Their beef got more heated as time went on but that changed in the last quarter of 2020
The two rap OGa decided to bury the hatchet and end their beef in the second quarter of 2020 and went on to do a couple of collaborations together. This would definitely leave its mark in the industry in the years to come.

This was something that couldn’t happen during the impressive ‘King Kong (Remix)’ run nor during the Choc Boiz run has finally happened.
Asides from jaw-dropping on impactful tracks like ‘I No Send You’ by Suspekt, ‘Define Rap’ by VJ Adams, Freestyle Three of the 2020 Hennessy Cyphers, and ‘One on One (Remix)’ by Zorro, both MI Abaga and Vector finally agreed to make a song to the joy and happiness of both fan base. It is about the kingship and riches of the blackness with a strong focus on heritage, identity, and gender balance.
After Pheelz was contacted by Vector, a beat was immediately sent in. Vector and MI Abaga then had a recording session that featured producers like; Pheelz, Beats By Jay, Self, and CUBIX at Eko Pearl Towers, Eko Atlantic, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The song was recorded after MI Abaga slightly modified the subject matter. Both rappers then decided to title it, ‘Crown of Clay.’

The production is top-notch as can be crediting the amazing production skills of the seasoned producer, Pheelz. It’s characterized by a melodious choral section and Mike Dean-Esque bleating bass riffs as well as authoritative African drums that get supported by elements of African percussion.
Vector delivers in English and Yoruba. He also delivers impressive hardcore lines filled with quotable and a subtle commentary on the commotion that is the audio-based social media platform, Clubhouse.
After MI Abaga opened the bar off, he provided a female balance to Vector’s male perspective. It was also interesting that Abaga, made reference to the Yoruba god of thunder, while also mentioning praying to God.
After both rappers launched onto the scene more than 10 years ago, it’s interesting that their names still largely keep the fire burning in Nigerian Hip-Hop. Thus, this collaboration is perfectly-timed, not late.
It also begs the question, are these two the only rappers in the industry? While most switched to commercialized music after a little while in order to be more famous and earn more, MI Abaga and Vector have stuck to their guns which is highly commendable.

The song was mixed by Beats By Jay and mastered by Michael Manitshana, a 25-year veteran. Pheelz the producer provided backing vocals and the hook which was surprising to most.
