M.I Abaga

BIOGRAPHY

Artiste Contents

MI was born in the city of Jos, music immediately surrounded M.I’s life. M.I was able to see first hand musicians such as Panam Percy Paul, the Winners Band and the Footsteps band. M.I’s father at the time was the pastor allowing M.I to grow up around constant singing. At an early age M.I’s mother taught him the sulfa notation and how it applied to a simple chorus. It was after this that M.I began to learn how to play the keyboards; on a small 7 key toy keyboard.

By the age of 10, M.I could play the drums and keyboards to an extent. M.I also compared notes with Jeremiah Gyang who was a very close childhood friend. M.I discovered rap music when he began secondary schoo. It was here that M.I fell in love with this art form.

Around 1998 M.I got his hands on DMX’s debut album and Lauryn Hill’s Mis-education album and began to write his own music and poems. While in college M.I put aside hip hop music for an acappella group but continued his writing in hopes of one day picking up where he left off.

Towards M.I’s senior year in college he started writing long poems with a very rhythmic tones. M.I was able to record a few of his songs which were placed on a college album.
