We Re-Imagined Nigerian Musicians As Naruto Characters

April 21, 2020

Two of the greatest things from my teenage years are watching a shit tonne of anime like One Piece, Bleach, Naruto. And listening to an unhealthy amount of Nigerian music. Not the cool ones. I am talking about “I am hotter than fire“, Hapuya like that and to cap it off, the legendary Pasa Pasa by MP. Songs like that.

Intermission: This in no way reflects the true parenting skills of my Nigerian parents who tried their absolute best. I just could not resist that Nigerian sound.

As an adult, these two things still remain dear to me and that’s why I made this list imagining Nigerian musicians as characters from one my best Animes of all time; Naruto.

Let’s start:

1) Falz as Killer Bee.

The basis for this one is that they are both eccentric rappers.

2) Burna boy is definitely Gaara.

Powerful men who can be unpredictable. At least, Old Gaara.

3) Tiwa Savage is Tsunade.

You don’t mess with the boss. Periodt.

4) Starring: Davido as Rock Lee.

“Hard work does not kill, what kills is laziness.” – My English teacher.

5) Asa is Neji. Neji is Asa.

Quiet genius. If you know, you know.

6) Wizkid is definitely Sasuke.

Young prodigies who don’t really send anybody.

7) I can’t stress this enough, Wande Coal is Shikamaru.

Lazy but talented bastards who cannot come and kill themselves.

8) Simi is Konan.

Peaceful, easy-going. If you don’t want trouble, just don’t come for family or loved ones.

9) Jiraiya as Don Jazzy.

Older and mostly cool adult who gives you valuable advice and life hacks. Also buys you food.

10) Rema as Konohamaru.

New generation bad ass. 🙌
