At some point during the conversation, funding the Nigerian music business came to the fore . The acclaimed rapper made a shocking statement that raised several eyebrows. He said: “There’s no bank in the history of Nigeria that has given one Naira to any label. There’s one corporate entity that has given any label. It’s young guys.


“In fact, you’re more likely to get money from a Yahoo boy. Shout-out to Yahoo boys. May God prosper your business.”


During the interview, MI also made a salient revelation, he said Chocolate City was funded  by bootstrapping.
