At the SoundCityMVP Awards, where M.I Abaga performed and gave Nigerian Rappers a little pep talk, he urged Upcoming Nigerian Rappers to “pick up their pens and start writing” as Nigerian Hip-Hop is set to rise again.
Indigenous rapper, CDQ, who obviously doesn’t share the same sentiment as M.I, took to his Instagram page to express himself on an already deleted post:
He posted in Yoruba as quoted:
“Egbon e lo joko jur. Film ni gbogbo eleyi ten act yi. Nothing like Naija Hiphop. Hiphop is Hiphop…. a wan pawo eyin pariwo”.

Which translates to:
“Bros, go and sit down. You’re just acting for the camera. There’s nothing like Naija hiphop.. Hiphop is Hiphop. We are making money, you’re making noise..”
Well, since making that statement, M.I fans have taken to social media to drag CDQ for countering M.I’s pep talk and disrespecting the Nigerian Hip-Hop legend, while M.I Abaga is yet to reply CDQ or comment on the matter.
