The less than three-minute diss track was released on the back of the minister’s recent Twitter tirade over the singer’s ‘Jaga Jaga Reloaded’.
The drama had started last week after the musician — in the recently released sequel to an original track of the same name — accused the minister of ditching his characteristic activism since after he joined the present government.
Keyamo had fired back via his Twitter page on April 25, alleging that Abdulkareem’s claim was informed by the singer’s disgruntlement after his request to join the media team of President Mohammadu Buhari in 2018 was rejected.
The minister also narrated how the musician begged him for money and pleaded for help to “get into the system.”
Abdulkareem had reacted by claiming the cabal to which Keyamo belonged was in pain over his music release.
On Sunday, the diss song which dwells on Keyamo surfaced online, with the musician further taking a hit at the minister.

In the song, Abdulkareem made a number of allegations including one about his assailant using Stephanie Otobo, a Canada-based singer, to blackmail Apostle Suleman, the clergyman who battled a relationship scandal years ago.
“Keyamo, in 2018 when you got appointed, I thought you were still a comrade. I thought you could effect change in your government. That’s why I recorded ‘Obasanjo Write Buhari Letter’ to help you in that process,” he sang.
“Yes, a lot of people supported Buhari but we all regretted it. Keyamo, your government is full of propaganda. Nigeria is no longer safe. Kidnapping our children in their own schools. Blood flowing in our cities and villages.
“Extremism na hallmark of your government, abi you wan cover Pantami link to terrorist. Is your government not a cabal wey dey pamper terrorists? No be today nyash dey back. Use Stephanie Otobo blackmail Apostle Suleman.”
