Eedris Abdulkareem, Nigerian rapper has released another diss song to condemn Festus Keyamo, minister of state for labour and employment.
The less than three-minute diss track was released on the back of the minister’s recent Twitter tirade over the singer’s ‘Jaga Jaga Reloaded’.
TheNewsGuru recalls that the drama had started last week after the musician — in the recently released sequel to an original track of the same name, accused the minister of ditching his typical activism since after he joined the present government.
Keyamo reacted via his Twitter page on April 25, alleging that Abdulkareem’s assertion was informed by the singer’s dissatisfaction after his request to join the media team of President Mohammadu Buhari in 2018 was rejected.
The minister also recounted how the singer begged him for money and pleaded for help to “get into the system.”
In his reaction, Eedris said the cabal to which Keyamo belonged, was in discomfort over his music release.
On Sunday, the diss song which focuses on Keyamo surfaced online, with the musician further throwing another jab at the minister.
Abdulkareem made a few allegations in the song including one about his attacker using Stephanie Otobo, a Canada-based singer, to blackmail Apostle Suleman, the cleric who battled a relationship scandal years ago.

“Keyamo, in 2018 when you got appointed, I thought you were still a comrade. I thought you could effect change in your government. That’s why I recorded ‘Obasanjo Write Buhari Letter’ to help you in that process,” he sang.
“Yes, a lot of people supported Buhari but we all regretted it. Keyamo, your government is full of propaganda. Nigeria is no longer safe. Kidnapping our children in their own schools. Blood flowing in our cities and villages.
“Extremism na hallmark of your government, abi you wan cover Pantami link to terrorist. Is your government not a cabal wey dey pamper terrorists? No be today nyash dey back. Use Stephanie Otobo blackmail Apostle Suleman.”
