I don’t need to do music to survive –MI


Jude Abaga, better known as MI, has made a

name in the music industry in Nigeria. But the

rapper has been on a break in the music scene for

about four years without releasing an album,

though he still headlines shows.

In a recent chat with Saturday Beats, the rapper

said that he does not need music to survive as his

endorsements alone put food on his table.

He said, “People have been saying whatever they

like but I have been blessed that I don’t need to

make music to survive. But now is the right time

for me to come out because the music is there

and the story is there. I stayed away waiting for

the right time. Whenever you drive through Lagos

or anywhere in the country and you see my face,

you would know what I have been doing to


He also debunked rumours that he was under any

pressure especially from his brother to release an

album. Currently his latest song, King James, is

topping charts and the rapper advised that

musicians should sing socially conscious songs.

“Although I did not release an album in over four

years, my younger brother released two in about

six months but I was not pressured in any way.

The competition between me and Jesse Jagz has

been over years ago. We have been doing this for

years and he won. I am on a different path

making different music. I am on my own path

making my own kind of music and my advice to

everyone making music is to make songs that feel

right. Every artiste should do music to raise social

awareness,” he said.
