MI Abaga Reveals In A Video Call - "I Knew Wizkid First, I Would Have Signed Him Before Banky W”

MI Abaga Reveals In A Video Call – “I Knew Wizkid First, I Would Have Signed Him Before Banky W”

Nigerian sensational rapper, MI Abaga has revealed how he would have singed Wizkid before Banky W did.

MI Abaga made this known in a recent Instagram live session with Triple MG boss, Ubi Franklin. According to him, he could have given Wizkid a record deal when the ‘Ojuelegba’ singer started out in the industry. He stated that he couldn’t do so because Jesse Jagz and Ice Prince hadn’t made their debut yet.
He added, “I knew Wizkid first and I think Banky W had heard him on a song (too). Wizkid was much focused when we started working. When I met him, I thought we could have given him a record deal and Wizkid would have taken it back then. However, you have to remember that this was before Chocolate City had any clout. I couldn’t sign him because Jesse Jagz and Ice Prince hadn’t ‘‘come out’.”
Abaga also recalled that his computer ‘crashed’ when he first produced the songs on his debut album, ‘Talk About It’. “My system crashed when I wanted to record my first album so I had to go over it again and reproduced everything. I produced every thing on the ‘Talk About It’ album apart from ‘Fast money, Fast cars’ with Wizkid. It came out and all of a sudden, people started praising me,” he said.
The rapper also revealed that everyone thinks he is funny and one of his secret goals Is to tell jokes at a stand-up comedy show. “Everybody thinks I am very funny. However, one joke got me into trouble recently. People around me think I am funny. Comedy is not always about the joke; it’s also about the timing and delivery. One of my secret goals is to tell jokes at a stand-up comedy show. I know it’s going to be bad, but it’s to just go on stage and tell those jokes and see what happens. If I mess up, then so be it.”

American superstar rapper, Nicki Minaj, shares the same sentiments as myriads of Wizkid fans and well-wishers worldwide, in that she concurs to the argument the trendsetting crossover record-breaking single from Wizkid’s 2020 released “Made In Lagos” album, Essence should be in the conversation for the coveted “Record of the Year” plaque at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.

Irrespective of the snub, Nicki whilie on Joe Budden TV (YouTube) as a guest on the special episode tagged A Conversation With Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden agreed with the host (Joe Budden) when he said “We need people on the Grammy board that know that “Essence” was song of the year” with an exclamatory “Right! Right!” response. She even proffered, “We should have our own Grammy Board“, in support of many and the popular believe that Black Americans or black artistes in general are always stereotyped to a particular category at the award show, if indeed they made it to the top categories, they barely win; Nicki Minaj does not have a Grammy Award herself and that is still a shock to many, especially when considering her refined catalogue of music.
