Nigerian singer Eedris Abdulkareem has stirred controversy with his latest satirical song titled ‘Emilokan’, where he takes aim at prominent figures including Pastor E.A. Adeboye, the senior pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), and President Bola Tinubu.

In the song, Eedris accuses Adeboye of hypocrisy for his silence on the hardships faced by Nigerians under Tinubu’s administration. He pointed out that Adeboye was vocally critical of former President Goodluck Jonathan’s government but has not been equally outspoken about the current administration’s failures.

Eedris expressed his frustrations, stating, “During Goodluck Jonathan, your voice was so loud, you vowed to stage a one-million-dollar march. Hunger and hardship under Tinubu’s government; you said Nigeria has a spiritual problem.”

The singer called on Adeboye to mobilise his followers for a protest against Tinubu’s government, just as he did during Jonathan’s tenure. “Baba, we need your one million disciples to protest against Tinubu’s government just the way you protested against President Jonathan. This is a very big hypocrisy; this is the time for you to speak the truth to power because hunger wants to kill Nigerians,” he urged.


Eedris Abdulkareem also criticised the slogan ‘Emi Lokan’ [It’s my turn], popularised by Tinubu during his electoral campaign, suggesting that it has now become ‘Ebi Lokan’ [It’s hunger’s turn] as Nigerians continue to suffer from widespread hunger. “Emi lokan don turn ebi lokan. Yorubas are screaming ‘ebi panwao ooo’,” he lamented.

Furthermore, addressing the issue of minimum wage, Eedris proposed that senators and members of the House of Representatives should be paid ₦65,000, aligning their salaries with the hardships experienced by ordinary Nigerians. “Everybody would enjoy the suffering and smiling,” he remarked.
