Nigerians have lambasted the Minister of State, Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo and famous singer Eedris Abdulkareem over the accusations the Minister levelled against the singer, who recently released Jaga Jaga Reloaded.
Keyamo noted that Abdulkareem threw a jab at him in his song, accusing the Minister of wining and dining with the cabals in Nigeria.
The Minister, who said that he danced and laughed out so loud to the rhythm, added that there is a story behind what he tagged a poor attempt at blackmailing him.
According to Keyamo, when he was named the Director of Strategic Communications for Buhari Campaign Organisation in 2018, Eedris waxed a song supporting Buhari and wanted to join the Buhari team.
The Minister added that the singer made desperate efforts to see him through text messages from his phone, noting that he told Eedris that there was no budget for such when he finally met with the singer and listened to the song.
Keyamo accused the singer of releasing Jaga Jaga reloJaga Jagavent his frustrations at not getting into the system.
Reacting to the thread on Twitter, many Nigerians lambasted Festus Keyamo and Eedris, describing them as activists during the day and hustlers at night, meaning they care more about their pockets even when they pretend to be fighting for the masses.

Below are some of the comments on the allegations raised by Festus Keyamo.
@AyoBankole said, “Keyamo is truly chopping & now DEFENDS the oppression he fought against 3. Both Eedris & Keyamo are activists by day, hustlers by night. But Keyamo is now FULL TIME hustler.”
@ena_ginjah01 said, “I always tell people that the likes of Keyamo, Ozekhome and Falana are in the same Whatsapp group. They all used the cloak of ‘Human Rights Activism’ to enrich themselves and seek fame in the public space to boost their portfolio.”
Another famous tweep, @DrOlufunmilayo, said, “Look at what Keyamo has done to Eedris. Never dine witNigerianan politicians. They are absolute pigs that will drag you in the mud the day you decide you no longer want to play ball. But don’t be deceived. Festus was once like Eedris. Activists by day. Hustlers at night.”
