It might interest you to know that former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s anger
towards Nigerian rapper, Eidris Abdulkarem’s 2004 hit song, “Nigeria
jaga jaga”, has not yet subsided.
Still so embittered over Abdulkareem’s hit track, which ruled the
airwaves in 2004, OBJ, affirmed that it shows
that the singer doesn’t believe in future of the country.
According to him, “One of the worst problems Nigeria is facing is
disbelief. Nigerians no longer believe in themselves neither do they
believe in their country. That takes me back to that song ‘jaga jaga’.
How could a sane man dare to call his country jajajaja? It is the height
of blasphemy. We are grooming our youths for tomorrow’s leadership and
with such persons I don’t think the country can move forward.
Obasanjo (OBJ) stated this yesterday in Lagos at a forum organized by Nigeria Leadership Initiative (NLI).
‘Everything Jagajaga, poor man dey suffer suffer, everything thing jagajaga gbosa gbosa…(who remembers that song?)’
