Tupac Shakur vs. The Notorious B.I.G. Nas vs. Jay-Z. 50 Cent vs. Ja Rule and The Game. Drake vs Meek Mill. These are some of the greatest hip-hop feuds in history. Now, we have one in northern Nigeria.
DJ AB vs. G Fresh.
Who? You probably think DJ AB and Teeswag or Classique and Morell. But yep, DJ AB and G Fresh Alameen it is.
While DJ AB is very well known and has been rapping for the past ten years, the same can’t be said for G Fresh. Quite alright, he’s had a few hits, including Rayuwa ft Umar M Shareef, Halimatus Sadiya ft Ali Jita, Mayan Mata, Siyasar Kano and his Magnus opus, Kano to California ft Lil Ameer (which he claims former Governor of Kano, Rabi’u Knwankwaso used for his campaign).
Yet this wasn’t what brought him more fame; his feud with DJ AB did.
It’s not much of a feud if you look at it, as it’s just G Fresh Alameen taking digs at the latter. G fresh, popular on TikTok with almost 50k followers, regularly uses his popularity to taunt “Yaro na Kaduna,” as he calls DJ AB.
Of course, there’s nothing that people like more than drama. Naturally, this made him more famous.
Compared to his most popular post on the platform, featuring Kannywood actress Saratu Daso at his mother’s condolences visit on 20th July, which has over 121.8k views, and another one dissing a week later, which had 240k views and almost triple the likes, one would conclude there’s a significant increase.
In all this ‘feud,’ DJ AB has neither responded nor provided a single comment, leaving G Fresh alone with his rantings. On the contrary, AB’s bosom friend, Deezell, reached out to the former for a reconciliation.
In a video by Deezell, DJ AB was seen walking away from the trio’s truce meeting brokered by DJ AB. As fans of AB concluded, the rapper merely tolerates G Fresh because of his friendship with Deezell.
While fans of both have been seeking a collaboration, it’s unlikely that’ll ever happen. Because when it does, the duo will throw shades at each other, something the eager fans look forward to seeing.
