Presidency on Saturday commended a musician, King Wasiu
Ayinde Marshal 1 (KWAM 1) who sang ‘When Buhari returns for
2nd term, corrupt people will flee into jugle’, noting that people
should always listen to the song.
In statement released by Mr Femi Adesina, Senior special assistant
to President Muhammadu Buhari on media and publicity,
presidency said that King Wasiu issued a yellow card to corrupt
people in the country.
Well, the words above are not mine. They are from a special video
recently released by fuji music maestro, Wasiu Ayinde Marshal,
popularly known as K1 De Ultimate.
Do you speak or understand Yoruba? Have you heard the music?
You need to, if you haven’t. The musician, who used to be known
as King Wasiu Ayinde Marshal 1 (KWAM 1), before he rebranded
as K1 De Ultimate, is issuing a yellow card (or if you like, red, I
mean the authentic red, not the spurious one a certain woman is
brandishing round the country with a sparse crowd in attendance
at her rallies) to corrupt people, who are conspiring to stop
President Muhammadu Buhari from getting a second term.
Let me attempt a transliteration of the song:
No matter the conspiracy,
Though evildoers join their hands together
Buhari will do a second term,
You conspirators, corrupt people,
When Buhari gets a second term,
You better flee into the jungle
Sai Baba, Sai Buhari
Those of you who spoilt Nigeria
And are now conspiring,
You thieves, illegal bunkerers
Who carry oil without paying,
You thieves, not allowing Nigerian youths to thrive,
When Buhari comes for a second term
You better flee to the jungle.
Buhari does not steal fuel, he has no oil bloc,
His wife does not do illegal bunkering,
Evildoers, your enemy is here,
Sai Baba, Sai Buhari
Your father-before-father is here,
Those of you bribing people to malign Buhari,
He is your Nemesis,
When he comes for second term
You better flee into the jungle.
I am with Sai Baba.
Asiwaju has spoken.
And we have heard.
Buhari is our choice, he’s the one we’ll vote for
Sai Baba, Sai Buhari!
How I wish everyone understands Yoruba, so that we all can
savour this music. Non-Yorubas, but who understand the language
would do well to translate the music into their mother tongue, and
share it widely. The music should be sung from the rooftops, and
proclaimed from the mountains. Every progressive minded
Nigerian should hear it, and pass on the torch. Carry your candle,
run to the darkness…Take your candle, go light your world.
Sai Baba, Sai Buhari.
