Nigerian singer, Eedris Abdulkareem, says he feels vindicated 18 years after he released his hit song, ‘Nigeria Jaga Jaga’.
The singer said this during an interview with Channels TV’s Rubbing Minds on Sunday, explained that while he had been openly criticized by some at the time he released the song, including the then-president of the country, now he feels vindicated because the country has remained the same.
“In 2002 I dropped Nigeria Jaga Jaga, and the ex-president came on the National TV and said that boy wey sing that song, na him papa and him family jaga jaga.
“I was very happy that my message got to the president. I was very happy that the president talked back at me because that means they were listening and today I’ve been vindicated again because Nigeria is still jaga jaga.”
” ‘Jaga Jaga’ is a term which has been used to describe something in a state of chaos or disarray.
“For me, life is about choices and whatever you choose to stand for, you have people who want to live that life with you,” Eedris said.
