Nigerian Hip Hop veterans, Eedris Abdulkareem and Konga team up for a socially-conscious piece of music titled “Trouble Dey Sleep.” On this one, the veterans simply step up to address many of the ills battling the Nigerian nation.

Eedris Abdulkareem has never refrained from speaking his mind about the polity. His sensational hit song, “Jaga Jaga” stirred up a lot of controversy, but at the same time, it brought to the fore many things that was wrong with the system at the time.

This time, he’s let those stinging flows flow again with “Trouble Dey Sleep.” Oko Ashewo just got tired of leaving the younger artist to take charge since they all seem to be more about the groove, the money and the damsels.

On this one, he addresses the pitiable state of affairs including corruption, insecurity, kidnaping, Boko Haram, Niger Delta, restructuring. In particular, he seemed to direct his ire against politicians and Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed especially.

The cabinent member is well-known for a lot of gaffes, including scoring the Senegalese jollof rice as the best over the Nigerian one in an interview with CNN’s Richard Quest. In addition to proposing a bill that bars music artists from shooting music videos abroad.

Konga simply came through with his free-flowing trademark kind of flows to support Eedris and complete the rout on “Trouble Dey Sleep.” In the end, we hope this piece of music is one that further raises the conversation about the myriad of Nigerian problems as an entity.
