M.I explains How He Avoids Sex With female fans, Hails Nigerian Girls

Multi award-winning rapper and Chocolate City artiste, M.I has shared his strategy of avoiding the sexual advances of female fans who might be tempted to embrace extreme measures especially when he's in a very vulnerable situation.

In a recent interview with a soft sell magazine, M.I said:

"Let me first say this, Nigerian girls are more decent. I tell you why? Fans in other countries go out of their ways for celebrities to sleep with them. But our girls are very decent. However, what I try to do in most cases is to stay in my hotel room anytime I go to event. That means, if you don’t want to, nobody would force you. I show my female fans a lot of respect. The love I have for them is not sexual. It is an appreciative love. The contact can now become sexual the more you communicate. The best thing is when they show you love, show them love; when they bless you, you bless them; when they greet you, you greet them; and you part ways. I think that’s the best way,” he affirmed.

It would interest you to know that  during the Konga ‘Yakata’ sales, Nigerians received as much as 70% discount on items purchased. The Yakata sales, which started on Thursday a day prior to the global Black Friday and ended midnight on Black Friday, gave shoppers two days of fantastic offers.

The CEO and founder of, Sim Shagaya expressed his deep gratitude to all customers that took part in the Yakata Sales saying, “Because of our customers, Konga and many small and medium size retailers that sell on our platform witnessed sales volumes that were simply staggering. We, as a people, have made a great leap forward towards the development of e-commerce in Nigeria and larger Africa”.

Mr. Shagaya disclosed that at its peak, Konga was processing N50 million worth of orders every hour and that Konga sold 500% more items in the two days of Yakata than it did in all of 2012.

His words: “We received thousands of orders within the first few hours of launching Yakata. The orders poured in from virtually every state in Nigeria and interestingly from several other countries as well. Following the Yakata sale, almost 100,000 items are now being shipped all over Nigeria.

Further remarking on the growth of E-commerce in Nigeria, Shagaya said, “Over 40% of the people who shopped had never bought online before. With a significant part of Konga’s orders generated from mobile devices it shows that Ecommerce is really growing fast in Nigeria and it is a clear pointer that mobile is the way Nigerians will shop online in the future.

Some of the hottest deals recorded during the period were Haier Thermocool 3KVA remote control generator which sold at a remarkable N53, 750 at a discount of almost 60 percent; and the Lenovo A3300 Tablet which sold at N18, 000 instead of N30, 000.

Quote of the Week: Rita Dominic

“To be honest, I did not want to play Clara Ikemba (the discourteous secretary) in the movie, ‘The Meeting.’ People were abusing us saying we (actresses and film makers) should get serious and go and work in a bank. To be honest, we did not have money and we were not making money either. We didn't even have phones or GSM. I remember how I would attend movie auditions and the organisers of the audition would tell you to come back two days after to find out of you made the list and you would spend your last card (money) to the venue, get there, check the list and not find my name on the list. When I said last card, I mean it was really the last money you had and there was no money to go back home. It never stopped me though because somehow, I would get home and the next day, I'm already looking for another audition. The passion was just there. Naturally, I'm a shy person and I think I just love hiding behind characters. I love the fact that I get to hide my real personality behind those characters.”
