According to Phyno, Joey Akan is a tribal fool that needs to mind his business instead of exposing his career to serious trouble by trolling him (Phyno).
Joey Akan’s post on twitter that provoked Phyno’s rant is quoted below:
Phyno had a very disappointing year. He’s no longer a part of any conversation.
In response to this, Phyno took to his twitter handle on Thursday, Dec 27, 2018, to quote Joey Akan’s tweet in which he trolled him. He responded;
Joey Akan is a Multi Award-winning Journalist with Music Intelligence. He used to work as a with Pulse Nigeria but that’s “ex” now as he now affiliates himself with Okay Africa.
Nigerian indigeneous rapper, producer and song writer , Chibuzor Nelson Azubuike popularly known as Phyno
In 2010, he decided to try his talents as an MC, starting his own Rap career under the advice of Ilbliss and today he has transformed the image of the “Indigenous Igbo Rapper”. Asked about his decision to rap in Igbo he says “At first I was bothered but if you knew things about music you will understand that music has no language… One of the biggest songs between last year/this year is `Khona’ and we are in Nigeria, we don’t even know what they are saying, so that’s how music is for you…You don’t need to understand what they say; just go with the flow as long as they come clear when it comes to their visuals so that’s why I take more time in my videos too”.
Phyno had many hits under his belt even before the release of his much anticipated album “No Guts No Glory”. He boasted in his song “No album but am getting milli, and am giving deaf ears to ndi asili (gossipers)”.
Some of his notable songs include, Man of the Year (which talks about his ascendance against all odds), Kush Music, Parcel and the street anthem ALOBAM a tribute to his loyal friends and associates. Known as the ‘Man of the year’, for his wonderful chart topping record of the same name he started as a producer in 2003, today he is a household name in Nigeria and abroad.
Phyno grew up in the streets of Enugu City in Enugu State, although his parents are from Anambra state, South East Nigeria. He graduated from IMT (Institute of Management and Technology) with a degree in Public Administration. He is a native of Anambra state and the 4th child in a family of 5.
At a young age he wanted to be a pilot while his father felt he was very handy and should become a doctor. Later one he became disillusioned about a career but his love for music would eventually grow in secondary school. There he learned to play the drums and piano. He wasn’t the best but it encouraged his love for music. His choice of Public Administration was taken out of a need to quiet the traditional Nigerian parents’ desire for a certificate. But by his second year, he was already independent and his music production had started to pay off.
The name Phyno is a high school nickname taken from the word ‘phenomenal’. This he says “is because I always liked to stand out back then in school. My friend, Emeka, was the person that first called me phenomenal, and that was the first time I actually heard that word. He said I was phenomenal and from there we started calling him that, because he always used the word a lot. Then he started calling me phyno and that was how the name stuck to me”.
