Chocolate City boss, MI Abaga, has jumped to the defence of singer, Simi, after she faced some backlash for criticising 'Yahoo boys' on her Instagram live video on Friday.

On Friday, Simi put a 'ban' on her music to fraudsters when she told them not to buy her songs or even promote her music.

Those comments led to some supposed angry fraudsters destroying her CDs in their possession but that didn't make her change her mind as she put up another video warning them that she wasn't the enemy.

Following Simi's update, rapper, MI, has commended her for being bold and speaking her mind.

"In the spirit of uplifting our Queens.. @symplysimi I applaud your courage and your fortitude for speaking out on what you believe!!!" M.I wrote on his Instagram page.

"The truth is that the scourge of internet fraud is hurting us more than it is helping us.. and please don't misunderstand.. this country is so hard that I judge no man because I am imperfect.

"But we must not attack those that remind us of what we should be.. that energy is for us to vote.. us to speak out against our elected officials.. and for us to do a better job at lifting all young Nigerians so that they never have to turn away from righteousness to provide food to eat.

"We may be forced to eat with dirty hands.. but it doesn't mean we should piss in clean water."

MI's commendation is coming days after he encouraged Tiwa Savage following recent attacks on the Mavin queen by other female artists.
