MI Abaga and journalist Joey Akan Argue on Twitter
Written by maxfmeditor2 on May 20, 2022
Nigerian rapper, MI Abaga, and journalist Joey Akan are currently trending on Twitter after they took to the platform to throw jabs at each other.
The drama started after the music critic took to Twitter to shade Nigerian rappers after none of them met with American rapper Dababy when he came to Nigeria to shoot a music video with Davido.
The shade was apparently aimed at MI Abaga and YCee after they lashed out over the absence of rappers at the Rick Ross Live In Concert in Nigeria last month.
M.I, who came across the shady tweet about Dababy’s visit didn’t take it well and decided to engage him in back and forth dragging.
In one tweet, the rapper branded the Journalist as ‘insecure’ and claimed he was insulting ‘people to feel better.’ He also went on to call him an “enemy” of the community and told him he was no longer welcome in “Nigeria’s hip-hop community.”
Joey Akan one of his tweets claimed that he stood up to M.I multiple times when he wanted to use him to attack an artist. He also accused the rapper of ruining the careers of several artists in the industry.
See their exchange below.
Why is Dababy not having one-on-one with local Nigerian rappers? No meet-and-greet? No hailings? “wE nEeD tHE CUltuRe to resPect Nigerian wrappers.” You rappers should go and drag Davido na. Since entitlement is usually your first name
You have a small mind.. so not sure you understand what false equivalency is.. What’s d point of dis tweet? To insult rappers for wanting respect? I guess self respect would be an offensive idea to you. Insecure little Joey insulting people to feel better grow up
Jude, once upon a time, you didn’t have to demand respect from anybody. Your artistic impact automatically gave you that. Ask why you are demanding it now. Tell your people the truth, MI Abaga. Stop crying over Rick Ross on Twitter. You dishonour us, rap and your legacy.
And their exchange went on and on…
