Mikel Obi explains why he started a record label

'Apart from football, music is another thing I had passion for while I was growing up in Jos. I have so much emotional attachment to music. It lifts my soul and makes me happy. The arrival of MMM Records (Matured Money Minds) has gone a long way to show the deep love I have for music. I want to contribute my little quota to the growth of the music industry in Nigeria. I'm a good song writer and singer. If I wasn't a footballer, I would have done well as a singer or a disc jockey (DJ)' - Mikel Obi

I wanted to say something, but when I saw your name "MAMA IFU" I said let me forgive you. If you really know what football is, you wouldn't have said what u just said about mikel. Mama go and breast feed IFU and stop say what you don't Know just because you want to comment. Do u even know the club mikel plays for? Nonsense!!!

Must you descend as low as calling someone a fool because he comments? It is a free world, he is using his time(not yours) the way he deems fit. If he feels like commenting on all posts, and reply to all comments , it is his prerogative . So live and let live. Smh.

@ 21 Oct, 11:18pm, that you always notice and follow Bonario's comments makes you as guilty as he is .

lol @giving back. I wont necessarily call this corporate or personal social responsibility though,the guy is out to make money!

Great idea mikel. More of that

mimi said...

Mikel...Mikel.... Mikellllll... How many times did I call u?
Ask Tonto Dike or check ur BB updates or check all d blog sites or tweeter or fb to catch up in case u hv not heard... Stick to soccer n Chelsea n forget singing or song writing for now... Na my own candid advice b dat pp. no come fall ur hand here...

*just recuperating from Tonto's inhumane treatment*

Frankie De-Darkhorse said...

It's rather ridiculous that some people rant negatively about Mikel and his new record label. Firstly, Mikel has made and is still making his mark in football. Secondly, he can use his money in whatever way he so desires. Thirdly, his decision to invest in the Nigerian Music industry is a mature one and a commendable one. Now, here's 3 kposas TO BABA MIkel obi....Kposa! Kposa!! Kposa!!!

Frankie De-Darkhorse said...

For all these people ranting negatively about Mikel, firstly, you should stop being envious and pathetic. Secondly, Mikel has made and is still making his mark in football. Thirdly, he can decide to spend his money in whatever legitimate way he so desires. Fourthly, his decision to invest in the Nigerian Music industry is a mature and a commendable one. Here's 3 Kposas for Baba Mikel Obi...Kposa! Kposa!! Kposa!!!
