Something I Learnt From @MI_Abaga Music

I am a big fan of Jude "M.I" Abaga. I have been ever since the beginning of time i listened to the song 'SAFE'. And the truth is, he got me interested in Nigerian Hip Hop.
***i do not intend to make his head to start bigging but that's true***

One thing i liked about his songs were the kind of flavor each song seemed to have. The wordplays, The Multis, The punchlines, The complexities. They all reflected his vast knowledge - and i loved that. Infact, i learned a lot just by listening to his songs.

I however made a discovery...which got me a bit perplexed at that time. This guy seemed to use some very very...extremely amazing punchlines in songs that were not his (songs he was featured on). The lyrics were extremely fabulous and i didn't quite understand why he would use such Creativity in someone else's song. "WHY NOT JUST SAVE THEM FOR UR OWN SONG, Mr. M.I", i always wondered.

I would then be more perplexed when he puts up something even more hip in his own song. It was like his Creativity Never STopped. Like be had a tank of Creativity from which he could just withdraw whenever he wanted.


Thinking about what/ how i thought at that time, i cannot help but laugh at myself, because over the years, i have realized one thing:
CREATIVITY is in all of us. CREATIVITY is EXPANDABLE...not EXPeNDABLE. It cannot be exhausted - well not until we die.

The jerk then is: To be as creative as you possibly can, to do all the best you much as you can for the sake of whatever cause or course of action. Because truly, with time you get to understand that what you thought was YOUR BEST is not really your best.

Under any circumstance, always do your best, no more and no less. But keep in mind that your best is never going to be the same from one moment to the next.
