Published

on

The ‘Nigeria Jagajaga’ crooner, Eedris Abdulkareem has come again. The hip-hop artist’s new song now trending on social media, chronicles almost everything wrong with Nigeria.

Even if you are a foreigner, mere listening to this new song gives you an idea of the dire situation of Nigeria and her people.

The just released satirical song titled ‘Emilokan’, is presented as an interview and opens with disturbing photos showing hunger, suffering and hardship. And then the lyrics, “Emi lokan don turn ebi lokan…”

He brings up the issue of insecurity. “…imagine say na your grandchildren they kidnapped by soldiers for don scatter everywhere for Nigeria, common man no get money for ransom for his wife and children, after everything na kill dem go kill dem. See as naira dey fall against dollars, Emi lokan oti di ebi lokan and you say make we sacrifice for Nigeria…”

For clarity, Emi lokan is President Bola Tinubu’s electoral campaign slogan meaning it’s my turn. Eedris in the song says it has turned to ebi lokan (its hunger’s turn) because of the shameful multidimensional poverty ravaging the people.

Next, he condemns extravagant spending by the government. He mentions how amidst excruciating hunger, the government spends billions as travel allowance, Aso Rock maintenance, food and refreshments, for dogs and animals adding, ‘meanwhile hunger dey kill Nigerians’.

At this point, Eedris asks a pertinent question, ‘Wetin Nigerians do to warrant this treatment?” The chorus follows; ‘Tinubu government blame Buhari, Buhari government blame Jonathan…hunger dey, people are dying. Dis one don pass jagajaga ooo, Emi Lokan oti di ebi lokan…you know say Buhari was incompetent, you still bring am to destroy Nigeria…”

‘My brothers and sisters, those are very powerful lyrics; typical of this fearless musician. Try looking for the video and watch for yourself. He even asked questions about our refineries and how much the government has made from the removal of subsidy. He demanded for the release of Nnamdi Kanu and follows it with a shout out to the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Pastor Adeboye. “During Goodluck Jonathan, your voice was so loud, you even vowed to stage one-million March, hunger and hardship under Tinubu government, you said Nigeria get spiritual problem. Baba, we need your one million disciples to protest against president Tinubu government as you protested against Jonathan government. Daddy, abi leg don dey pain your disciples…? Hahahaha. Eedris will not kill somebody with laughter. May God save Nigerians”
