Nigerian rapper Eedris Abdulkareem has taken a shot at President Muhammadu Buhari at the ongoing #Felabration2015, claiming Nigeria’s number one citizen was responsible for the death of Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
He was sentenced to five years in prison by the military tribunal for currency charges when Major-General Muhammadu Buhari took power after a coup in December 1983.
He also spent over a year in jail, only to regain his freedom when Buhari’s successor, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida granted him pardon two years later.
According to Mr Abdulkareem, during the October 16, #Felabration2015, he said: “In 1976, na Buhari kill Fela. Na the same old people dey rule us.”
