Eedris Abdulkareem Rubbish President Tinubu, Pastor Adeboye in His New Song “Emi Lokan”

Nigerian Rapper Eedris Abdulkareem has released a new song titled “Emi Lokan” were he blasted prominent figures like President Bola Tinubu, Muhammadu Buhari, and Pastor Adeboye.

The 50-year-old rapper has taken a swipe at the President and the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Enoch Adeboye, with his just released single “Emi Lokan”.

He blasted President Tinubu

Eedris starts rapping on this note “Emi lokan don turn ebi lokan” which “It’s my turn has now changed to it’s time for hunger”“.

The phrase “Emi Lokan” was synonymous with Tinubu’s presidential election era—a statement he made during one of his many campaigns. Emi lokan means “it is my turn.”

How, then, does it turn to “Ebi Lokan” as sung by Eedris’. Ebi Lokan means “it’s hunger time”, a reality Nigerians in Nigeria have been experiencing day in and day out since the day after President Tinubu’s swearing-in on 29 May 2023.

Going further, he raps, saying 👇

👉 Yorubas are screaming “Ebi Pa Wa

👉 Hausas are screaming “Muna Jin Yunwa

👉 Igbos are saying “E Nor Concern Us”.

All of these are to bolster the hunger and hardship that has hit the nation and the divide it’s served.

He also highlighted a claim on the discrimination of the Igbos as he raps, “Don’t blame them, Igbos are being discriminated against”. The first three words, “Don’t blame them,” come from the assertion of Igbos being unconcerned about the ongoing hardship in the nation, thus following up on his statement about Igbos being discriminated against.

He continues rapping 👇

Even food don turn to gold in Nigeria”, emphasising how expensive it is to afford food today. Furthermore, he raps “kidnapping, lucrative business in Nigeria”.

He goes on to paint a mental picture of what would be if the president’s grandchildren were kidnapped: “Imagine say na your grandchildren wey Dem kidnap, by now your soldiers for don scatter Nigeria”.

All of the above, he addressed what he termed “The sluggish unconcern of the presidency to food scarcity, insecurity and the lives of Nigerians in general”.

Pastor Adeboye was called out also

In another verse, Eedris reminds Pastor Adeboye of how he spoke against injustice during Goodluck Jonathan’s government.

He raps, “Where is our daddy, Pastor Adeboye? During Goodluck Jonathan[‘s regime], your voice was so loud”.

He also reminded him of how he proposed to lead a protest against Mr Jonathan’s government at the time: “You even vowed to stage a one-million-man march”.

Eedris also accused the clergyman of being hypocritical in this era of hardship under Tinubu’s government “Hunger and hardship under Tinubu government; you say Nigeria get spiritual problems”, he raps.

Furthermore, he implores the clergyman to enact his one-million-man protest 👇

“Our Daddy, Pastor Adeboye, during Goodluck Jonathan, your voice was so loud. You even vow to stage one million match.

Hunger and hardship under Tinubu government you ‘say’ Nigeria get spiritual problem. Baba we need your one million disciples to protest against President Tinubu govt just the way you protest against President Jonathan.

“Daddy abi leg don dey pain your disciples? Dis na very big hypocricy. It is time for you to speak to truth to power because hunger wan kill Nigerians,” Eedris Abdulkareem mentioned in the video clip.

He ends it with a sarcastic rhetorical question: “Daddy, abi legs don dey pain your disciples?
