Veteran Nigerian singer and music legend, Eedris Abdulkareem, has returned with his controversial opinions about the success of the younger generation of Nigerian singers who he says would have amounted to nothing without him.
Last year, he fired shots at 2Face Idibia, Davido, D’banj, Timaya, P’Square, and a host of artistes. According to him, they wouldn’t have had a career to boast of if he had not paid the price to get music up and going in Nigeria. But then, some of the named artiste disagreed with him and clapped back at him and even called him very ugly names.
It was noticed that Eedris went cold when the bashes started coming to him from the younger generation of Nigerian singers and everyone thought he had gotten what he asked for, thus retiring for good. But it is quite shocking to see him rise again with a fresh opinion about Davido and Wizkid who he says wouldn’t have made it without him.
Speaking live on stage, Eedris told a roaring crowd that he paved the way for Wiz and OBO. In order words, he is like their father in the music game who gave birth to them and pushed them to the height they now are
