Raskimo – Under Pressure

Under pressure we wail under pressure

Under pressure black people under pressure

Under pressure Nigerians under pressure

Under pressure dance under pressure

No food in we belly

No money in a we pocket

No bed to lay we head

The people dem a suffer

In a ghetto

In a city…

The lyrics are self-explanatory, Need I even say more?

Eedris Abdulkareem

Following the release of his letter to mr president album, eedris abdulkareem controversial song jaga jaga became a monster hit after he went at the then Nigerian president Olusegun Obasanjo. The song was eventually banned from the radio but the deed was already done

Mr. President – African China

When a song from 2006 starts with ‘food no dey water no dey and our country no good’ and the words are still relevant in 2018, then you know you got a classic soong on your hand. African China letter to mr president was the soundtrack for the masses way back then and still is now.
