Egberi Papa one of Bayelsa is not ready to give anybody unnecessary glory for his fame and that is what controversial Nigerian rapper, Eedris Abdulkareem is trying to do, although he doesn’t admit it.
In an interview, Eedris revealed that he made Timaya who he is, stating that he had told Timaya to tell the Bayelsan story rather than sing what every other person was singing. To Eedris, Timaya is not a good singer and even though he is trying to be like Tuface Idibia, he wasn’t able to achieve that. He went further to state that Timaya wouldn’t be this successful if he hadn’t given him the confidence he gave him.
On hearing this, Timaya has come out to slam Eedris for saying he is an ingrate. This attack on Timaya really got the singer riled and according to him, Eedris should go and shut up his fucking mouth. In his words,
“Yo this Eedris Abdulkareem guy, you gotta shut up your fucking mouth! You’re telling me that I’m an ingrate, I forgot you, how did you treat me? look at this idiot fool! because I did not say anything. I even called your name that I was your fucking backup artiste and you’re not even appreciative. Do you even know my name? You regarded me like a nobody, look at this fool! I paid my transport to your shows because I was learning… you have never paid me one day, you disregard people. How many people don blow through you? How many people have you helped? Where is the mafioso mafioso, all those people wey dey with you? you dey come open your mouth dey talk because people never answer you. You’re an idiot, don’t come to me! Go and ask dem Patoranking, Runtown, all those people were under me, even dem Skales… I dive everybody role. But you, you go just come on social media. I used to be your backup artiste and Tuface was still there, Tuface is big now, what the fuck are you? Don’t blame people, go and work! Dirty-looking Igbo smoker! Fuck you!”
Now, this is a lot! But we know we haven’t heard it all. Eedris Abdulkarim is becoming more controversial by the day as he goes from one artiste to the next, from Tuface to Timaya. The question is “who will be next?”
