M.I. Abaga Discusses His Views On Nigerian-Foreign Collaborations

Nigerian rapper M.I. Abaga talked about his opinions on the growing trend of collaborations between Nigerian and foreign artists.

The amalgamation of varied musical genres and cultural inspirations finds a stage when Nigerian and international musicians collaborate. International artists are interested in Nigerian music because it is so creative and energetic, and because Nigerian musicians like Davido, Burna Boy, and Wizkid have become well-known names in the world music scene.

Afrobeats’ incredible rise to prominence is noteworthy. “Love Nwantiti” by CKay became the most Shazamed song in 2022 after Burna Boy’s album “Love, Damini” debuted at an incredible No. 14 on the Billboard 200. Of particular note, Davido and Lojay succeeded to win their first spot on the Billboard Hot 100 list.

The Chocolate City signee made it clear that his musical taste differs from that of other worldwide performers, highlighting the fact that not all musicians share his taste in music. He urged his fans and anyone who cares to look over his body of work, emphasizing that not every joint endeavor would necessarily further his creative goals.
