Jude Abaga, Nigerian rapper better known as MI, has put out ‘TDBK’, his new collaborative single.
The song, which was released in the early hours of Friday, features Sinzu and Erigga, two other musicians.
‘TDBK’ sees the rappers showcase their lyrical prowess in Pidgin English while dwelling on Nigeria’s sociopolitical realities.
MI began his music career when he returned to Nigeria in 2003. Finding his place in an industry dominated by the likes of Modenine, Ruggedman, and Eedris Abdulkareem, he quickly commenced the production of mixtapes.
This led to the critically acclaimed single ‘Safe’, which was followed by the release of his first album ‘Talk About It’. Ever since, MI has made a total of four albums, four mixtapes, two extended plays, and one compilation project.
The 39-year-old rapper had earlier made the headlines after he exited Chocolate City, a record label where he had long been the CEO, saying: “After a while, it is time to do a new thing and I’m grateful for everything that was.
“I think right now, it is time for incredible music and for MI to move. 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. I’m very proud of that.”
