I CAN TAKE A BET ON X-BUSTA
If you are friends with aspiring rappers, you will understand why it’s a big deal when they are raving about how another person that’s not them is a fantastic rap star. When they leave their arrogance to rave about another fellow, that person must be the real deal. It’s one thing to hear folks talk about how an artiste is one of the best freestyle lyricists in town but it’s another thing to witness the said act wow you not just once but continue to sweep you off your feet time after time. The name X-Busta might not resonate with you like your favourite lyricist would but this dude is the truth. Until you witness him perform, you won’t understand why he’s everything you want your favourite rapper to be.
His real name is Okafor Golden Chinedu , born in Lagos on February 27th 1994, he hails from Orlu in Imo State, he started music professionally in Obalende Lagos at a tender age, relocated to Owerri when he got admission into Imo state university where he studied Estate Management and was the course representative of his department in year 1. He was voted as the public relations officer of his department in year 2. He was retained as the public relations officer in year 3; he became the director of socials of Imo state university in year 4 and retained as the director of socials of the school until he graduated (this experience might be the reason why this guy can use everything around him to rap in a split second).

He was a household name in the east as at 2013 and was featured in most major events in the east and Nigeria as a whole.
