NIGGA RAW REVEALS WHY HE CHANGED HIS NAME TO MR. RAW

Formerly known as 'Nigga Raw', Edward Okechukwu Ukeje has explained why he changed his stage name to Mr. Raw.

He told a reporter for Gossip Nigeria, during a recent interview with WEEKEND GROOVE, that he had to change his name, because presenters couldn't talk about him on-air without the need to censor the word 'Nigga' that is attached to his name.

"Yeah, the change of name actually came about because on-air personalities could not say my name without driving another connotation to it. It was affecting information about me. Some foreign stations like MTV Base couldn’t play my music until I removed the word ‘Nigga’ from my name. I had to do it." He said


He added that he got more impetus to do the change of stage name, because he wanted to improve the online sales of his songs.

"What actually gave me the push to change my name to Mr. Raw was when many people complained that they weren’t able to buy my songs online. I saw that they censored ‘Nigga’ and replaced it with five stars". He gushed.

The Igbo Superstar rapper went further to clarify what the Nigga in his former name stood for:

"The ‘Nigga’ in my name wasn’t like the American Nigger. Mine is actually an acronym NIGA which means Nigerian Guy Anakpo Raw (Nigerian Guy who is called Raw). But how many people would you be explaining this to?"

To conclude, I'm sure this won't be the last time we would be hearing from Mr. Raw.
