Industry News: Happy Birthday to M.I Abaga!!

A hearty birthday well wishes to M.I Abaga whose birthday is today, Obi Asika who had his a couple of days ago and Stephanie Okereke-Linus. Lots of October celeb birthdays, it feels like and we are barely into the first week.

Specific to M.I, he has been down with AML and was one of my very first subscribers. Prior to starting AML and when I shared my thoughts on NJO, M.I also openly declared his support dubbing my writings as one of the best things that happened in that year. I appreciate you M.I. Thank you. I wish, for you, the very best of the wonderful things you wish for yourself.

By the way, is anyone noticing how M.I has really stepped up his style game at events? I am particularly pleased with the current hair style he is rocking. It is just a sharper and cleaner look.

By the way, shout out to M.I and Chocolate City who back in 2008/2009 understood my vision to try to get African musicians and their work recognized in the states. Back then, something as basic as synchronization of Nigerian music on media clips and video was non-existent. Majority used American music within and outside Nigeria. Times have changed and it is a good look. Watch an older M.I interview:
