Nigerian singer Shasha Damilola Alesh, better known as Dice Ailes, has explained why he sees himself as the greatest of all time in the music industry.

The singer, who is known for the hit singles “Otedola” and “Ella”, revealed this while answering questions about the concept of his new music video “Dice Baba”, which was released on June 28, 2024.

He said: “I have influenced the new generation of Afrobeats artists, both in sound and fashion. I see myself as one of the GOATS in the game.”

His new claims have sparked debate among music lovers on social media.

In 2022, music producer CKay, who produced some of Dicey’s first records when they were both in Chocolate City, said that together they created a whole new wave of Afrobeats.

“During my CC days, Dice Ailes and I created a sound that spawned a whole new wave of Afrobeats. It’s so funny how some people today twist the narrative and say we copied a sound we created ourselves lol,” CKay wrote.
