Okay, its official, the new website of Jude ‘MI’ Abaga crashed just 5 minutes after it was launched!, a record 35 thousand users were logged on immediately it debuted!
So, he is called the short black boy from Jos, but the man would not just stop doing big things! On Wednesday 11th of April, 2012, Loopey Music hosted a milestone tripartite launch which included the unveiling of ‘Mr Incredible’s’ aforementioned website @ www.miabaga.com, the release of the much anticipated mix tape, ‘Illegal Music’, also from MI and the showcase of fresh-off-the-block artistes under the Loopey conglomerate: Ruby, Threadstone and Loose Kaynon.
Therefore, the stage was set at Oriental Hotels, Lekki; it was a constellation of the finest, the biggest and the crème-de-la-crème of the Nigerian music industry. Everybody (literally) came out to support Loopey Music and Ultimately MI Abaga.Tu Face Idibia, Olu Maintain, Mode Nine, Shank, Steel, Young Six, Solid Star, Ace,(the list is endless!) were some of the artists that either graced the red carpet or were seen miming to songs from the Choc Bois when they stepped on stage.
Talking about the stage, the trio of MI, Jesse Jags and Ice PrinceZamani apparently wanted to bring down the roof with what was supposed to be a forerunner to performances of the Loopey artistes!(Now, that’s how to properly introduce next rated artistes).
Subsequently, Ruby, a Soul singer that portends a breath of fresh in the Nigerian Music scene stepped on stage and jeepers! that lady is a nightingale! First was a beautiful rendition of Bob Marley’s redemption song, which was followed by a sonorous delivery of a single off her forthcoming album.
Then was the performance of the first official Nigerian rock band, ‘Threadstone’. Never thought we could do rock so superbly in Nigeria until I saw those guys on stage! Everybody should seriously watch out for ‘Threadstone’.
Now, for those that do not know, MI had to ‘beg’ Loose Kaynon to join the Loopey movement. The dude is that good! With years of experience in Nigeria’s rap scene as leverage, Loose Kaynon is set to become the next big thing to happen to rap music in Nigeria.(Not trying to overtly toot his horn!). He is the perfect icing on the cake for Loopey Music and he didn’t disappoint on the night as torrents of ‘ill’ punchlines were dispersed during his rap duet with MI.
Basically, that had to be the biggest Industry Night in a very long time. Looking forward to the albums of Ruby, Loose kaynon and Threadstone.(Between, M1’S Illegal Music is now available for FREE on his website).So, get yourself in the Loop because Loopey Music is about to take over!
