Several reports claimed that the song was a jab at Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the APC candidate for president of Nigeria in 2023.

The group’s members danced and sang in the one-minute video, “Hand dey shake, leg dey shake, baba wey no well he dey shout Emi Lokan,” which is generally translated as “With an unstable hand and leg, a man with a poor health is sounding off that it’s his turn to be Nigeria’s president.”


On June 3, 2022, during a meeting with party delegates in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Tinubu voiced frustration about the lack of support for his bid to secure the party’s presidential nomination. It was at this time that the phrase “Emi Lokan” began to circulate around the country.

The fact that he had contributed to Muhammadu Buhari’s election as president in 2015, he stated.

  • It is imperative that I make it clear and unmistakable that I am not involved in that public performance or in any way connected to the emotions stated in the songs because everyone is aware of my affiliation with that fraternity.
