Nigerian rapper AQ has released a compelling single titled ‘The PVC Story’. The 7-minute long record is a tragic tale that intertwines a number of political and social ills that ring a bell.
As the title suggests, The PVC Story charges Nigerians to be more proactive, and engage in the ongoing voter’s card registration exercise whilst addressing the ravaging case of drug abuse and sexual harassment that breeds in our society.
“They can keep their NYSC, ain’t gonna serve no country that don’t care about me, they’ll probably post me up north where they’ll kill me for free; I’ll catch a water-borne disease and die of dysentery.
This Government is evil, they don’t care about the people, see, people killing people and the suffering continues, gotta get them out of power if that’s the only thing that we do… I’m switching off this Ps3, today is a good day to get my PVC” he rapped in the opening verse, highlighting the need for Nigerians to partake in the voting exercise.
Shining a light on drug abuse, he gave an account of Shade (a devastated character who is dealing with the trauma of post-substance use and rape. “She told me about some girls back in school and how she was introduced to substance abuse. By the time she was home, she was already an addict, through the long holiday, she was feeling subdued”.
(…) She felt hands gripping, she tried to fight back, but she was weakened, she tried to scream out, but couldn’t pitch it, she could feel hands in her pant reaching, then she felt the d**k in”, the rapper narrated.
With four albums and a number of supporting projects, AQ is one of the most consistent rappers Nigeria is blessed with, and in a few weeks, he’ll be releasing a joint album dubbed ‘Crown’ with Chocolate City signee, Loose Kaynon.
