The veteran singer got banned from playing on the radio and also from performing in events and live concerts when he dropped the first version of the song in 2004.
In the four-minute song, Eedris condemns the corrupt practices of the Nigerian government, police brutality, the worsening living conditions in the country and also cited the shootings that happened in Lekki Tollgate on October 20, 2020, during the EndSARS protest.
The song also criticizes the President Muhammadu Buhari administration which it describes as a “democracy military”
Eedris also takes a jab at Keyamo, saying "Where Festus Keyamo sef? He don dey chop with cabal o."
Keyamo, who was agitated exposed the singer's 'poor attempt at blackmail' revealing how Eedris was eager to join President Buhari's camp for a price in 2018 and how he begged for N1.3 million.
In a lengthy post on Twitter, Keyamo said, “Eedris Abdulkareem just released a song, ‘jagajaga reloaded’, where he waxed the following lyrics, “I laughed out so loud and even danced to the rhythm too. But there’s a small story behind this poor attempt at blackmail."
The minister backed his claims with screenshots of text message exchanges between himself and the rapper which he shared in a series of posts on his verified social media handles.
In a clap back, Eedris took to his Instagram to state that he stood with Keyamo when he was in jail and also fought the then President Olusegun Obasanjo on behalf of the comrades who were in prison.
Eedris tagged him a cabal member and added that “Keyamo is in pains because his next ambition is to be governor of Delta State.”
Explaining why he dropped a remix of his classic, ‘Jaga Jaga’, he said, “With a vexed spirit, I went again to the studio for “Jagajaga Reloaded” and the Blackmailer went to town. The cabal is awoken. The cabal is hit. The cabal is in pain. The cabal is failing. The cabal will FALL.”
