Biography

The self-styled Mr Incredible, was born Jude Abaga on the 4th of October in the northern city of Jos, Plateau state. He grew up listening to the sounds of influential acts like Lauryn Hill, Bob Marley and DMX. He attended Calvin College in the United States but moved back to Nigeria in 2003 to pursue a career in music.

MI’s entrance into the industry was a breath of fresh air as his lyrical dexterity and punchy delivery, the result of endless practice sessions soon began to get him all the right notices. Singles like Crowd mentality and Pyeri boy amassed cult status but his debut album, Talk about it erased all doubts of his proficiency as a musician. It quickly became one of the fastest selling debuts in recent history and is on the way to classic status.

MI is signed to Chocolate City as an artiste. His Loopy records merged with Chocolate City in 2015 to become Choc Boi Nation with Abaga stepping in as group chief executive following founding boss Audu Maikori’s retirement.

MI has released three bestselling albums and 2 critically acclaimed mixtapes.
