‘I’ve been vindicated because Nigeria is still jaga jaga,’ says Eedris Abdulkareem

Nigerian singer, Eedris Abdulkareem, said the present state of things in the country has vindicated his decision to come up with “Nigeria Jaga Jaga” in 2002.

He stated this while appearing on “Rubbin’ Minds” a programme on Channels Television.

The controversial singer stated he was happy that the song amassed several reactions, including the attention of then President Olusegun Obasanjo.

He said: “In 2002 I dropped Nigeria Jaga Jaga, and the ex-president came on the National TV and said that boy wey sing that song, na him papa and him family jaga jaga.

“I was very happy that my message got to the president. I was very happy that the president talked back at me because that means they were listening and today I’ve been vindicated again because Nigeria is still jaga jaga.”

He vowed to continue criticising the various ills in the country, like late musician, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.

“For me, life is about choices and whatever you choose to stand for, you have people who want to live that life with you,” he said.
