Your favourite item of clothing in your closet currently is ....?

My cowboy boots.

Who has the better rappers, Nigeria or South Africa?

Tough question. One thing I will say is the clarity in South Africa is clearer due to the accent not wavering too far from the western world. “Rap” has a lot to do with clarity and vocabulary and pronunciation so if you’re talking best “ENGLISH” rapping I would say, South Africa. On the other end of the spectrum if we are just talking RAP overall it’s a toss-up.
