M.I is Nigeria’s most incredible rapper and has been for a long time. The superstar rapper once announced to his fans that he was taking a break from the music scene and caused an uproar from fans, we all know that break didn’t last long before he released King James, a new single that has been rocking the airwaves.
While speaking on Sunrise Daily on Channels TV, he speaks on the real reason he took a break from music and the effect his brother’s departure from Chocolate City record label. He said;
Chairman is a song I released last year, and the next day after I released the song, a couple of changes started happening in the label.First was my brother [Jesse Jagz] wanting to leave which I didn’t know about ,we discussed it and I understood where he was going with that. But, it just sort of changed the dynamic of the label, and what happens with music is that, when you are producing music and relying on people, when that changes you might need some time to reassess and come back. So I was supposed to put out my album last year, but it was a good opportunity for me to re-access and be like this is what I want to do going forward.
Also last year after putting out the chairman song ,all sorts of opportunities came up and I was so busy last year .I was travelling , all over the place and didn’t have time to record
But this year, we made a conscious decision with my management that M.I is not going to do anything until this album is done .
He furthermore said;
We did it twice, you know King James.I released this ambiguous statement that I’m done.I’m sorry. I just wanted to get their attention. I mean, election season is around the corner and i wanted to put out these images that will tell young people before they start advertising to you, have in mind the sort of leader you want.
