A few days ago, former president Olusegun Obasanjo while speaking on some burning national issues made reference to Kennis music act, Eedris Abdulkareem’s song “jaga jaga.” This is the second time the ex-ruler will be making reference to the singer over the same song title.
If you recollect, the song was released when Chief Olusegun Obasanjo was still president of Nigeria and now, five years after he left the seat of power, the two are still engaged in a war of words and wits. According to Obasanjo, ‘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’.
Eedris Abdulkareem in typical fashion has taken on the former ruler via twitter as he called him “…my mugu”. See full tweet:
What’s your take on this back and forth exchange of words between these two Nigerians?
