Nigerian hip hop recording artist and record producer, Jude Abaga, better known as M.I Abaga, recently shared a very brief story of how he became a household name in the Nigerian music industry. He equally used the opportunity to introduce a new female artiste.
The rapper who just released an E.P, “Judah The E.P” took to his social media pages to share his stardom story and introduce his artiste whose name is “Kauna”. He told his fans that she’s got a lot of amazing things to offer.
Here is what he wrote:
“When I was 11 or 12 I met a superstar J town artist, Bola Adebisi. He was everything I wanted to be, a few years later at the lowest part of my life I met him again in Jos. He gave my brother and I the studio he had in his house and this is how we began making the music that eventually led me here.
“Bola literally changed my life! 15 years later I introduce his daughter Kauna Adebisi @Kauna_a (IG) to the world. With her amazing voice she comes from a lineage of music royalty!! Please follow her online and support her as she blossoms.”
It is worthy to note that since MI hit the limelight in 2003, he has been achieving a lot of milestones. He has been the CEO of Chocolate City since June 2015.
He won Best Hip Hop and Best New Act at the 2009 MTV Africa Music Awards, and was nominated in the Best International Act category at the BET Awards 2010. He rose to prominence in 2006 when his song “Crowd Mentality” became popular in his hometown of Jos.

Four years after that, he released The Chairman as his third studio album. M.I Abaga released the playlist Rendezvous in February 2018.
