Lekki shooting: The dead will disturb you – Burna Boy tells Buhari, Sanwo-Olu, Army in new song

Published

on

The new Burna Boy song on the Lekki shooting “20:10:20” has been well-received.

The track censured the military attack on End SARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate.

Famous for human rights abuses, the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), terrorized several Nigerians.

Many were summarily killed or wounded publicly or in degrading cells by the operatives of the notorious unit.

For more than ten days, demonstrators in Lagos – where the agitation started on October 8 – and like minds across the country called for an end to police brutality.

On the night of Tuesday, October 20, 2020, Army troops marched to the Lekki rally ground and opened fire on unarmed citizens bearing national flags.

The incident sparked global condemnation and calls for prosecution of those responsible.

Burna Boy told President Muhammadu Buhari, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, and the Nigerian Army that the dead will disturb them for all their “atrocity”.

The music star also mentioned an unnamed “godfather” and “gbo gbo ijoba”, a veiled reference to Federal Government and Lagos State authorities.

Burna Boy, real name Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, accused the government of turning graduates to beggars and killing them for demanding justice.

“You carry army go kill many youth for Lekki, na so water ooo water runaway my eyes. Nothing you go talk wey go justify the case of their murder”, the lyrics read.

“The chief of staff, the commander and the army wey carry order; Mr President, Mr Governor, godfather, gbo gbo ijoba, all your atrocity, all of your corner-corner, make all the dead body disturb you for your dream.”

Burna Boy disclosed that proceeds of the song will be used to support families of victims and people suffering affliction caused by the Lekki shooting.

“May the heavens open and celebrate all our fallen heroes who have died for this movement from the very beginning. Rest in peace to all the beautiful lives lost”, he said.

When will you get out of these?

Voices of mockery everywhere

Windows unchoked

Outside unplastered

Open roof; house ceiling not in place

You look up to your pilot

As you are in an airplane of problem

Murmurs from here and there fills your ears

Question marks here and there

Ignorant voices questions

Even your mind questions you

When scorpion becomes the order of the day

Though your pilot is in control

Short-put for defecation

Officialdom has also become one of your questionnaire

Boom; they appear unknown to you

Appear on a faithful day

Large mouths threatens to lock the house

Where is your lavatory?

Children’s hands spread out to indicate

Every landed space as a loo

Officialdom cheekbone is now red due to fury

Your pilot is in control

You guys, the parents vroom at dayspring; at that time

At that time; church member is sent by pilot

As a air-hostess to serve them cold drinks

To cool their temper

To lighten their souls

Air-hostess serve them cold drinks

Still their bulging eyes burns with fury

These officialdom are still not settled

Padlocks already in the hands of their leader

With bulging eyes

Eyes wide enough to swallow up the children and the plane of problem

Church member pleads

Pleads a thousand times

Your pilot finally controls their leader

Story narrated to you on getting home

You are ever grateful to the one UNSEEN

You are grateful to your pilot

Patience ran the race for you

In less than a decade you are out

Out of your plane of problem

The voices of mockery are silent

Itchy ears are deaf

Your pilot has landed you

Safe on Canaan land

You are forever happy

Hence you are no longer in your plane of problem.

 

 Summary: This is about a family that have been managing in a meager house for almost ten years, the family believes that they are in a plane of problem, the parents did not see their problem as poverty because money coming in was used in investing on their children lives.

Too late to revive you

For the cold fingers already held you by the throat

For the sickness has eaten you deep

Deep beyond measures

The last pin entered your skin

Its content deliberating life or death

The last pin entered into your skin and its content sent you packing

Out of these beautiful world

Oh no the youngest owner watched

Watched the world crumble

For our beautiful Desdemona breath her last

Breath her last; at the same time tears dropped

Out of our last born’s eyes.

“Nigerian pastors are fraudsters” – Singer, Samklef says, reconciles with Daddy Freeze

Published

on

Nigerian Singer, Samklef and Daddy Freeze have ended their squabble 3 years after they mercilessly dragged and blocked each other on social media.

Recall that in 2018, Samklef and Daddy Freeze disagreed over religion.

Trouble started when Freeze criticized a report about the healing of a mentally challenged man at an RCCG church.

Samklef, who was displeased with his critics against men of God, slammed Freeze, telling him that his constant criticism of the church was getting boring.

The exchange heated up, with Freeze telling Samklef his career was dead which led to the singer calling him a “fake ass oyinbo” and his followers “mumu Satan followers”.

What Daddy Freeze said about Sound Sultan after his death

Following the development, they later blocked and unfollowed each other on all their social media platforms.

However, Samklef took to his Instagram account on Sunday to reach out to Daddy Freeze, stating that he can now see “clearly”.

He said most religious leaders are “419” and Freeze was right all along.

“I was blind and ignorant but now I understand and can see clearly.

“Everything Daddy Freeze has been saying is the truth. 90 percent of the so called Nigerian men of God are fraudsters.

“It’s your faith that makes you whole so they collect money for miracles that happens through you.

‘Praying to Lucifer more effective than praying to Jesus’ – Daddy Freeze

“Daddy Freeze is the John the baptist of this generation. I can finally see,” he wrote.

In his response, Freeze acknowledged his acceptance and admitted he should have been patient with Samklef at the time.
