According to him, the relationship he has with Chocolate City is still intact, adding that he wanted to keep the news of his exit on a low.

He explained saying: “Nothing happened to the relationship [with Chocolate City]. We are family for life.”


The producer & Rao artist also said:-

Chocolate City is family. It is time for me to do a new thing musically. Generally, I have had a no-press policy on this issue. The reason is that I don’t want my words to be twisted. I am careful who I answer.”

The Chairman crooner further stated that he is grateful to Chocolate City for all he achieved during his time with them.

After a while, it is time to do a new thing and I am grateful for everything that was,” the songwriter added. “I think right now, it is time for incredible music and for MI to move.”

Also, he claimed that people hardly respect contracts and institutions in Nigeria, lamenting that those who care for musicians are not rightly recognised in the country.

He stated:-

If there is one other thing I would say, it is that Nigeria is a very hard country for somebody that cares about musicians to be in.

“Because at the end of the day, when you really think about it, the Banky W’s are leaving the music business. These are people that have nurtured artistes.”

He, however, expressed satisfaction that he has been able to make impact in the entertainment industry, saying he is very proud of his legacy at Chocolate City.

M.I Abaga explained that he was able to pull out many producers who were doing nothing, admonishing those in the entertainment sector to be kinder to people trying to make things happen in the industry.

“I know how many parents I spoke to when their kids were sixteen or seventeen years old,” M.I noted.

“I am very proud of that. We need to be kinder to people that are trying to do good in our industry.”
