Veteran Nigerian rap star, Eedris Abdulkareem, in a recent Instagram post announced the release of a new version of his socially conscious hit single, Jaga Jaga.
The rapper had disclosed that a brand new music video for the 2004 hit song will be released on Tuesday, April 20.
According to a press statement shared on his Instagram page, the new video is an attempt by the rapper to address issues that he had previously sang about 20 years ago when the first version was released.
The statement read in part:
"Jaga Jaga Reloaded" is vintage Eedris Abdulkareem, still painfully bemoaning the fact that his beloved country is still in a state of "Jaga Jaga" almost 20 years after the release of the original version that exposed the depth of corruption, lies and deceit in our system, while calling out the vagabonds in power to account for their litany of misdeeds."
The new video features Madarocka Chi and rapper Nigga Raw.
