Eedris Abdulkareem vs Festus Keyamo: A Show of Shame On Social Media
Busy Brain Writes in From Abuja, April 25th, 2021
The media war between the reputable Minister, Festus Keyamo and Nigerian rapper, Eedris Abdulkareem dragged many Nigerians to the court of public opinions. As many see some senses in what Keyamo did and praised him for exposing a long time private messages between him and the rapper. Many at the same time got disappointed in the honorable Minister for stooping so low to that extent of waspish revelation of what is expected to be private.
From the leaked text messages, Eedris actually approached Keyamo for a favour. Other request to support President Buhari's campaign was additional to get the loan from Keyamo.
Here is unedited text of Eedris as revealed by Keyamo : *"Thank God I finally met you today. Baba pls I need one small favour I need you in the name of God and our long time relationship to give me a loan to pay my outstanding bill and go back to Lagos and take care of my sick mum that undergoes dialysis once in a month"*
From the above, Eedris initially approached Keyamo for loan help in the name of God and long time friendship. Of course, no one gives you a loan and leaves you alone. I see other attachment of campaigning for Buhari as an avenue to seal the loan deal.
Many people opined that Eedris messed himself for turning himself to a beggar with such respect and humility before Keyamo and on the other hand, forming activist. Many accused Eedris of having interest in the National cake. Eedris approached Keyamo as a long time friend and the kind of relationship the duo maintained, not as a stranger. If not because of the relationship between them, why Keyamo and not other Politician.
Jagajaga reloaded that stirred tantrums, banters and controversies on twitter is another version of beautiful and satirical lyrics that addressed the woes betiding the country. Festus Keyamo dragged the public attention to his side. No one seems to bother about name calling but the message in the lyrics. Keyamo gave more strength and prominence to the music because he is pained and assumed his name was mentioned because he had once ghosted the rapper. Keyamo has forgotten that granting Eedris' request might not stop Jagajaga reloaded because many supported Buhari in 2015, 2019 and currently have become conk critics of the administration because of the horrible nature of the country.
Eedris might have intentionally called out Keyamo because he was ghosted but Keyamo should have allowed the sleeping dog to lie for the fact that the country is really jagajaga with persistent killings, kidnappings and attacks from left right and center.
Keyamo has no other messages to leak but Eedris has more lyrics to sing and music is a universal language that everyone understands.
Whether Keyamo is part of cabals or not, the fact remains that Nigeria is Jagajaga. Not admitting this fact is simply a show of shame.
