I haven’t gone to church in eight years –Jesse Jagz reveals

Even though popular rap artiste, Jesse Jagz,
grew up in a church which his father headed, the
rapper has said that he has not been in a church
in over eight years.

He argued that what really mattered was a
person’s relationship with God and not the period
of time spent in a religious institution.

He said, “I think every human is spiritual. Prayer
is communication with God and there is no
definite way of communicating with God. My dad
was a pastor so we grew up in church. However,
I have not gone to church in eight years. I
believe education does not only exist within the
four walls of a school the same way God does
not only exist in a religious institution. He exists
on his own. Growing up in church has made me
realise the most important thing is to have a
relationship with God. Human beings take religion
too seriously.”

The rapper who left his record label for over two
years told Saturday Beats why he left. He also
expressed his feeling about his brother, MI, being
his new boss.

“Coming back to Chocolate City has been
wonderful and I am glad about the expansion of
the record label. There are more employees and
better creative control for the artistes. I left
because after I finished recording my album, ‘Thy
Nation Come,’ I played it for the record label but
for business reasons, they did not want to
release it. Actually, if you have listened to the
album you would know that it is somehow
controversial and you would understand why the
label did not want to release it. So I went ahead
to release it myself.

I am happy for MI and Ice Prince as they have
become the CEO and MD of Chocolate City
respectively. I would also want people to
understand that MI has always been our
president, I have always been the think tank of
the trio and Ice prince has always been on the
administrative end right from when we were in
Jos. I would say those are just titles but
everybody has been playing that role. I am a
shareholder in Chocolate City and it was so even
when I left two years ago,” he said.
