These are all the corner stones of his experiences which are translated into the album . Coincidentally or not, his preceding album , ‘ Second Coming ’ was released a full 4 years ago in December of 2012 , the latest album titled ‘Lafiaji ’ which means Birth is apt .

To understand the future, we must understand the past . ”– Vector

Vector who lived in the barracks on King George the 5th road in Lafiaji knows all about the grind and sweat that it entails to becoming a force to reckon with . He also involved someone who understood all too well what it meant to live like he did in Lafiaji ; his sister.

It was very personal. I remember feeling really bad on the song with Johnny Drille as it made me remember the most heart breaking experiences of the past ; While recording with my sister who showed me how to sing when I was a kid felt super refreshing : she needed no audio effect enhancement . She was pitch clean perfect. ”-Vector

Falz the bahd guy , Dbanj and Tanzania ’s Vanessa Mdee are some of the other features on the track .

There are more surprises but we can ’t give too much away .
