  • By Olamide Onipede


Chocolate city rapper, Jesse Jagz has dropped a bombshell by claiming he does not see himself as the best rapper while he was having a discussion of recent with WG, at the Chocolate City office, in Lagos.

The Choc Boiz Nation member who few years back left the label to start his own brand “Jagz Nation” and most recently found his way back fielded a number of questions in the interview. While responding to one about his real competitors in the music industry, Jesse Jagz replied by saying, “I don’t think there is anyone to compete with, because I don’t see myself as a very good rapper. I would probably like to stay at a place with a lot of rappers and listen to them rap so as to learn from their craft.”

Jesse also said if he has the chance to do an international collaboration he will like to do it with Angelique Kidjo.
The “Jargo” crooner further said that, “I have gone through the profile of American artistes and I do not think any of them have something to offer to me.”
On why he initially left Chocolate City, Jesse Jagz had this to say: “I left because I recorded one of my tracks at that time and I played it for the record label. But the management of the label I guessed did not want to promote the songs for business reasons. I just decided to forge ahead and put the song out there by myself. That was why I walked out of the label.” and surely he spoke about how he feels to be back to the label by saying, “I feel happy returning to Chocolate City. MI has always been our president right from time and we have always worked like one big family. I am a shareholder in Chocolate City even while I was not around. So to me, the label is like a family thing. I am always going to be Jesse Jagz of Chocolate City regardless of where I will be tomorrow,”.

Jesse Jagz who is Africa’s leading rap act M.I Abaga’s junior brother and winner of the HEADIES 2014 rap album of the year will be dropping six albums in the next three years.
