That moment when you lose someone who was dear to you to the icy hands of death is the only moment that one will not contend to popular Julius Caesar quote that ‘Death is a necessary end.’

Nigerian Hip Hop Artiste, M.I born Jude Abaga recalls how he lose his former girlfriend to death after the pair backed out from their relationship which lasted for a year and half.

M.I told the Punch that her late former girlfriend was the one who inspired her to write his ‘One Naira’ song.

According to him, he was troubled to hear the death of someone who he shared his love life with—despite the fact that they broke away along the line.

The singer revealed that any moment shared with that girl was memorable one.

Can we put on record that he has found a new lady?

The answer to the above question will be no; because, M.I explained that “he is so busy that he hardly has the time to sit or talk about any relationship for now because it will definitely affect the flow of songs when it comes.”

“When I was writing the song, ‘One Naira,’ there was a girl I was dating at the time. She is dead now. At that time, I remember that we used to ride on motorcycle to meet each other. It was normal then. She could not come to my house neither could I go to hers, so we would meet at an eatery.

When we get to the eatery, we couldn’t just sit without buying anything so we could buy one meat pie and share. As an artiste, such moments remain in my heart and I can write about it. But now what can I do? Any girl that I meet now would drive to my house. I live alone in my house.

Things change and one has to be very careful so as to allow inspiration flow to you even when success comes. When the lady died of leukaemia, I felt very terrible. We were great friends even though we broke up before her death. We dated for about a year and half,” he said.
