Hours ago, the Minister of State, Labour & Employment, Festus Keyamo, accused singer Eedris Abdulkareem of attempting to blackmail him.
Keyamo released chats where Eedris had reached out to him, asking to release a pro-Buhari song. When his request was denied, he decided to release a song, disparaging Festus Keyamo and the Buhari-led administration.
Festus called the singer and others like him “activists-by-day-and-hustlers-at-night.”
Reacting to the allegation, Eedris accused Keyamo of turning his back on him in his time of need despite being there for him.
I really don’t understand people anymore. All I see here is two kids in adult body.🤷
Wait, is life so serious that I’m not longer aware?🤦
Your mother is dying, she requires dialysis every month, you have kids to feed and bills to pay, you have projects that requires funds to sail, and then KEYAMO is your friend and you know that he has got the money.
So because he serves in a government that you regularly criticize, then he can’t be your friend and you cannot approach him for support?
Eedris Abdulkareem and Festus Keyamo should be ashamed of themselves. Two kids in adult body.
So two siblings cannot live in a house in peace and be supporters of Chelsea and Arsenal and enjoy a game together without breaking the TV?
Siblings and friends can’t be members of different political parties too?
Activist Owoyele Sowore’s brother is a core member of APC and holds a position in government. So if he decides to gift Sowore a car on his birthday, should Sowore reject it?
If Sowore has a project and his brother could harness his influence and back it up with resources, should Sowore not approach him because the money is from a government he condemns?
Is Buhari or APC the owner of all money in Nigeria?
Eedris Abdulkareem has every right to ask for help from anyone irrespective of how they make their money. Festus Keyamo is just a lawyer without brain.
What about “The Saraki Family” in Kwara state with Senator Bemisola Saraki and Bukola Saraki chronically indifferent in stand and party but still meeting often to advance the family’s business.
If someone is a drug dealer and they are generous to me, why should I feel guilty when they are arrested when I know nothing about the crime or been part of it, can anyone of us honestly swear that all the money they’ve ever been given or taken were from people who sourced them cleanly, the big churches sprouting like mushrooms here and there, were do you think most donations for them by members of the churches comes from?
Eedris Abdulkareem shouldn’t have called out Keyamo in the jagajaga reloaded song. I listened to it too and cringed. He even strategically said it as the sinker, which means if you fail to remember any lyrics of the song, that part will not be lost on you.
But Festus Keyamo is the bigger man, the more educated and exposed, not just a barrister of law but a senior advocate of Nigeria and a serving minister. He shouldn’t have responded. Releasing phone number and screenshots or private chats. So childish and silly.
Besides, the song wasn’t trending, he should have left it so, but now he’s giving the otherwise uninteresting and uninspiring track the needed publicity.
And if you know anything about advertisement, you’d know that no publicity can be bad publicity.
Festus Keyamo shouldn’t have replied and not disgustingly like he did,
Indeed age, experience, status and money is not a function of wisdom.
Not in any way. Two kidmen.🤦
I don’t have issues with Idris begging Keyamo for money. We all beg in different ways. But trying to do a PR for a govt you think has not performed is my worry. Or is it a case of seprating business and from conscience? Idris is a hypocrite.
On the Keyamo part, like I said earlier, as a lawyer, he shouldn’t have responded and releasing phone number and screenshots or private chats. So childish and silly. Should I be worried of my secret with my private lawyer going forward? Where do we draw the line between emotion and Ethic of profession?
If someone like Keyamo is your personal lawyer, I feel so sorry for you. You’re not safe.
Eedris Abdulkareem VS Festus Keyamo: Who Is At Fault, Childish, Hungry & A Political Idiot?
