Nigeria is still in a bad state 21 years after the release of my song ‘Jaga Jaga’ —Eedris Abdulkareem


Veteran Nigerian rapper Eedris Abdulkareem has disclosed that Nigeria is still in a bad state, if not worse, 21 years after the release of his controversial song, which he titled ‘Jaga Jaga’.

Eedris made the comments when he appeared in a recent episode of The Honest Bunch Podcast, co-hosted by actor Chinedu Ani Emmanuel, aka Nedu, Deity Cole, and Husband Material.

He said that people are dying every day as there is hunger everywhere in the land amid the rising cost of living and the rise in the dollar rate, which is now N1600 to $1 USD.

Eedris said, “Nigeria is still Jaga Jaga 21 years later. Hunger is everywhere, and people are dying. How will people survive when the dollar is N1600? Goodluck Jonathan left it N198. [Muhammadu] Buhari took it to N300; [Bola] Tinubu skyrocketed it to N1600.

“Dollar is going to N2000. So how do you want common people to survive in this country? Even the Yorubas they were shouting, ‘Emilokan’, they are the ones dying of hunger now.”
