Eedris AbdulKareem

Protesters in Lagos flooded twitter with their tweets earlier today when artist Eedris Abdulkareem, at the Lagos protest, went “jagajaga” on D’Banj during his speech. Thousands of tweets report he stated:

“The man wey say i dey craze because i sing nigeria jaga jaga where him dey now inside this hardship”Na 2002 I sing Nigeria JagaJaga, na 2012 we dey so o. And all of una wey sing for Goodluck, F*ck that bastard D’banj for collecting Money from Goodluck ,God will punish you.”

Do I smell defamation and complete injury to reputation if D’Banj never took money from GEJ? Eedris you need to calm down, like really calm down. Eedris has also been lucky. This year started with reports that he beat his label mate Jay Won to a pulp according to numerous alleged eye witness account. GEJ just happened to give us this very serious issue to talk about. Otherwise Eedris would have been the talk of the town. Again calm down Eedris.
