GNL reignites hip-hop “who is who” debate after declaring himself G.O.A.T

Baboon Forest CEO Ernest Nsimbi alias GNL Zamba has inflamed the “who is who” debate within the Ugandan hip-hop circle upon declaring himself G.O.A.T (Greatest of all time).

GNL made this declaration through a tweet in which he endorsed the third edition of the TML Conversessions, an episode the hip-hop icon is going to headline.

The storyteller notified fans that the G.O.A.T will be headlining the Tusker Malt Conversessions episode that goes live this Sunday, December 5.

The rapper went on to claim the hip-hop throne by declaring himself as “the pinnacle of rap excellence”.

In the tweet, GNL insinuates that his talents surpass rap when he describes himself as a griot. Griots are members of a class of travelling poets, musicians, and storytellers who maintain a tradition of oral history in parts of West Africa.

This is a subtle jibe that self-elevates GNL’s artistry from the competitions, classifying his art form as that from the uppermost echelons.

“5th December THE GOAT will be at the @TuskerMaltLager Conversessions. Tune in to witness the man who put the G in Greatness! His eloquence, The pinnacle of Rap Excellence in his Magnificence. It’s the Genius the Griot Ghetto Storyteller!!!” read his tweet.

Uganda’s hip-hop crown has always been contested, with every rapper claiming rights to it. From trailblazers like Navio to hot right now acts like Feffe Bussi, some bars in their songs are spared for claiming the throne.  It is only exciting that GNL, who has reignited the debate, will have an opportunity to prove himself as the rightful emperor as he headlines the first hip-hop edition of the Tusker Malt Conversessions.
