Popular Nigerian rapper, MI Abaga has taken to social media to ask Nigerians to ignore the whatever is being said about the Igbo people in the country.
The music star via his Twitter page on June 2, 2021 made this known while reacting to the tweets which was posted by president Muhammadu Buhari.
“I can’t imagine being an Igbo citizen and seeing those tweets yesterday. I can’t imagine the way it would have made them feel. So I thought it would be beautiful today to tell our Igbo brothers and sisters that we love them,”
“We cannot fix the years of pain, we cannot fix that feeling of not being wanted or being loved. That is not going to be the narration of our generation.”
“We love you, you are part of us. This is for my manager Abuchi, Don Jazzy, D Prince, Chidinma, Blackbonez, Phyno, Flavour, Kelechi Amadi, so many people that have given so much to this country, we love you and we stand with you today. We are Igbo too. Bless.”
The narrative that "Nigeria hates Igbo people" is an outdated context that will leave with the old and bitter generation
