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.
