Rebel singer, EEdris Abdulkareem has released a new flick aptly titled ‘Trouble dey Sleep’ and the single simultaneously released alongside its video is generating ripples.
And in his trademark, the ‘rebel’ rapper-singer is all about calling names and stirring the nations political hornet’s nest.
The music clip begins with a clip of Lai Mohammed’s infamous interview with Richard Quest on which Jolof rice is the sweetest in Africa
and the minister gave it to Senegal. Abdulkareem says: “Fellow Nigerians, listen carefully, I bumped into Atiku Abubakar in Dubai, him talk say we need to restructure Nigeria and when I met Major Al-Mustapha at Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, he said: “Eedris, how old is corruption.”
As he concludes his opening speech, he belts out: “How old is corruption… na who be corruption age mate? na who born corruption? Shey no be bad leaders”.
As the song progresses, Abdulkareem goes on to call out the minister of information over his comments on the shooting of music videos and movies abroad.
The rapper also criticises political and government leaders who patronise foreign establishments, while lamenting the Biafra and Niger Delta agitations, corruption, and poor infrastructure in the country and ends with Dino Melaye’s ‘Ajekun Iya’
