OUR AMBASSADOR

JUDE ABAGA

Jude Abaga, known by his stage name M.I Abaga, was born in Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria. He is widely heralded as Africa’s most commercially successful rapper. 

M.I. is famous for his commitment to innovation in producing and marketing his music, as well as showcasing young talents.

He first tasted mainstream success in 2008 with his debut, ‘Talk About It’. The album was a watershed moment for Nigeria’s hip-hop community, laying out the much-needed blueprint for commercial success selling rap in Africa. His ‘MI2’ album remains Nigeria’s best-selling hip-hop album.

His music was largely based on his experience as a kid from war-torn Jos and his immersive experience while earning a business degree from Calvin College, Michigan. 

Beyond his music, M.I. is a brand favourite, holding Ambassadorship positions with brands like Globacom Limited, Martell, and Henessy.
