If you’re a light skin girl, MI Abaga is not checking for you!

In a recent interview with Potpourri the rapper reveals his fear of “light-skinned girls”, saying that he has a mortal fear of yellow paw paws because he believes most of them were not born that way. He went further to say that before he can marry a light skin chick she would need to show him her baby pictures.

Talking about the physical side of what I want in a woman, I want my children to be tall, so, she must be tall because I am not tall. Then I don’t care about complexion. If she is fair, that would be a problem because I would have to see  her childhood picture to confirm if she’s natural or artificial. Most ladies that claim to be fair or appear to be fair these days get unnatural means to achieve it. So, getting her childhood picture would tell me all I need to know concerning her true complexion

LOL!

On not needing music to survive,

People have been saying whatever they like but I have been blessed that I don’t need to make music to survive. But now is the right time for me to come out because the music is there and the story is there. I stayed away waiting for the right time. Whenever you drive through Lagos or anywhere in the country and you see my face, you would know what I have been doing to survive.

Since then both sides have been in talks, but last night Brymo’s team released a statement which basically said accusing Chocolate City of Bad Faith.
