M.I. Abaga was the only artist among the list of selected speakers at the TEDx Maitama in Abuja over the weekend.
The rapper showed a side of himself people rarely see. The Chocolate City Music boss discussed his ideas with a community of people in Abuja.
An advocate for feminism, he highlighted the team was made up of predominantly young women who spoke a common language to achieve the goal of TEDx Maitama.
TEDx Maitama held at Dunes Centre in Abuja on Saturday 14 July, with the theme “What Next?”
M.I. spoke passionately about the reason, challenges, and effects of “building up” in the society, citing the biblical tower of Babel and how the barrier of language was able to ruin the goal to build a tower already on its way to completion.
Citing multiple examples in both his role as CEO and artist, M.I. emphasized the immense need for unifying the society with the objective of creating value. He encouraged the crowd to focus on the goal of getting the work done irrespective of the challenges that come because the reward is in the feeling of satisfaction derived.
