An interview with a Nigerian Musician who lost 25m naira to MMM


We’ve abridged this interview to bring out the salient part of it…

Your latest album, MMM, has a rather interesting title. What is the story behind it?

MC GALAXY: MMM simply stands for Money Making Machine. I am simply trying to pass a message that everyone has the potential to make money and become wealthy. Every individual is gifted and can make money from it. Money Making Machine is an afro-centric body of work with guest appearances including Swizz Beatz, Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie, Congolese singer Neza and Serge Beynaud from Côte D’ivoire.

 Is it also connected to the fact that you lost N25 million to the MMM Ponzi scheme last year?

MC GALAXY: Not really. It was one of the reasons, but not the major reason. I can’t even remember it. That’s in the past. I have forgotten all about it. My manager convinced me to invest about N25 million in MMM but that is all in the past. True, I lost money to MMM, but it has taught me now that I am my own money making machine. A lot of people have learnt a lot of lessons from that experience.
