Nigerian Rapper, MI Abaga Addresses Choc Boiz Break Up
MI Abaga, rapper and record label executive, has released the video for ‘Brother’, four years after the song was recorded.
‘Brother’, which featured Nosa and Milli, was released on the rapper’s 2014 album ‘The Chairman’.
The emotional song told the story of the Choc Boiz, which comprised of Jesse Jagz, Ice Price and Brymo, and their much-publicised falling out.
On the song, the ‘Bad Belle’ rapper sought to mend fences with the crew after they all went their separate ways.
Abaga said the video was shot after the song came out, but he held back on releasing it.
“I shot a video for ‘Brother’ in 2015 and never put it out because so much about the spirit and the message of the song was lost in events that happened during that period,” he said in an Instagram post on Saturday.
“Eventually in the fallout, I was accused of doing things I did not do, and vilified in the media without ever speaking up about it. Needless to say when I released the video I decided against releasing it.
“Because I am not a perfect person and have also wronged others, I have decided to forgive everyone and move past that moment in time.
“So here it is, years after it will even have any meaningful relevance, the video I created hoping that it will heal broken friendships and relationships.
“I guess ironically, it is even more meaningful now.”
