Afrobeat singer questions Eedris Abdulkareem's role model status

"I have seen different videos of him talking about different artistes that are young enough to be his kids.

"I would have thought that if he was such a role model, there were better ways he could pass his message across but I have nothing against him. I have nothing more to say about him. I feel people just have different ways of expressing themselves."

Eedris Abdulkareem has always had a reputation of being belligerent thanks to a 2004 altercation with American rapper 50 Cent. A brawl was set in motion when he attempted to occupy a seat reserved for the world star.

The latter's bodyguards however prevented him for doing so which resulted in a fight that caused 50 to cancel the remainder of his performance. History remembers this as the beginning of a decline in Abdulkareem's career.

Three years after, the singer renders an apology to the rapper at the KORA Awards held in Abuja. Hatchets were buried but Abdulkareem's career stayed dead.
