Being in the limelight is one of the perks that come with enjoying a celebrity status. While many entertainers are comfortable with being the subject of attention, others are left with the choice of coping through it all.
Nigerian rap act, MI Abaga, recently made a new revelation about himself in an interview with Peoples TV’s entertainment programme e360. The celebrated rap star disclosed that he never wanted to be the most popular person in the world but only wanted to be able to sufficiently provide for his family.
He continued by adding that as an artist, once you start to grow older, you must take the initiative to prioritize the things that are most important in life.
Abaga said that although the pressure to live a luxurious life has always been on him, he had never been depressed. He stressed that it was okay if a person could not afford the extravagant things in life as happiness should come first before every other secondary things.
