As he revealed the background to the Jagun Jagun narrative, Adebayo also urged a reawakening among Nigeria’s youth.
According to him, “What inspired Jagun Jagun is the involvement of youths in society… For this people in power cannot commit any’so-called evil’ without using the youth… as the instrument of destruction… To the youths, stop allowing yourself to be used as instruments of destruction… That inspired the message I wanted to pass.”
