Nigerian rapper and Chocolate City recording artiste, Jude “MI” Abaga was blasted for campaigning for the gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Akinwunmi Ambode via his instagram page.
MI shared a photograph of the gubernatorial aspirant captioned “Your excellency sir!!! Vote for A+”
However, most of MI‘s fans are not in support of his involvement in politics in this way. One of them said MI had said in a show hosted by On Air Personality, Toolz that he will not advertise for any politician.
I know what am saying. For @mi_abaga he once told us all when @Toolz of beatfm asked him if heis going to do any advert for any politician and @mi_abaga replied her saying that his music and his personality has nothing to do with any politician, that politicians do promise and fail…. @mi_abaga bros you just screwed us all…. #BankAlert I guess
MI Abaga‘s current album, Chairman, is making major airwaves and he has beeen spotted on several commercials for Akinwunmi Ambode. See reactions below.
