Rapper Jude Abaga, a.ka. MI
Kore Ogidan & Dayo Adeola
Rapper , Jude Abaga , aka MI , was attacked on social media for defending South African rapper , AKA , who had written on Twitter that Nigerians should stay in their country .
However , in a chat with Saturday Beats , MI stated that his stance didn’ t mean he was supporting xenophobia.
He said , “If you search on Google , you ’ ll see that over the years, AKA has shown Nigeria love and respect .
I felt that dragging his name into something as dangerous as xenophobia was wrong .
“ I simply said what I knew about him not being a xenophobe and being one who loves Nigeria.
I thought my tweet was tasteful and as a person of integrity , I had to speak out honestly in defence of his character because I don’ t think any other Nigerian spoke on his behalf.
In retrospect, the timing probably wasn’ t particularly right .
I wasn’ t standing with him against Nigeria . ”
MI also decried the destruction of some businesses in Nigeria .
He stated, “ We saw a picture of someone who died in the protest .
It ’ s never worth a human life – whether on the side of the xenophobic attacks or the protests here in Nigeria .
I don’ t think that taking property and jobs away from Nigerians in Nigeria is the right outcome .
I hope there will come a time when we would respond to hate with love and react logically when threatened . ”
