Following from reactions over the partnership deal between Chocolate City and Warner Music Group (WMG); Former ‘choc city‘ label president MI Abaga in his chat with Showtime has defended the move and stated that it was a timely event and well deserving of the 15 years old record label (Chocolate City).
In his words, “The deal was actually made possible by Audu Maikori while he was in the states. I think we can all agree it was about time. Chocolate City is 15-years old this year. For an African label to last this long is important for the industry; for potential investors in the industry to see music and artiste as viable. To have an African label scale up internationally it was a no brainer”
