed to YSG Entertainment in 2009, Vector announced himself on the mainstream scene with the controversial “Kilode” (featuring singer Emmsong). This was swiftly followed by the street anthem “Mary Jane”. The 3rd single titled “Get Down” (feat. Tuface Idibia) earned him the award for “BEST HIP-HOP VIDEO OF THE YEAR” at the Nigerian Music Video Awards (NMVA 2011) and also a nomination for “LYRICIST ON THE ROLL” at the Hip-Hop World Awards 2011.

Vector’s debut album “State Of Surprise” was released on 29th October 2010.

His highly anticipated sophomore album titled ”The 2nd Coming” was released on 12th Dec. 2012 and has already churned out hits like the multiple award-winning “Angeli” (feat. 9ice) [“BEST RAP ACT” Nigerian Entertainment Awards (NEA) 2012, “LYRICIST ON THE ROLL” and “BEST RAP SINGLE” at the Hip-Hop World Awards 2012].
