Afro-Pop Artist Matthew Joshua Chukwubuikem better known as M-Josh has released another sterling single to his upcoming album.
The Reggae infused single titled ‘Abacha Loot’ adds to his wonderful array of vocal works criticising the Federal Government and the corruption which has completely festered all arms of the Nigerian Government whilst noticeably taking a leaf or two from Fela’s afrobeat resistance songs.
Abacha Loot talks about the famed General Sani Abacha and how he looted Nigeria blind and turned the Federal reserves into a personal account during his sojourn in power from 1998 till his life was cut short in 1998 thus relieving him from power.
The Music video which was directed by Ace director Ayotunde Elegbede was in tune to the vocals of the song and helped to pass a strong message of oppression and bad leadership.
Throwing jibes at past leaders from independence till date, M-Josh highlights how politicians and statesmen have been taking Nigerians for a long roller coaster ride, while completely ripping off the economy and making things worse for Nigerian citizens. He also talks about the fact that the Abacha loot that was supposed to be used to the benefit of Nigerians has suddenly disappeared into ‘Thin air’ and relooted by corrupt Nigerian leaders.
The song is an eye-opener and a brave attempt at a call for reformation and restructuring.
