Answering the question M.I said:

“I’ll be honest, before this project I asked myself ‘is there anything more that I can give? Why am I doing this, is it ego?’ , and the answer I came up with is that it would be great if the whole world knew that in Africa there was a legendary rapper that existed, someone who put the whole continent on his back, someone who’s been doing it. I think that’s the rest of the journey for me, letting everybody know.”

“The Guy” by M.I. Abaga tackles subjects that may not be significant to others but are significant to him.

He further enlists the help of generations of talent to accomplish his goal of showcasing the frail and human side of the superstar M.I. Abaga.

Fans and journalists alike have praised the album thus far, calling it a smart collection of work.
