Spotlight On

His latest album, Osapa London (2023), showcases his growth after racking up nominations at the South African Music Awards and HipTV Headies Awards, as well as winning the Clout Africa Award for Best Hip-Hop Artiste in 2022.

First To Know
“I’ve been championing hip-hop culture since I was 19, getting on the cover of Rap Life is such a massive win for myself, my team, my family and my fans!” PsychoYP tells Apple Music. “I feel like it’s go time for me and the right time for the world to hear PsychoYP. Osapa London is a project that connects my style of rap with the Afro influences in my music. Many would say this is the most Nigerian version of me that they have heard.
