Some people discover their talents at a very unfortunate period of their lives; when they are in hardship. But the same cannot be said of Oluwatobi Akanbi, a 12-year-old rapper who boasts the courage of an adult.'s correspondents were in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital, for the 2016 National Drums Festival, when this young chap was made to perform on stage.

With the traditional Adire outfit on a pair of jeans trousers, the youngster, whose stage name is T-rapper, not just dazzled the teeming audience, but was also spontaneous in some of his remarks.

After the performance, our correspondent caught up with him and had a brief interview with him. He was also asked to do a freestyle on the spot.

Master Akanbi, who said that he had been rapping since he was six, also called out the popular award-winning Nigerian artiste Olamide, aka Badoo, stating that he could match the finesse of the 'street' rapper, although his ultimate goal remains having a collabo with the Eyan Mayweather crooner.
Check out the interview and enjoy the performance of the young Nigerian boy who is living his dream!
