Praises Olamide, Phyno, Mr. Raw.
Chocolate Music vice president and rapper, M.I, says indigenous rap is the future of Nigerian music. He said this in an interview session with Enugu based radio station, Dream 92.5 FM, before hitting the stage for the Enugu edition of the Star Music Trek on Saturday.
“I’m really proud of these indigenous art forms and it’s a blessing for me to be a part of an industry that has notable artistes such as Olamide, Phyno, Mr. Raw and others in it,” he said, adding, “This is the future of great music in Nigeria.”
The rapper further shared his ‘grass to grace’ story revealing that he was once a personal assistant to popular singer, Jeremiah Gyang, and that he met Waje and Djinee in Enugu for the first time while struggling to establish his career.
He also revealed how he resorted to washing toilets to earn a living while the U.S. and upon his return from America, had to work as a waiter at a popular café in Jos.
