It is a known fact that the old generation of Nigerian artists fought for Nigerian music to be where it is now. They paved way for the new generation artists. Eedris Abdulkareem says his sacrifices made Don Jazzy and others rich today.
Controversial rapper Eedris Abdulkareem claimed that new generation of Nigerian artists like Don Jazzy are making a lot of money because of the sacrifices the old generation like him made in the past.
“Without the old artists, the new artists won’t make money, because we fought for the life that they are living right now. We put food on their table because of what we fought for, and we are very happy, and that’s why we are legends, you understand. But if anyone of them tries to disrespect, we will put them back to where they belong. All of them, from Don Jazzy and all of them, they lived in London, how come the British government never gave them opportunity, and they had to come to Nigeria because we made it happen.”
Eedris music career began a nose-dived after his fight 50 Cent aboard ADC airline taking the artists from Lagos to Port Harcourt for a musical tour on December 4, 2015. Eedris reportedly attempted to sit in a seat reserved for 50 Cent, but was prevented from doing so.
50 Cent left Nigeria feeling disrespected and did not complete his lined up performances.
On his part, Eedris justified his fight saying he was protesting the difference in treatment given foreign and local artists during the musical tour. He had later tendered and open apology to 50 Cent during the 2007 KORA Awards in Abuja.
