He is a veteran in the game and has continued to dish out really great music.
Reminisce who raps fluently in both Yoruba and English made news a few years ago when he asked that people stop referring to him and other rappers who rap in Yoruba as indigenous rappers.
Speaking with Hip-hop World Magazine, he said;
“Stop calling us indigenous rappers there is nothing like that, a rapper is a rapper, calling myself, Phyno, Olamide, Seriki, BaseOne, Lil Kesh and couple of others coming up local rapper is a way of suppressing or make us feel inferior, because Sarkodie is a rapper no one refers to him as indigenous rapper. If you cannot call him a local rapper then don’t call any of us local or indigenous rapper. Over the years, we’ve been able to overturn the rap game, we’ve been able to change perception as regards if you cannot rap in English you cannot be a rap god or king and it’s been a collective effort. Things has really change people can now know who the real hiphop guys are unlike before when if you can rap in English you won’t get endorsement. And we feel very proud to be the rave of the moment”.
On how he makes music, Reminisce revealed I an interview with TooXclusive that;
I make music however I feel. I don’t try to restrict myself to one particular genre, I am a rapper, singer and songwriter. My environment inspires me and moreover I speak both languages fluently, why dull na? *laughs*
