How I Paved Way For Burna Boy, Wizkid, Davido, Others – Eedris Abdulkareem

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Nigerian singer, Eedris Abdulkareem, has alleged that the global recognition Burna Boy, Wizkid, Davido, and other Nigerian artists are enjoying today was as a result of his efforts.

Eedris stated this in the latest episode of The Honest Bunch Podcast as he stated that his revolt against the poor treatment of Nigerian artistes by show promoters in 2004 after he clashed with popular American rapper 50Cent and his G-Unit members in Nigeria was the reason the country’s artistes are now being celebrated worldwide.
According to him, his rebellion affected his career, but he added that “it was a beautiful sacrifice that gave birth to Burna Boy, Wizkid, Davido”.

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 dime.”
