Nigeria’s shortest and one of the most talented Hip-Hop rappers, who refers to himself as “The Chairman”, Jude MI Abaga, has just opened up on his relationship issues.
Anybody that asks me about my relationship status knows that I would never answer because I feel it should be private. Let’s say I have a girlfriend and I say that I am getting married, the ripple effect would be crazy. For me to make that statement, I may have to inform potential side chicks that I am about to make a press statement and they should not be offended.
I may have to call their parents to tell them that I am making such a statement. The implications are far reaching and because of that I feel, if you want to have a real life, you have to protect your privacy no matter how much the media snoops around. That being said, when I am ready, everyone would know. When you declare that you are getting married, it might offend someone somewhere.”
Speaking on what inspired his song One naira, in his “The Movie” album, he said:
“When I was writing the song, ‘One Naira,’ there was a girl I was dating at the time. She is dead now. At that time, I remember that we used to ride on motorcycle to meet each other. It was normal then. She could not come to my house neither could I go to hers, so we would meet at an eatery. When we get to the eatery, we couldn’t just sit without buying anything so we could buy one meat pie and share. As an artiste, such moments remain in my heart and I can write about it. But now what can I do? Any girl that I meet now would drive to my house. I live alone in my house. Things change and one has to be very careful so as to allow inspiration flow to you even when success comes. When the lady died of leukaemia, I felt very terrible. We were great friends even though we broke up before her death. We dated for about a year and half,” he said.
