Veteran artiste, Eedris Abdulkareem is raising dust again. The controversial rapper in an interview on Goldmyne TV, he had a lot to say regarding embattled D’banj and ace producer, Don Jazzy.
While professing his admiration for Don Jazzy and acknowledging his impact in the comtemporary music scene, Eedris Abdulkareem delved into giving his opinion on D’banj’s craft and the split between both business partners.
According to Eedris, D’banj is talentless, only possesses good showmanship and theatrics. He is of the opinion D’banj splitting with Don Jazzy was his biggest mistake, stating Don Jazzy has the technical know-how to bring the best out of him.
In quote, “The biggest mistake someone like D’banj made was to be stupid and leave Don Jazzy. D’banj no get talent o, na razzmatazz e get. Don Jazzy has the technical back up to produce D’banj and make him sound very nice.”
He appreciated Don Jazzy for his impact on the younger generation. However, Eedris Abdulkareem has an issue with Don Jazzy taking a swipe at Mode 9 in 2012, when he said, “If you’re a rapper have it at the back of your mind, your parents aren’t proud of you.”
“….I love him (Don Jazzy) for that. But when e done dey try get to him head, him come dey tell Mode 9 if you’re a rapper your father will not be proud of you. Forgetting it was rappers that actually opened the ways, that made it all happen. That’s where I had problem with Don Jazzy. Any other thing he has done very well. He has encouraged the boys. He has added value to their lives. I appreciate him for that.”
