MUSICIANS SUBSIDY PROTEST AND MUSIC VIDEOS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR PR

Due to the ongoing crises in the country, Nigeria's highlife king, Flavour released this comforting song to sooth the pains of Nigerians. In the past few days a large number of artists have joined the protest against the removal of fuel subsidy. The early protesters included Jesse Jagz, Seun Kuti and Banky W, who all came out to voice out their plights. Others who joined later included Olu maintain, Eedris Abdulkarem, Tiwa Savage, Omawunmi, Waje, Pasuma, Zeez, Femi Kuti, Eldee amongst others. It has also been rumored that they are using these as an opportunity to do PR. Whatever the case may be, a strong voice is always needed to hear a cry.

[color=orange]Similarly Eedris poured out his heart saying:[/color] “the man wey say i dey craze because i sing Nigeria jaga jaga where him dey now inside this hardship. Na 2002 I sing Nigeria JagaJaga, na 2012 we dey so o”, Eedris lamented to the mammoth crowd.

The rapper who has six albums credited to his career had released ‘Jaga jaga’, a single which described the country’s down-state back in 2002. Obasanjo supposedly replied him derogatorily.
Eedris disclosed that he was also approached to campaign for the current president but he said ‘no’. ‘They called me too but I turned them down, D’banj can’t be here because he knows he has disappointed the people’, Eedris said.
