When Nigerian rapper, M.I started out in the music industry, only a few rappers were available to compete with him.Fast forward to 2017, rappers like Olamide, Phyno and others have become the talk of the town.
However, the self-proclaimed Chairman has said he is not intimidated by these younger artistes, adding that it’s a huge compliment to be compared to them.
Hear him:” I am ten years in the industry since my first song came out in Lagos in 2007 because that’s when Crowd Mentality was released. It is an ultimate compliment for me to be compared with the likes of Olamide, Phyno, Ice Prince and others that came out after me. If you think about my first five years, I was really hot but as you get older, you get tired of saying some things. It is very hard for me to write a song about being in the club. If you hear some certain artistes sing about being in the club, you would say that you’d prefer a younger artiste to sing about that”.
