I Sacrificed My Career For Those “A list” Artist You Celebrate Today – Edris Abdulkareem



Controversial singer, Eedris Abdulkareem, has claimed that he led the revolution that led to the global recognition of artist such as Burna Boy, Wizkid, Davido, and other Nigerian artists.

He said his revolt against the poor treatment of Nigerian artistes by show promoters in 2004 when he clashed with American rapper 50Cent and his G-Unit members in Nigeria was the reason the country’s artists are now being respected worldwide.

Speaking in the latest episode of The Honest Bunch Podcast, Abdulkareem admitted that his rebellion affected his career, but added that “it was a beautiful sacrifice that gave birth to Burna Boy, Wizkid, Davido.”

The veterian act was quoted saying :

The 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 dime.”
