Eedris Abdulkareem has revealed he is strongly behind president Jonathan’s second term bid and wants Buhari to pave way for the youth. He also opened up on his relationship with former president Obasanjo.
Excerpts from his new interview :
What’s your current relationship with former President, Olusegun Obasanjo?
Obasanjo is my best friend and my mugu.
Can you expatiate more on what you meant by mugu?
What I’m saying is that when I came back from raising the Olympic touch, God inspired me to sing Nigeria JagaJaga. Luckily for me, the then president (Obasanjo) came on a national television, insulted my family and all sorts. Some people said the President might kill me, but I told them, “I’m not scared of anybody. I’m a muslim, I fear no one except Allah. I read my Quran.” So, I was happy that Obasanjo replied because his response brought food to my table. He made a superstar and elevated me above all my colleagues with his reactions to my song. That’s why I said he’s my mugu.
