Jude Abaga, better known by his stage name M.I., a multi-award-winning rapper and performer, addressed the actions taken by elected officials before the governorship and state house of representatives 2023 elections in a post on his social media platform on Friday, March 10, 2023. Celebrities have also reacted to the postponement of the governorship and state house of representatives elections from March 11 to March 18, 2023, including M.I.
The CEO of Chocolate City stated on his Twitter account that the ongoing actions of the current officeholders demonstrated that the pertinent issues they have been addressing in the days leading up to elections could have quickly been resolved during their four years in office.
M.I. is not the rapper to tweet randomly or be in the news for unintelligible reasons, but when he does, it’s about what is going on in the country or sports or music, like he did last year when Wizkid commented about rap music being dead. M.I., who is also one of the founders of Nigerian rap, responded to the statement by saying that while most rappers had not achieved fame, the hip-hop scene was currently showing signs of promise. He also tried to lift the spirits of up-and-coming rappers by advising them to keep getting better at their craft.
