Kcee defends Eedris Abdulkareem

Nigerian singer, Kingsley Okonkwo better known by his stage name KCee has come to the defence of his senior colleague, Eedris Abdulkareem.

Kemi Filani reported that while appearing on the Honest Bunch Podcast, Eedris narrated the infamous airplane incident with American rapper 50 Cent, who was headlining the Nigerian Breweries music tour.

According to Eedris, he sat in the business class section of the plane which 50 Cent’s crew claimed was exclusively for the American rapper. Eedris refused to leave claiming he had entered an agreement with the Nigerian Breweries to accord him the same treatment as 50 Cent.

Things took a sudden twist and a physical confrontation followed which Eedris claimed was recorded by veteran cinematographer DJ Tee and it got the attention of President Obasanjo who instructed the Inspector General of Police to step in.

Eedris claimed that the incident paved the way for Nigerian artists to be respected both at home and abroad.

Speaking on it in an interview with Naija 102fm, KCee noted how many of the people speaking on it, weren’t there. As a witness, he recounted the incident as he made it clear that 50 Cent wasn’t even at the scene as he was in his car.

He stated that Eedris isn’t a bad person, though he might have his flaws but in all, he was fighting for the good of the industry but maybe in the wrong way.

“I dey inside that fight, I sidon near Eedris, in fact, I was at the back, it was Eedris who told me to come to the front. E-Money was the only cameraman there that videoed everything. E-Money was my manager and he was always holding a camcorder videoing everything. The slap dey take give E-Money take collect that content ehn. He was the only one that had the content that day. Before that are talking about the issue today, are just saying it based on hearsay and they were not there. I don’t talk about the matter, because it pains me. That’s how the industry has been for so many years. Eedris didn’t even see 50 Cent that day, he was inside a car, and no one even saw him. It was his team that saw Eedris seated where he was supposed to see. And to be honest, Eedris isn’t that bad though e get his own for body. But d fight wey Eedris dey fight na good fight but maybe wrongly”.

Also defending him, Jaywon stated that Eedris made a lot of contributions to the industry which he wasn’t applauded for because of his arrogance. He stated that he sees the same in Burna Boy as he noted how what goes around comes around.

Meanwhile, Paul Okoye, who was around at that time, had slammed Eedris noting how he always picks fights with his colleagues, and insults reigning artists.

Paul stated that Eedris always talks about fighting for the industry which leaves him laughing as he recounted how Eedris betrayed the industry because of his greed.

Reacting to his statement of paving the way for artists, Odumodublvck stated that no one paved the way for them rather their hustling spirit got them to the top. He, however, stated that though one can be inspired, no one paved the way for another as such credit is for God.

Nigerian rappers, Ice Prince and Skibii also made a mockery of Eedris as they were captured mocking him as they watched the interview.
