MI took to twitter to express his feelings on his 2011 headies album of the year nomination. He had preferred winning album of the year award over best collabo. While MI is more respectful of the winner, 2face, he thinks MI2 deserves the award.
He shared his thoughts upon losing in that category
"But I really wanted to win album of the year.. And I'm not saying tuface isn't worthy.. He definately is and every nominee is as well..but MI2 I think was a legendary project..(Even though I say so myself) because I don't think anyone expected rap music to spread far as it has Six songs that more or less were 'hit songs' action film, beef, nobody,number one,undisputed,my belle And then craze, wild wild west, epic and represent where also well accepted The collabs were on point.. Shout out to waje, praise, loose, julius ceaser, brymo, ruby pastor B..studio magic"
Interestingly, MI also claimed Jahbless' Jor oh or Iceprince's Oleku deserved the best collabo award which was won by him (his 'number one' track with flavor).
He tweeted this
"I actually agree... I think Joor was much better collab.. Oleku too..."
Replying a fan who thinks MI doesn't deserve the best collabo award.
Was MI robbed at the Headies? Be the judge.
