Eedris Abdulkareem, former member of defunct music group, Eddyremedies, has verbally attacked widely acclaimed afro-pop legend, 2face Idibia, for disrespecting self styled king of the jungle, Daddy Showkey, and for pulling out of the peaceful protest against the federal government, championed by Enough is Enough group, early last month.
Recall that 2face who had initially indicated his interest to lead entertainers and other interested persons on the peaceful protest later expressed his decision to withdraw as a result of purported security threats.
In a recent interview, Eedris who once went on self exile as a result of his song Jaga Jaga, blasted 2face for starting a movement he wasn’t capable of pulling off. In his opinion, 2face should have just accepted his fate as a crooner of love songs instead of trying to imitate the likes of Fela and other legendary freedom fighters, who used their songs and other means available to fight the government.
Eedris said, “People are tired of noise on air, they want to listen to real music, we made it all happen so you all came back home to make money so show some respect fools. Without us these idiots won’t make that money they are making. The other day 2face go dey disrespect daddy Showkey, you for tell Daddy Showkey say you no go come studio, who you be, you dey mad? You don forget say na Blackface write all your hits, or who send you make you go put your hand for protest wey dem nor call you, wey you nor know anything about. Waka Wiki MC, I nor tell you say na you be the Plantashunz? I nor tell you say make you no let am get to your head? Nigga wake up men, all the good guys wey dey around, you show all of them finish you come still go dey start the protest, you come think say you go fit do am alone, you don forget say what you do basically is love songs; dey impregnate people dey go”, he ranted.
