The rapper Ice Prince, a native of Nigeria, has provided information regarding the breakup of the rap trio Choc Boiz.
A collection of musicians from Chocolate City, the record company, was known as Choc Boiz.
M.I. Abaga, Jesse Jagz, Ice Prince, and Brymo made up the group.
Ice Prince recently said in a podcast interview with Echooroom that the reason for the breakup was “growth.”
The rapper claimed that in order to develop upcoming artists in the business, they felt compelled to independently own their platforms.
“What happened to Choc Boiz? I would say it is growth,” he said.
“Then I do not know if it was a miscalculation or whatever but one thing that we did back then was we go got to a point where we thought that people like M, people like Jesse, people like Ice, should start up their own companies so we can allow younger artistes come in the game.
“If you remember, there was a time when Chocolate City started looking for young artistes, you know, young artistes like Koker, Ckay, Blaqbonez, had to come in. Now those artistes cannot be sharing a budget with you know that is what it was.”
In 2018, M.I Abaga also addressed the disbandment of Choc Boiz.
He said, “I was accused of doing things I did not do and vilified in the media without ever speaking up about it.”
He added that he decided to “forgive” because he is not perfect.
