I’m low budget Jesus – Phyno

Igbo language rapper and record producer, Phyno, has described himself as low-budget Jesus, referencing what some consider his resemblance to the leader of the Christian faith.

The 33-year-old made the claim in an Instagram post on Monday.


Wearing his trademark beard, short curly hair and cross earring, the man born Chibuzor Azubuike tagged the picture “low budget Jesus.”

Phyno has used Jesus Christ and other Christian elements in some of his hit songs.

He calls ‘Fada Fada’ a ghetto gospel while the video of ‘So Far So Good’ was shot with a live band at the West Hunter Baptist Church in the US.
