It’s obvious that there are many deep layers to this diminutive artiste. And what M.I can’t tell through his music he’ll tell you straight up !
If any one ever had ever had any doubt about his incredible talent, it wasn't M.I as he regaled the station crew of Dream 925FM, where he chose to hang out just a few hours before the Star Music Trek concert in Enugu on Saturday,with exciting snippets of his 'grass to grace’ days.
Who knew that in his ‘hustling’ days he was popular Jeremiah Gyang’s Personal Assistant? And that he met Waje and Djinee in Enugu for the first time while struggling to establish his career? And who knew that 7000 miles away from home, (U.S,) a lonely M.I had to resort to washing toilets to put food on his table?
And that even after returning to Nigeria, while passionately nurturing massive dreams of fame and fortune, this artiste also had to work as a waiter at a popular café in Jos?
Does hard work pay? All you have to do is look at M.I’s life to find the answer.
Also the artiste also took time to reiterate his strong passion for indigenous music with popular artistes such as Mr Raw, Olamide and Phyno leading its enormous growth.
M.I said “I’m really proud of these indigenous art forms and it’s a blessing for me to be a part of an industry that has notable artistes such as Olamide, Phyno, Mr Raw and others in it.”
“This is the future of great music in Nigeria,” he added.
