Adewale Abati popularly known as Ace_kyd initiated the challenge in a youtube video of him touring the forloop lagos meet up, prosper otemuyiwa AKA unicodeveloper , Christain Nwamba AKA codebeast and other gangster developers(rappers) dropped their punch lines and damn it was amazing .

Forloop Port Harcourt came up and this time I was the one who initiated it, codebeast gave us the beat, prosper couldn’t drop a line but we nailed back to back.


Nothing much about has being said about #forthecode challenge ever since then until yesterday. #forthecode challenge original Track will be released this year. Neo ighodaro, CTO of hotelsNG on twitter said he’d be working on a #forthecode track and yes it’s gonna be open source.
