Rapper Eedris Abdulkareem Claims He Paved The Way For Global Recognition Of Other Nigerian Artistes

Do you agree with this?
Rapper Eedris Abdulkareem, claims that he led the revolution that led to the global recognition of Musicians such as Burna Boy, Wizkid, Davido et al....


He said;“You heard someone like Burna Boy said nobody helped him in Nigeria. Would you have been a star without some people starting the revolution? That is a stupid talk. You wouldn’t have been where you are if we didn’t make this industry what it is; if we didn’t fight for it. Unfortunately, most of them don’t appreciate it. And I don’t give a dime.
It [fighting for Nigerian music industry] affected my career but it was a beautiful sacrifice that gave birth to Davido, Boy, Wizkid, and everybody today. For me, what’s more important is that I have done what God asked me to do and our music is now allover the world. I have opened the road for them. It’s their responsibility to appreciate the fight. And if them don’t, I don’t give a damn."

  1. If I’m to pick anyone who made the revolution it will be Rugged Man! He made all you weak MC’s cower, I remember listening to Eedris and my ears will cry blood, but when Ruggedy came out with “Ehen” it was game over for all of you, Yh Remedies had some tune, y’all were pioneers, but the revolution? Give it to Ruggedy Baba, Trybes Men, Azadus, Lord of Ajasa, Ruff Rugged and Raw, Modo etal..

  3. So what about people like King Sunny Ade and others say? Idris, give it a rest already. We know you also contributed in your own way. But you need to rest please.

  4. In a way its true but because of his superiority complexity. He blew his chances of being a good mentor. But kudos to Fela and King Sunny Ade.

    See this one wanting to take credit to try to revive the career he used his own hands to spoil.
    If you Idris want to take credit,where do you place the likes of Fela,Victor Uwaifo,Oliver the Coque,Oriental brothers,Osadebe,Bobby Benson,KSA,Onyeka Onwenu and the rest?
    Or the likes of Blakky,Daniel Wilson,Felixx and Mozixx,Jnr and Pretty,Evi Edna,Alex Zitto,Alex O,Chris Okotie and others that ruled the airwaves when you were writing common entrance?dey play
    It has always been his style to take the credit of others,hopefully,it makes you sleep well at night,shift abeg,mtshewwww.

    1. I think he is trying to lay claim to Nigerian music being embraced in the western world alongside the western music. The great oldies you listed aren’t known on Grammy levels or in clubs in the western world. I might be wrong tho ๐Ÿ˜Š

    2. You're wrong, the likes of Baba Fela, KSA and Femi kuti are well known on Grammy level @ the white enchantress

  6. A proverbs says that "little drops of water make an ocea.n" The little combined efforts of veteran musicians both living and departed played crucial roles in advancing Nigerian music. None should be downplayed .

    1. Yeah, it was a combined effort. In fact P Square, Sasha, Danfo driver twins, Lt Sound Sultan et al also contributed. Him trying to take all claims isn’t fair but then, life ain’t fair๐Ÿ˜
