Nigerian rapper, MI Abaga mentioned notable Igbo celebrities who have influenced him positively in the entertainment sector. He also mentioned that Igbos are quintessential stakeholders in the country.
MI Abaga published a video on Wednesday afternoon; to address the now-deleted statement published by the Nigerian president, Muhammadu Buhari; on the social media platform, Twitter.
The talented Nigerian rapper chastised the Nigerian head of state; calling his statement insensitive and bitter.
It would be recalled that on Tuesday, June 1, President Muhammadu Buhari threatened to deal with people; who want to instigate a division amongst the people. The president likewise made allusions to the civil war that took place in 1967.
MI Abaga has now taken to social media to tell Igbo natives that they loved; and deserve to be celebrated.
“I can’t imagine being an Igbo citizen and seeing those tweets yesterday.
I can’t imagine the way it would have made them feel.
So I thought it would be beautiful today to tell our Igbo brothers and sisters; that we love them,” he said.
The rapper also continued;
“We cannot fix the years of pain; we cannot fix that feeling of not being wanted or being loved.
That is not going to be the narration of our generation.”
“We love you, you are part of us.
This is for my manager Abuchi, Don Jazzy; D Prince; Chidinma; Blackbonez; Phyno, Flavour; Kelechi Amadi; so many people that have given so much to this country, we love you and we stand with you today.
We are Igbo too. Bless.”

The narrative that "Nigeria hates Igbo people" is an outdated context that will leave with the old and bitter generation
