One of Nigeria’s talented and fast rising rapper L J the Saaavior of Rap is back to town with a big bang and good news of his pursuit and feat in Ghana. He was spotted at the birthday bash of Image Faculty CEO-Busta, where he took time to share in his Ghanaian dream, his current activities and what he is up to at the moment. After the immeasurable success of BLASPHEMY MIX-TAPE- what many music critics have referred to as the best mix tape ever from this part of Nigeria, L J relocated to Ghana to expand his horizon, having a taste of the international music scene, and to study music production.
In recent time, news filtered out of Ghana about his increasing fan base, and how he was honored at the Ghana Entertainment Industry Night. While in Ghana, he also performed alongside Jay Cool, and the likes of Dayo Adeneye of the Prime Time Fame has also given L J’s talent a nod.

L J is currently in Uyo, and he hinted of plans to shoot a video for one of his new singles with AJE. The chat with L J wouldn’t have been complete without questions and reactions on L J’s fallout with Chop Money Boiz and Supersonic Blaze, Chop Money Boiz as a name was seen at some point in time, on trendy t-shirts, on Blackberry Messenger profiles, heard in music and music videos, and in clubs/campuses in Accra, Uyo and Lagos.
It seemed to have been the rave of the moment then, but quietly going down the drain, with the so called members now pursuing their individual dreams and careers.
In LJ’s words, ‘the movement was no more meaningful to me, I left that stage of popping champagne in the club, I told all of them that we should put money on the table and get to work, get to promotions and shooting of videos, but they were particular about going around popping bottles so I opted out.”
This was Supersonic Blaze’s idea, but things went awry along the line, and while he was yet to decide what it stands for, came the inherent battle of supremacy, loyalty and unity of purpose in the Chop Money Boiz clique.
