What is happening to this society?
Where are our values?
What is our nation turning into?
Why are adults watching things go bad?
What if we were to be judged by our actions?

Fellow Nigerians
I strongly suggest that Mr. Jude (M.I) Abaga be arrested and jailed without trial.
You may not agree with me at this point but wait until the end of this article, and then you can make up your mind for or against my suggestion.

While growing up I was taught not to ever teach other people how to do things even when I know better.
I’ve always known the positive impact constant power supply, good road network and affordable housing will have on the Nigerian economy but will never be the one to suggest it to Baba go slow instead I will let another adult in the person of Governor Babatunde Fashola teach him that. I pay my tax and that’s how far I want to go.

I am a complete Nigerian (with Igbo Papa and Mama) resident in Lagos State and as an adult, I will not sit back and watch a kid destroy careers built over years. I will never support a kid that is trying to turn artistes into “Former rappers” .Tufiakwa!
Why should I support a talented young man that wants his colleagues to quit rap music and take up jobs as bowling instructors during the day and car park attendants at night? I hope you now see my reason.

M.I dropped his debut album “Talk About It” on the 1st of December 2008 and while we were still trying to get used to his tight beats and smooth lyrics, M.I went on to release a new single from his “Illegal Music” project.(Illegal music is another gist all together).
This young man has sampled D’banj’s “Mo gbono feli feli” beat and created an entirely different song from it.

Tell me, why should such a brilliant young man be allowed to walk the streets of Lagos without chains and ear plugs? Do you know the effect it will have on the number of Unemployed Nigerians? Think about it for few minutes ………
Rumor has it that he has rapped on every TV commercial jingle.

Fellow good citizens
We should advocate for his arrest.
He should be arrested and locked up without access to any form of music or musical instrument, while Jesse Jags should NOT be allowed to visit him.ok maybe KEL
Let us nip this situation in the bud or risk turning some of our artistes into Nollywood actors and actresses.
I’ve uploaded his latest work “I’m Hot” to support my motion
Let me know where you stand

    OMG!!! m so loving M.I right now, i think he’s the best thing that happened to the Nigerian music industry in ’08, he def deserves album of the year or somfin lyk dat, he’s rhymes are jus too maaaaaaaaaaad.

    Not a huge comment leaver, but i had to drop a comment.
    Nice article, seems this is your style of writing. Catchy headings and intriguing words to keep the readers’ attention to the last word.
    Plus, i like the track.

  7. Chika

    January 17, 2009 at 8:32 am

    Problem is music producers don’t have the right legal system to protect their artists! That is horrid! And completely classless and tasteless on MI’s part!

  8. Bella

    January 17, 2009 at 8:41 am

    LOL…Chika, the article was tongue-in-cheek!
    MI had D’Banj’s permission to use the track

  9. Laolu

    January 17, 2009 at 8:50 am

    Excuse me,sampling is the hallmark of rap music.(Kanye West’s sampling of Daft Punk’s ‘Harder,Better,Faster.Stronger’ for his own “Stronger” is a huge example of this.Even Snoop Dogg’s “Doggy Dogg World”,Jay-Z’s “Izzo” and “Hard Knock Life”,P-Diddy’s “Missing You”,Nas’ “I know I can”,Tupac’s “Till the End of Time”,M.C.Hammer’s “Can’t Touch This” are samples!)It’s one of the things that gives it popular appeal.The ability to take someone’s music and make it unique is a timeless tradition.M.I. is not profiting financially from this track so there’s no question of stealing someone else’s music.His mixtape ‘Illegal Music’,is going to be available for free.If he’s going to sell it,he’ll obtain permission and pay royalties.

    January 17, 2009 at 9:05 am

    @Bella! Don’t quite know much about the rap scene in Naija, but I just figure it’s kinda weak to use someone else’s beat unless it’s a collabo!
    @Laolu, I don’t know about the rappers here in the States either. I just figure originality is the trademark of any true artist.
    Whatever the deal… as long as they are all happy copying of each other, that’s fine. Apparently I miss nothing by not listening to their music.

    Mr. Igwe did not pull off the tongue in cheek thing with this article. MI’s music is great and certainly speaks for itself.

  14. Adamu

    January 17, 2009 at 12:45 pm

    Are talking about different articles here?
    What part of the article said that M.I’s music is not good or would you prefer that the article be written in your local language for proper understanding?
    @Mr Igwe,M.I is the ishh

    January 17, 2009 at 3:37 pm

    Its generally accepted ‘that less is more’…in this light i deem it safe to say mr igwe was tryin to hard on this piece, its satirical nature threw some pple off track as to what the piece actually implied or was tryin to say, in case of next time just use plain old english like “M.I is jus too mulshhhhhh”!!!. Im sure there’ll be less confusion…’nof said.

    January 17, 2009 at 4:46 pm

    Adamu, there is a PERIOD after the “article”. Hope you see it. I was actually responding to Bella. The article is supposedly tongue in cheek but a few people don’t get it as is evidenced by some of the responses. If the article hit the mark, there would be no need for Bella Naija to make that statement. I don’t doubt that Noble Igwe is a good writer but this here article just missed by a little.

    O boi see comments ooo
    Na fight?
    @Don p,there’s a reason it’s called “the ability to read and write”
    It simply means that you’re expected to learn how to read before you write.
    Did your mother not teach you how to read before writing?
    Please stop cursing,educate yourself with the note and ask God for the ability to read before writing in the New Year.
    one last thing,wash your your mouth with omo before replying to this..
    Omo,i like this article.

    Mr writer, it is apparent that a lot of people do not understand Irony. Did you people not do English literature in secondary school. I will explain it to all those who do not understand. The writer is praising M.I for his incontrovertible talent. Check you Webster’s. I guess it’s not only enough to be able to read and write.

  28. Mochi

    January 17, 2009 at 8:43 pm

    Totally agree with ‘chetablog’,the tongue in cheek aspect of the article doesnt really come across. Love M.I,he’s got swag!

    mentally disadvantaged…cmonnn..the piece aint bad..jus wasnt well executed…u need to take the literacy rate of nigeria into consideration…if ur goin to write a satiric piece…myt as well knw the proper way to go bou need to challenge ppls mental ish or woreva..

  34. dante

    January 18, 2009 at 12:45 am

    I agree it wasn’t as well executed in this piece as some of his other works (e.g the one on d’banj which was just brilliant)…but mimz av u read some of the comments here?…they myt as well av lynched Hon Igwe…
    …Nigeria does av a long way 2 go!!

  40. Adamu

    January 18, 2009 at 8:14 am

    @Mimz,what part of the article is difficult to understand?
    I thought this is suppossed to the internet and should he have conducted a survey on their literacy level before writing?
    @Dante,I also think this is his style of writing cos I’ve some of his works.

  41. Adamu

    January 18, 2009 at 8:23 am

    @Cheta,”I don’t doubt that Noble Igwe is a good writer but this here article just missed by a little.”
    Little?where exactly?

  42. mimz

    January 18, 2009 at 12:48 pm

    @ Adamu, take note…i said the piece wasnt well executed, go and read TELL magazine…the last page by Dele Omotunde…then u see good examples of well thought out satiric writing..this one tends to leave the reader in limbo…as in the reader is nt too sure whether to go left or right…if i decide to critique this piece…the whole of bellas website no go reach….wo…’nof said…lets not overflog a very tired horse…almost dead sef…

    @ Dante..yea…now we on the same page…

  43. Adamu

    January 18, 2009 at 2:34 pm

    @Mimz,”as in the reader is nt too sure whether to go left or right”
    He gave you that option and I think all he wanted to do was tell a story of how M.I is making good music and setting standard for older rappers,if you didn’t get that,then you surely need the whole of Bella’s site for the explanation.
    Please state your case and stop begging the likes of Dante to support you.
    By the way,I thought you were going to refer me to something written by you.

    January 18, 2009 at 3:03 pm

    the truth of the matter is this was supposed to be a satirical piece..but the writer LOST it!!he was doing over sabi,over i know how to write!!!

  45. mimz

    January 18, 2009 at 3:33 pm

    y u takin dis personal??? are u bein paid by igwe or sumfin??? only appreciating those who understand where im comin from…not those who think theyre so smart and cant see beyond theyre noses…take a chill pill….u evidently hav a mighty chip on ur shoulder…i got the piece but from some comments u can see that a lot of others didnt…ahem!!!!…..dont forget to pick up ur next copy of Tell …maybe then ull b able to understand what im sayin,see beyond ur nose and make more informed contributions…

    Na cuz do somethin else.

  50. dante

    January 19, 2009 at 1:27 am

    Niran baba!!!
    Igwe (if I am not mistaken) is not beefing him, neither is he ridin on m.i.’s coat-tails for fame…the point of this piece is to project his appreciation of m.i.’s emergence thru the use of irony which, though a very strong literary tool, can be easily misunderstood (well that’s what i’v come 2 bliv judgin by the number of comments calling for igwe’s head!!!…lol)
    But really nuff of the igwe bashing…the point of the article is really how good m.i….do read it again…i’m sure u’d appreciate it.

    Do we really have such a large concentration of blonds on Bella’s site?
    Hot,Hotness,Minz,Niran,Trendy,BFA and the rest…
    why do people rush to leave comments without reading?
    Is really true that if you want to hide something from a black man,then all you need to do is put it in a book.
    @Niran,Noble Igwe does not need to diss M.I to hype himself,if you don’t know him then ask somebody or better still,get a copy of M.I”s album and listen to track 17.There you will hear what M.I thinks of Noble Igwe.
    It’s so sad that people are just taking this out on Noble but knowing him,he would be reading all these while smiling.
    @Hotness,you are as blonde as they come.
    By the way,if you listen to the track above,you would also hear what M.I said about Mr Igwe.
    This is so sad and i wonder why we just hate people who are better than us.

    January 19, 2009 at 10:53 am

    first of all this writer is stupid, he did not just left the beat of the song , this is a freestyle and wud not take away any shine from the original song but rather promote it . and at the beginning he gave a shout out to done jazzy and d banj, showing respect. and what he is sayin is right , if u are not good enough , then step off the rap game , this way we have quality rather than quantity. come correct or dont come at all.

  63. blaze

    Shut up already!
    There’re two things here.
    It’s either you have something personal against Mr Igwe or you are having a very serious MP.
    Why are you just picking out the negative comments?did you not see the positive ones?
    I can swear that the only thing you’ve ever written in your life was/is your name.

    It’s “Don Jazzy’ and not “done jazzy”
    It’s “D’banj” and not “d banj”

    Wow… people really have no patience nowadays… This article is making a joke! Calm down, guys! The whole point is that M.I. is soooo good that he cld put other musicians out of work cos he blows them out of the water… get it? “Turning rappers into former rappers” as he put it. Ppl shld read stuff b4 they slate the poor guy who by the way has done a good job- attention grabbing title and all.

    Today’s biggest rappers ( e.g Jay Z and Kanye) did the same thing, they sampled other artist’s music. Infact in the present world, talent is not about creating something entirely new, its the ability to make something existing better or almost perfect.
    My point is the artist in question (although i havent heard any of his tracks) was able to do this and i guess he did it quite well, if not we would not be having this discussion

  87. Boondock

    January 20, 2009 at 4:59 am

    Isi gini? Ok first off, it appears as though Noble doesn’t mean any harm (using qualifiers like talented, brilliant) plus I know he is M.I’s friend on facebook. Nonetheless his literary coordination needs work, he attempts sarcasm but doesn’t quite get it.

    His second (or third) paragraph depending on how u acknowledge paragraphs is a total miss hit…it’s like saying I know what is good but I’ll not teach anyone how to do good, I’ll just wait for someone else to do it…that mentality is what drove our nation down the drain in the first place.

    The piece needs cleaning up and better clarity, I’m surprised this actually passed Bellanaija’s editor(s), that’s bad rep in my opinion.

    Let me mention that am a college student, I do not know M I but am curious to go listen to his music. This article doesn’t make any kind of sense, even in Yoruba. As a writer, you need to make sense and be clear (even when attempting sarcasm). I read it four times and I am still not sure I got the full message. I like your courage and your form of writing, pretty intriguing.

  92. blaze

    January 20, 2009 at 9:26 am

    That paragraph portrays M.I as”Gov Fashola” a younger rapper with focus and older rappers as “Baba Go slow” .gerrit..?

    January 20, 2009 at 11:21 am

    I have to agree – the intention was good, and I like the angel he was trying to take (it has definitely received lots of attention), but it wasn’t executed with clarity… a little editing by the BellaNaija crew would have cleaned things up nicely.

    Asides from the fact that you are a perfect prey (where p=f ,r and e=o and y equals to L, I am also bored. Like I am sure you were before you decided to write that comment. While it’s really debatable whether MI has done something new, I can bet the most notable thing you’ll ever do in life is die. and finally get noticed by a sober few! Now that’s the difference between you and MI. When he steps on a stage, every body notices. It’s not just that he always has a command perfomance (without back up dancers and all that)but he has this orgasmic aura around him. If you understand music, you would understand. He does not wear that lack of confidence that you see hanging down the neck of new artistes, neither does he hide behind the facade of impressive accomplishments he has been recording and that my dear is most incredible and rare to come accross. So sugar,next time you think an artiste making waves has done little or nothing to garner hype or praise, consider how your foot prints would fade faster than poorly dyed 10 year old jeans. Except you can beat that artiste’s achievements. Or even write better english than you did here.

  101. Boondock

    January 20, 2009 at 4:33 pm

    Im sorry but that paragraph is still a miss hit regardless of whoever is supposed to be representing M.I and other rappers. It lacks the simplest degree of literary finesse, and has no valid connection to the subject of the article.

    Blaze, relax, listen to the point… there is some truth to what Boondock says. Being able to appreciate the other side of an argument is a good thing. Irony and sarcasm are all well and good, but they need to be handled properly, or else you end up with a cloudy message, which is what has happened here. I think BellaNaija’s editors could have edited the piece a bit to make things clearer. Just my two cents, and not ‘as anyone’ – we are each entitled to our own opinion.

    Towabs, you obviously dropped out of junior secondary school , (a Jakande one at that ) as well skipped the other comments. Oya, be good and check up satire or irony in your dictionary. Then come back for some free qualitative tuition. You’ll need it.

    M.I. is absolutely fabulous!!! To me, he is outstanding.
    He might have sampled some beats, eh heh? kini big deal? After all, he is not the first to have done it neither will he be the last.
    Try and assass M,I, as a brand in the music industry, His style is different, lyrics r tight, personal image is hot and trendy. Give the guy some credit abeg.

    Listen to his song ‘for ever’. it might convince you.

But if you’ll just snap back from your fantasy land, you’ll realize that soft journalism and sensational journalism is in a world of it’s own.

  127. La Verite

    January 21, 2009 at 9:55 pm

    Stumbled on this article quite by accident. Now I understand why NIgeria as a whole is in a standstill. When I first read this, I thot….. ironic article, then I read the last set of commens and thot maybe not…..I had to read all the comments to be doubly sure of my first thot. The problem is the ones that dont understand confuse the ones that do and leave eberyone in a no-win situation.

    I agree that to an extent the article was not well pulled off. But I am sure that if a poll is taken now nobody here will be able to write anything close to this article so I suggest the criticisms stop….if I am lying give it a try. Nigerians are good at criticisiing but give em a chance to do the job and they flop hopelessly!

    I also agree that to an extent the article should have been written to the average Nigerian or African;s understanding… the same time with the educational std in our beloved country you may have to write at the level of a primary school kid for all to undastand! Basically, Mr. Igwe you need to try and achieve a balance and you are close but still need a bit of work, but GOOD JOB!

    NOW, Blaze and Blowjob (sound like one person using dual identities), even if you feel someone is dumb you dont have to insult them, like they say its beter to be quiet and a fool than open your mouth and confirm it. At first I thot mayb u 2 were sensible but later on, u confirmed by yourself that you need help.

    This is an INTELLIGENT discussion not a forum for every ape who dint pass Common Entrance and therefore lacks commonsense to come and spew rubbish.

    FINAL THOT: Good attempt….I am a writer and I can probably write better but it took a lot of practice to get there. He tried but he needs to acheive that balance and he is getting there. So for those who do not have any literary appreciation exercise your freedom and log off the internet!

    Mr. Igwe…..keep your head up! Good attempt but fine-tune it next time. I have no doubt that you are talented. And am sure that 90% of the commentators cannot do even half what you did so….CARRY GO!

    You need to calm down when giving your opinion. You don’t have to insult people to make a point, granted, I wasn’t directly insulted, nonetheless you come across as bellicose and angry. No one is fighting with you, we are just expressing opinions.

    @ La Verite… good to know you are a writer but pls let someone who has read your articles come here and acknowledge that. I recognised some other writers who have made comments here but did not feel the need for public acceptance and thus sling their vocation in our faces.
    As to the writer’s need to consider the educational level ( as u said ) Are you implying you want him to sound as dumb as you feel the educational system allows ? Reading is an intellectual exercise. Just like swimming , you are not expected to go to the deep end if you cannot handle it. While I cannot be extremely bothered about the writer’s skill but also welcome the idea of healthy criticism, I think it is funny to hear you talk about him having to balance bla bl bla and in the same vein rate his article as good Job. (egbon teacher!)Sugar, make up your mind ! For a writer you should know there’s a sharp distinction among the terms, bad, fair ,good and excellent.
    Also, for some one who says we should not insult dumb people, won’t you accept it is hypocritical and dumber of you to say Blaze and I need help ? And in case your shallow writer sense did not notice, I only picked on insultive people or the deranged too-knows like you.
    Baby, take chill pills. Or better still go and get a good lay. I am sure after that those cobwebs clear the notion that you are a crappy writer and thinker would clear faster. (and add Pscycho – analyst ) since you joined the other dumbos in deducting that I and Blaze are one (Eureka Not !). Once more, get a good lay (more like fuck)for even imagining that i would be that bored or chicken livered as to take on a dual personality on a site that allows for anonymous feedback.

    On that note, I’ll end by saying the article works and is still working. I learnt somethings I did not know about MI and I also learnt that the writer is evil and dirty.I love the headline and I love M.I ( He has a nice ass and even nicer lines) and I am having fun !!!

    I couldn’t care less what your opinion is on this topic seeing as you have been constantly worked up over it.But do you not think that qualifying people(moreso,those that will most definately remain nameless and faceless characters to you) as with down syndrome is NOT funny?
    You think down syndrome is a JOKE?something to use to try and get the one-up over strangers on the internet?that doesn’t make you hard or as some would say “she/he fit yabb”.
    It’s a cheap shot at best and a weak attempt at the most.Maybe you should take a trip down to your nearest school for special needs children etc,and open up your obviously enclosed mind,and see that those with down syndrome do not generally fit into the type of picture you are trying to paint your e-enemies with.or better yet,talk to a mother with a child with down syndrome,and up your mind.
    It’s a shame when people want to insult others etc and feel it’s okay to say they are stupid or dumb with words like “retard” “down-syndrome” etc.
    Those words you so casually sling are some other peoples reality you know.
    And besides is it THAT serious? REALLY is it?
    Yes we are all allowed once in a while to get angry over issues over the net etc,a few words get traded,BUT common,isn’t there a time to just stop?WHY the constant anger?WHY?over what?M.I?Noble Igwe?

    Over this issue,obvious multiple ids have been created,things have been said that just make one wonder if there is more to all this than meets the eye.Even “innocent” bystanders who just want to drop a comment wonder if its a good idea as nobody knows who is attacking who.

    Please there is a limit to everything,let us try and channel our passion to other more productive things.Coming on here and still seeing this “battle” raging is just so boring now,not to mention distracting.
    You can come back,hurl insults at me,mudsling for all i care,i have spoken my piece and choose to rest my case.
    All i know and stand by is that its not THAT serious.

    All he is saying is that MI is so good that he should be jailed….its an ironic piece…or however you choose to term it.

    Blowjob, you really are a waste of time and you obviously failed English language as well. I said it was a ‘good job’ not the best or exceptional….if u understand what that means it is simply saying good attempt but you can do better. As for the rest, my dear, I have better things to do than reply the ramblings of a confused mind……… on the other hand…….well…..thats another story.

    hey u fakeguy, have u ever heard of the word sarcasm….u mofoz don’t read the article properly, hence jump into incoherent conclusions. Its a rather sad situation especially for the fact that u get aggressive over ur own stupidity. It really to a great extent shows ur level of intellect ; slow to understand,quick to insult. If u don’t go work on ur English understanding skills, u will find urself wasting more than 15 minutes of ur life u will neva get back ….which leaves me with one question: who’s d asshole now?!

    why do i smell the hate factor??? i think y’all are just haters and y’all needa chill and give the guy a break. and until y’all each come out with at least a single hit that makes as much as a ripple in the music industry, just do us all a favor (actually, me- do me a favor) and shut it. and that will be all- for now. pswt.

    Adunni, mother Theresa…heya…so down syndrome is not a joke. ha, i never knew o. Queen of charity. I hope it’s not your reality. When other pple described some as being did not occur to you that there are actually mad people on the streets of the world abi ? Pls spare me. You probably call your man names and all what not. and the other people that labeled otheres for no reason nko ? asides from what you stated, what excatly’s ur point ? u just wanted some attention right ?

    @ La verite, I feel honoured that you replied me twice. I’ll get soon as you stop hiding behind people and feeling intellectually superior with your blocked writer self. at least we now acknowledge that ur a writer.

    Ko easy after 4 days u say we should shut it ? Lol ! that’s bullying !

    January 29, 2009 at 7:40 am

    Simply awesome, I think he is the hottest rapper outta naija at the moment. Also he did reference Don Jazzy and D’Banj. Whoever is not reading the article well needs to go back and take their O’Levels again.

    Art, in whatever form, is to be appreciated, ( I daresay revered), constructively criticized where necessary and enjoyed. It is not to be ridiculed by shallow comments bordering on abject ignorance or from the darkest hues of envy. If you liked the piece, fine, it’s your opinion, if you didn’t, it’s your opinion and it’s still fine, do a critique and move on. Emphasis here is on the words : MOVE ON!

    February 1, 2009 at 10:36 am

    its a lie….nothing like sarcasm there….he had a thesis statement quite alright but it was not supported properly, i even got confused @the first two paragraphs…wat has m.i’s arrest got to do with constant power supply, gov. fashola and bowling houses???? pls tell me…even the sarcasm he may have intended was not properly expressed….WTF!!!

  170. Benny Bing

    February 3, 2009 at 12:24 am

    Wait! Do I understand this right? You are ranting becos he sampled a d’banj beat? Wow… With all due respect, your whole article doesnt make sense. I respect the fact that he is not rapping about “Yahoo” which is equivalent to “crack music” in the US market. Let talent shine, dont hate. Well, its your website and you are free to talk any ish you want. How did i even stop here?

    hahahaha @ yanks…ur a confused personn ohh. im sorry
    no he’s not sayin he’s ill/sick..
    sickest is a metaphor for very good, talented etc..

  173. yanks

    February 11, 2009 at 8:59 am

    lol @innocent..

    i know waht hes tryin to say, however my point was he used the same approach of wiritng that the writer used and he was confused! so he mentions “sickest” rapper and i he ill?!..(get it) 🙂

    Man………..ur whole article was completely misdirected and stupid

    David Bot: seriously. find something better to do cuz if M.I was into writing, you will be out of business

    March 10, 2009 at 1:05 pm

    ..with all due respect, learn to follow your thesis statement with facts that flow and support the thesis. Theres nothing for me to support. All I can say is M.I’s the best rapper in naija n if u feel different, please tell us who’s better! This writeup is extremely poor…heck, now everyone can have a blog!!!

    March 13, 2009 at 6:27 am

    Seriously, this article is just a load of BS, i don’t even now how i got to this page in the first page. Im sure you are someone who’s just started blogging and is still getting used to some minor attention you’re getting. An advise for you, get a girlfriend and u might get to relieve all those overblown tension you got. Peace!

    April 3, 2009 at 2:10 pm

    Your article successfully raised a false alarm and I got more confused reading the entire article. Your claims were so ridiculous that I was left alone to wonder if u were musically inclined in any way at all. M.I. remains the best rapper in Naija so far. Like He himself would say”Other rappers are distant, they should have listened” . Next time if u have nothing to write, write NOTHING!

  187. Khnightwulka

    May 19, 2009 at 12:07 am

    M.I is ok but why would he want to sound like Kanye west and Lil wayne, let him creat his oqn styl and move on wit it, instead of sampling peoples bitz,lyrics and swag……………I still prefer a Naeto c and an Ikechukwu (killz) to this dude,,,,,,,,,,a ruggedman fan 4 ever………….
