MI quits Chocolate city, unveils independent label15 views
MI Abaga has unveiled his independent record label, Incredible Music.
On Friday, March 6, the Nigerian rapper MI Abaga announced his official departure from the record label, Chocolate City. He served the label for thirteen years prior to ending his affiliation with the label.
Moving forward, he unveiled his self-owned record label, Incredible Music and TASCK, a company which handles Corporate Social Responsibilities.
On Incredible Music, MI Abaga has released his 10th studio project, Judah The EP – it is also his first release under Incredible Music.
In 2007, the talented rapper joined Chocolate City and in 2015, he assumed the role of CEO. Under the label, he released nine projects – five albums, three mixtapes and one playlist. In 2008, he released his critically acclaimed and impactful debut, Talk About It. In 2010, he released his magnus opus, MI2: The Movie.
During that run, he also won two awards at the 2009 MTV Africa Music Awards – a huge milestone for a rapper in a pop era. It was also during that run that he started the mixtape trilogy, Illegal Music. With the label, he also tried his first imprint, Loopy Music and signed MILLI. While that was ill-fated, MI Abaga did enjoy a stellar nine-year association with Chocolate City.
