Mi abaga exits chocolate city…on Friday, March 6, 2020, He took to his social media page to announce this…. he exited chocolate city; a record label he had represented and associated with for good 13years…..The rap star also announced the start of his new self-owned record label, Incredible Music.
MI Abaga who has released his 10th studio project, Judah The EP said to have done this under Incredible Music, which makes it the first body of work he would do under his self owned record label….
I don’t how many people knew this that MI Abaga had vacated his position as the CEO of Chocolate City before now…..This was revealed by pulse Nigeria on September 13, 2019, following an interview they had with him….This came after Chocolate City announced its deal with Warner Music…….After which Audu Maikori took over the CEO seat again after vacating it in 2015.
It has really been a journey for Mi abaga…..i am sure he has a lot of stories to tell…..his experience would write more than 100 books I guess
MI Abaga joined Chocolate City in 2007, and in 2015, he assumed the role of CEO……Under the label, he released nine projects which are five albums, three mixtapes and one playlist. In 2008, he released his criticaly acclaimed and impactful debut, Talk About It. In 2010, he released his magnus opus, MI2: The Movie.
During that period, he also won two awards at the 2009 MTV Africa Music Awards – a huge milestone for a rapper in a pop era….who remember this???
It was during that run that he started the mixtape trilogy, Illegal Music….With the label, he also tried his first imprint, Loopy Music and signed MILLI..
with the contributions made by the label and also the achievements he could make under the imprint, if we say MI Abaga did enjoy his nine-year association with Chocolate City we wouldn’t be wrong at all
Let’s not forget the numerous awards he won and the time when he was the most sought-after African rapper, which made him build his legitimate claim to being Nigeria’s greatest rapper ever.
And now mi abaga exits chocolate city finally, to start his own label though…. We wish him all the best in this project
