Things got messy when MI replied him that:
"You have a small mind, so not sure you understand what false equivalency is what's the point of this tweet? To insult rappers for wanting respect? Insecure little Joey insulting people to feel better grow up. Let it be known that Joey Akan is an enemy of Nigerian Hip Hop.
You are persona non grata and no longer welcome in the culture."
The duo proceeded by passing shots at each other as they washed their dirty linen on the streets of Twitter.
Joey told MI that he no longer has influence:
"King of Nigerian hip hop has excommunicated me. You're not that guy, Jude. You no longer have that influence you used for evil in the past. The industry doesn't rate you. Your past sins speak against you. You're still stuck in the 2011, that's why you're crying for Rick Ross."
