M.I Speaks On Rick Ross Hold Me Back Video – “God Forbid We Don’t “

43

Here is what M.I Think about The Rick Ross Hold Me Back Video which was shot In Nigeria.

Does it make you angry? Does it rile you to see your country portrayed as poor and suffering and full of struggle?

It burns you, does it not? To have some foreigner- who knows nothing of your history and pain, of the stories that flow within your blood- to have this foreigner come in and tell your story?

Is it not the height of disrespect and insensitivity? Does it not chafe against the thick skin you have grown to cover your other wounds?

Does it not make you angry?

We should wax sanctimonious about national pride being slighted.

We should vent our displeasure online

We should occupy something.

Because God forbid the truth ever be told about what things really are.

God forbid a stranger remind us about those things we choose to ignore everyday.

God forbid we ever face the truth about ourselves.

God forbid we do not go on the internet and rail about how our country is being cast in bad light. God forbid we do not talk about how there is a small minority which lives better than portrayed. God forbid we do not ignore truth one more time.

God forbid we don’t.

  10. M.I sha,…you should know some people don’t get irony. He was supporting the video but his message got lost in translations somehow…..Nigeria has a lot of poor people. Lets fix the problem, #nuffsaid

  11. It burns to see that despite this little light shed on our ignorance, some of you still put ur hands on ur keypads without picking ur brain first.. M.I is so right about that Video.. If a Non-Nigerian Watches that Video, he/she would think of our Great Country as “Somalia”,”Mozambique” or one of those Undeveloped Countries.. And yet instead of admitting the truth y’all think M.I said those things for attention.. You Know Not what Befalls this Great Country at the expense of ur Ignorance..

  12. first of all wat i would say is rick ross used a ghetto lyf in his first video version of hold me back, n since he dnt want 2 change such scene he dcided 2 do same in 9ja. But y is it daht sum of us tink other wise? @MI i agree wit u buh i jst tink he’s tryin 2 do d same tin wit d niaja version.

  13. Waz dat d reazon y d fat fool kame 2 Nigeria? 2 tell uz our story n d rest of d world? Next tin u’ll c nw iz dat he’z raizin fundz 2 help theze kidz which he’ll neva do. God save him we dnt katch him if he stepz our soil again

  14. Watsup MI nw. U just wan feel urself say u sabi talk ba. Ok na we don hear u but ur comment no dey needed. U think say u beta pass any #mmg guy. Any tin wey rozay do na correct since no b ur papa house him come shoot d video #MMG

  18. @kadaja or smtin I wnt insult u but I’ll tell u what u are…how would u say rickross came to make nigeria famous…dats a very stupid statement..Nigeria is already famous do u know what Nigeria contributes to d world economy?…hilary clinton just visited Nigeria and ur saying one rickross came to make Nigeris famous…You should me dissaponted…

  21. MI is a big northern hemlock to the industry for bringing this up,a nitwit,what did u knw,u this motherfucking son of a northern beast…r u the only rapper or citizen in the country,fuck u,fuck ur dick headed,u r a pain in the ass,u can choose one here,go and hang urself,go down the street and hug a working transformer like u said previously or u go down the cave and fuck a lion,u fucking black devilish lip…IM can FF me on twitter @lil_vincy and lemme tell him what he is.

  22. MI is just a northern dwarf,he out of his senses…jealousy,u suppose go tell MR PRESIDENT nau,ur lips like pomo wey all those oyo,osun,ilorin people forget for fire…u better no humiliate ur self like this again or we go send u back there,u better go sleep and snore with ur fucking mic…b like pencil wey all those nursery sch kids used remain,if u try this again u go smell ur fucking black ass…WTF

  23. Its very surprising and saddening 4 9jirians 2 b blaming and cursing our own boy bcos of 1 foriegner..Its a very big shame 4 those who insulted M.I concerning dis issue.If M.I is wrong(2 me not),we should just overlook it,bcos such action’ll prevent future embarasment 4rm d so called foreigners.

  24. Some comment here r quite irritatin…MI,i can reali feel wat u r passin across.can wizkid go 2 american n sing dsame song?

  25. m.i! it make me angry to see my country portrayed as poor and suffering and full of struggle, i know ow u feel abt diz video, bt am also happy dat diz video was taken in 9ja so dat d world out der wil c, wot we r passing tru in hands of our leaders, in few days now we all celebrate 1st october, nw ask ur self wat av we achive? d contry is stil as white men left it.

  26. Since 9jerian refuse 2 stand n say d 2rut,a foreigner will do dat 4 us,I blive m.I is just jealous tryin 2 put on d shield of nelson mandela 4 9ja,and seekin 4 attention or GEJ should compensate him 4 dat mtcheww aboki wey de wear pamperz na m.I b

  27. i think you guys are misunderstanding MI….i support what he is saying…we should not allow a Foreigner to come and insult our country coz i see​ no reason why he should shoot that video in that manner….the video didn’t even portray ‎​d song….

  28. I support M.I,he is right,how can we let a foreigner to come to our land and tell us our story..its quite preposterous..no matter how bad or poverty stricken niaja is,rozay doesn’t have any right whatsoever to shoot that song especially in that Area.rosay just used nigeria to amass wealth,he used us to make money,and you guys are so happy about it..I am disappointed!!niaja isn’t that gud,yes..buh u shld nt wash ur dirty linen outside,the worst is giving it out to a foreigner to wash for you…wake up from your slumber naija…@kadaje or wateva…u r a pathetic imbecile,slow in thinkn.u r a disgrace to your grandmother’s memory!!

  29. Listen guys, M.I is so right about d video, if he did not wanna mock us, y didn’t he used places like sharaton hotel abuja, d hotel he lodged wen he came to nigeria, place like ph, obudu catel ranch, I laugh wen I just see some stupid nigerians been deceived by this fat boy,d problem in nigeria is… We don’t always want to know d truth, someone who says christians or those who believe in heaven are fools,let’s be realistic for once. So for those who think M.I is jealous ,I sorry for u. It is written, my people perish because they lack knowledge. BE WISE!

  30. In all honesty, ℓ jst personally felt MI wsnt evn dissn Ricky, instead he was opening our eyes (for doz dt were closed) to d facts of our impoverished economy. Its bad enough dat we live such hardships day in day out,its worse off for a total stranger 2 rub it in our mouth..MI spoke word, as a true J-twn breed he is.”We should occupy something”, and ℓ agree wt him, its high time our leaders changed, pls y’all shld take a quick peek at dis link http://m.naij.com/news/features/9975.html, and u wld undrstnd a snippet of wot Jude is tryn 2 tell us. God forbid we do not ignore dis, God forbid we don’t. God bless Nigeria.

  33. I read all our comments, The Wise, The foolish, The Stupid, The Arrogant, The Hopeless, etc…….
    I love M.I Yesterday, today, and forever, I read someone’s comment as saying “Rick Ross Did a Favor to Nigeria” as to that I say Fuck U, Fuck Rosay, Fuck his Favor. Did He Come to Nigeria for free? The Same poor Country as he thinks Paid Him in Full, That Is to say Nigeria Helped To put food On His Motherf**king table,
    Rosay Has Never and Doesn’t Like Nigerians. In Psquare’s Onyiye rmx I heard him speak indirectly to Psquare saying “We talking abt Making Money And Your talking Nonsense” What has That line got to do with a Love song? Fuck Rosay yesterday, today, and for ever. God Forbid we Kill eachother Over A Stupid F**king Grandson Of a sugarcane Slave

  34. I wish say I fit look name Ãℓℓ ¶ħз idiots wey insult M.I,him don solve Ãℓℓ ¶ħз problems wey dey hin country? B4 facing our own country.It’s total disrespect and u idiots can’t even see it…if u’ve lost ur pride,there r some of us who still love and hold dis country in high esteem.@ kajada abeg sell ur phone pay skul fees enter skul.daft prick!
