Rapper MI and Joey Akan Slam Eachother Over Dababy’s Visit

Published

on

Nigerian foremost rapper Jude ‘MI” Abaga was embroiled in a twitter fight with Afrobeats critic, Joey Akan.

This stemed from American rapper, Dababy’s visit to Nigeria to shoot a musical video with Davido.

It should be worthy of note that when American artist, Rick Ross came to Nigeria in April,2022. MI refused a meet up because it wasn’t a “one on one” meeting and was accused of being proud.

Joey Akan then made a tweet about Dababy’s presence in Nigeria:

He tweeted that “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. ”

This infuriated Jude “MI” who responded that:

“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

Let it be known that @JoeyAkan is an enemy of Nigerian HipHop!

A vile mind that continuously spits on our efforts and debases the Hiphop community!

You are persona non grata and no longer welcome in the culture.

You can always tell a deeply insecure person when the main thing they are known for is speaking ill of others

And @JoeyAkan please know.. normally I am not on twitter during the day because of work.. but today is laundry day for me so I have some time.. for every gbos there will be a gbas… idiot”

Joey Akan rebutted that “King of Nigerian hip hop has excommunicated me. You’re not that guy, Jude. You no longer have that influence you used for evil in the past.

The industry doesn’t rate you. Your past sins speak against you.

You’re still stuck in the 2011, that’s why you’re crying for Rick Ross.”

MI reiterated that “Not just king bro.. leader… I am the fucking leader!!!!!!!! Let’s see what impact my words have on you.. dead guy.. loser.. insecure piece of shit”

Joey Akan continued by bragging that “I’ve stood you up 3 times M.I, when you wanted to use me to attack an artist, you ruined their career. I refused, and you’ve hated me for it.

Leaking dirt on your artists to further damage their career.

You know why I never attended those meetings? Because you’re evil.

Jude, leave my DM and stop calling me. Come to the TL. @MI_Abaga.”

MI further stated that “We spoke on the phone.. and you called Nigerian rappers poor and depressed.

You are no longer welcome in our culture.. good bye 👋🏾 @JoeyAkan

Him de block my call lol my brother pick up talk to me like an adult… it’s easy to talk rarara on TL answer call Joey”

Joey Akan got fed up and said “Hey @MI_Abaga, I will no longer race you to the bottom.

Your closest friends, family and people you hold dear have called me to beg on your behalf.

And I will listen. I have respect. Have a great day, OG.”

This altercation could’ve also stemmed from buried hurt and we hope they both find middle ground.

The bill stipulates provision of assistance and protection to victims and witnesses who have vital information that could help ensure effective prosecution of cases, but who face intimidation due to their cooperation with the prosecution or law enforcement agencies.

A part of the bill further states: “Every person, including security agents shall render assistance to victims of accidents or crimes and ensure that such persons are taken to the nearest hospital for immediate
care and treatment.

“A public or private hospital shall provide immediate and adequate treatment to an accident victim or any person with gunshot and severe injuries or wounds.”

It stipulates a fine for any medical facility that fails to comply with the related section of the bill.

“A private hospital that receives accident victims with severe injuries or wounds for treatment under this section must inform the agency within Forty-Eight (48) hours of his admission, and forward a request for reimbursement of medical expenses where family members or relations cannot be identified or where the victim is indigent, and subject to the approval of the request by the agency, it shall forward records of the treatment to the agency,” the bill states.

With the bill scaling a third reading during plenary, the Speaker directed the Clerk of the House, Barr. Olalekan Onafeko, to send a clean copy to the Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for his assent.

Obasa to Remi Tinubu At 62: Your Roles In Nigeria’s Democracy Are Indelible

Published

on

ObasaThe Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, has congratulated Senator Oluremi Tinubu on her 62nd birthday.

Dr. Obasa, in a statement by Eromosele Ebhomele, his Chief Press Secretary, described the former First Lady of Lagos as one whose love for Nigeria and roles in national unity and development are worthy of emulation by every well-meaning citizen.

The Speaker added that Senator Tinubu has continued to etch her name in the history of Nigeria as a politician of repute, a champion of the downtrodden and an advocate for the youth, the aged and good governance.

He noted Senator Tinubu’s passion for a greater Nigeria both as a crusader for a more vibrant democracy and as a serving member of the National Assembly.

“As the loving wife of our dear leader and presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, you have been a major pillar of support and progress.

“That Nigeria practises democracy today is partly as a result of the roles you played while the military held on the the government of the country. History is replete with how you worked tirelessly against the annulment of the June 12, 1993 presidential election result won by Chief MKO Abiola and how you took care of many exiled members of the National Democratic Coalition and citizens of Nigeria who were at the time under the radar.

“As First Lady of Lagos State, your love for the education of the underprivileged in the society and the need to raise standards gave birth to your pet project, The Spelling Bee Competion, which, delightedly, has produced great minds and future leaders.

“Lagos is blessed with you and we are happy that you have remained a major support for the growth and development of our State. You have also remained a mentor to many Nigerians whose lives you have touched with your New Era Foundation and various scholarship programmes.

“On behalf of my family and members of the legislative arm of Lagos government, I congratulate you on your birthday and pray that God continue to bless you with good health, strength and divine capacity ahead of the bigger task before us all, amen,” Obasa prayed.

Queen Elizabeth: Lagos Assembly Wants More For Nigerian Traditional Rulers

Published

on

The Lagos State House of Assembly has called on the government to improve the honour given first-class and prominent traditional rulers before and after their death.

This motion followed a Matter of Urgent Public Importance raised by the lawmaker representing Mushin Constituency 2, Hon. Olawale Abdulsobur Olayiwola, during on plenary on Monday.

Referring to the celebration that accompanied the burial ceremony of Queen Elizabeth II of England, Hon. Olayiwola observed that traditional rulers in Nigeria are never given adequate honour and recognition before and after their death.

In his comment, the Speaker of the House, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Ajayi Obasa emphasised that while it might not be easy to honour all the traditional rulers in the state, first-class royal fathers should be celebrated.

The Speaker said that he shared the idea of celebrating those who make up the traditional institution adding: “We should learn how to elevate our own. If foreigners are coming to celebrate us through their documentaries, we should think deeply about celebrating ourselves too.

“The Ministry of Local Government and Community Affairs should fashion out how best our Obas should be celebrated.

“Occupiers of recognised thrones that have been in existence for many years should be celebrated,” he said.

Earlier in his argument, Olayiwola had said: “Queen Elizabeth II left after over 70 years on the throne and the burial was attended by a delegation from Nigeria led by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

“But here in Nigeria, we don’t celebrate our traditional rulers in death. An example was when the former Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, joined his ancestors recently. He was not celebrated as he should,” he lamented.

Olayiwola, Chairman of the House Committee on Local Government and Community Affairs, called on the Lagos State Ministry of Local Government and Community Affairs to celebrate the traditional rulers in the state while they are alive and during their demise.

This was accepted by all the lawmakers at plenary.
