During one of the many exciting sessions at the just concluded Nigerian Entertainment Conference, Chocolate City rapper, MI took some time off to dole out advise to rapper, Olamide.
“What advise do you have for someone like Olamide, who isn’t signed to any label but has continued to remain relevant in the music scene?”, Osagie Alonge, moderator of the session had asked MI and in response, he said;
“If I met Olamide today, I would tell him not to consider himself as successful yet. Success takes a long time. Recently, I discovered First Bank has been in existence for over 120 years, that is success. Audu Maikori is about to step down as CEO of a label after 10 years and the label will still continue, that is success.”
“I would also advise him…to hire people who have more knowledge than him and build a structure around them”, he added
The session, Not Dying Soon, had the rapper deliver an emotional address about why his Chocolate City label will not go extinct. It was followed by a panel session that had him, Seyi Shay and MD of Megaletrics, Deji Awokoya answer questions from Alonge.
