MI Abaga Criticizes Fani-Kayode’s Response to Falae’s Abduction



Nigerian Hip Hop superstar MI Abaga is not happy with Femi Fani-Kayode‘s recent comments about Olu Falae‘s abduction.

According to Vanguard, Fani-Kayode had earlier stated that if anything happens to the abducted former Secretary to Government of the Federation (SGF), and Afenifere chieftain, Federal Government would be held responsible, as there would be consequences.

Well, MI wasn’t amused, and he took to his Twitter to express his displeasure:

    And how many threats did he throw at GEJ with all the killings in the north? Oh i guess because they are not his ‘kinsmen’, it does not matter? Elder statemen lives matter, ‘commoner: lives matter, children lives matter, Hausa/Fulani lives matter, Yoruba lives matter, Igbo lives matter, Ijaw lives matter, Efik lives matter……All lives matter!

    FFK…loose talker, attention seeker, so it’s FG that sent abductors to kidnap Pa Olu Falae right? you obviously don’t think before opening that thing you call mouth, but if it was PDP that won presidency, you would not blame them if anything happens to Pa Olu Falae shey? must you politicize everything? it’s so low and disgusting… as MI rightly said, what a normal thinking person at your level should do is pray for Pa Falae’s safe return, not your usual empty and silly threats, all the rubbish you said during the General Elections, how many of it have you carried out now? it’s so obvious you are a complete joke, it’s such a shame.

    I generally find FFK queer and his statements most times leave much to be desired. No one should threaten the government- there’s always that thin line between freedom of speech, sedition and treasonable felony. Having said that, I will turn to Mr Abaga, I really like your music, you have has also come a long way from your J-town days…..I am however a firm believer that fame should never be an end but a means to an end. MI, God has blessed you with fame, use it for a cause that will outlive your music. MI you are from Taraba, one of the states where people are massacred everyday by fulani herdsmen aka “unknown gunmen”, You also have strong links to Jos where the local indigenes live a nasty brutish life at the mercy of these rogues- Barkin Ladi, Bokkos, Riyom…MI, im sure you are more aware of these things than I am. I have never heard you speak or lend your voice to these people who die everyday, people who have become statistics of the Nigerian state….MI lend your voice to them, let the world know their plight, they are your people.

    I love that you not appreciate attacks on government, I would have been really happy if you had also made similar statements when Lawal Kaita and the Northern Elders had promised to make Nigeria Ungovernable for Jonathan. The seat of the president (and the government by extension) was denigrated in the last administration, while we chose sides, we forgot that the seat remains while the occupants come and go. A terrible precedent was set in the name of “opposition”……

    Like I said, I find FFK’s utterances very appalling but in the context that the Nigerian state seems to only respond to threats and violence, perhaps this may seem like the “best” line of action. Maybe if TY Danjuma, Yakubu Gowon, JT Useni and co rise up to speak up for their people in the north central, this ongoing genocide will be addressed…. what do I know…?

      In fairness to MI, he did rap/sing about the killings in Jos

      MI actually speaks out about the Jos situation often, visits the affected areas and has spearheaded fundraising activities for the victims. Get your facts straight abeg.

    You make sense as always. This here is an educated mind commenting. Your education is not in vain.

    FFK does go over the top at times. But then like you rightly said, the opposition in the last regime gave opposition a vile and violent meaning. Power by any means possible. Anything goes. I hope we can retrace our steps when opposition does not mean burning down the country but constructively criticising while showcasing a better alternative.

    MI face your career; you always seek relevance when there are logs in your eye. Speak up for your people being killed everyday by herdsmen and allow FFK to speak for his people. Abi you de find contract to sing on october 1st ; no i mean rap !!

    Actually MI says a lot about the killings in Jos and even went as far as having an awareness and fund-raising concert. Please be aware of facts before you talk.
