Celebrities Behaving Badly: Eedris Abdulkareem Calls President Obasanjo ‘Mugu’


 I can’t understand why Eedris Abdulkareem always seems to just fly off the chain at the word “go.” I am yet to see this artist just happy. It always seems like he is ready to go on the defense and attack.

So Obasanjo thinks one of my favorite political song by a Nigerian artist, “Jagajaga’ means Eedris does not believe in the future of the country. That is a great opportunity for Eedris to step in, explain that he does believe, reinforce his song and ask for accountability from Nigeria’s leaders.

But what does he do? He responds with calling the ex-president “Mugu” which is an Americanized way of saying “fool.” The word is actually “mumu” but after 60minutes did a feature on Nigerian 419 Fraudsters and made the mistake of saying “mugu,” Nigerians have added “mugu” to the slang vocabulary for saying fool.

Thenetng.com reports Abdulkareem’s latest not so positive conduct in the limelight.

“Nigerian rapper Eedris Abdulkareem has called Olusegun Obasanjo’s a ‘Mugu’after the former president recently criticized him for recording his 2004 hit song ‘Jaga jaga’.

Obasanjo while speaking at a forum organized by Nigeria Leadership Initiative (NLI) on Tuesday, August 28, 2012, recalled Abdulkareem’s 2004 hit track ‘Jaga jaga’ sayng that the KENNIS Music rapper doesn’t believe in the future of the country.

Apparently angered by Obasanjo’s statement, Abdulkreem took to micro-blogging site Twitter to bear his mind out.

Eedris called OBJ his ‘joy therapy’, stating it is obvious ‘Obasanjo can’t do without him’

It’s obvious that Obasanjo can’t do without me. I’m his joy therapy. Mr expresident, Nigeria still dey jagajaga infact worst pass jagajaga‘, @idris_Abdulkarm tweeted. . .
