Eedris Abdulkareem has released a song titled “Emilokan” to speak truth to power

Ace Nigerian rapper and songwriter Eedris Abdulkareem has released a song titled “Emilokan” to speak truth to power, addressing President Tinubu, Pastor E.A. Adeboye, and other notable figures on the current economic hardship in the country.
The “Nigeria Jagajaga” coroner accused Pastor E.A. Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), of silence on the country’s dire economic situation. He referenced Adeboye’s stance during Goodluck Jonathan’s administration when he threatened a million-person protest against the bad economy. Eedris questioned why Adeboye has not taken a similar stance now, with the same energy, to protest the decadence in the current political landscape and the worsening economy. Eedris states, “Baba, we need your one million disciples to protest against Tinubu’s government just like they did during Jonathan’s.” He described Pastor Adeboye’s silence as hypocrisy.
“You know sey Buhari was incompetent, you still bring am to come destroy Nigeria/ Padi padi government/ Now you are the president/ Since Buhari don destroy Nigeria/ I hope sey you go bring am to judgment/ Emefiele printed N23 trillion,” he added.
Some lines of “Emilokan” have now been turned into a pun, “Ebi Lokan,” meaning “It’s time for hunger, It’s time for starvation,” as hunger is being felt across the nation.
He also addressed the new minimum wage debate, a back-and-forth tussle between the government and labour unions (NLC and TUC).
The minimum wage has been upgraded to N65,000, and Eedris suggests that the same amount should be paid to Senators and House Representatives members so that they can experience the current economic hardship firsthand.
