Nigerian hip hop artist, Eedris Abdulkareem, born Eedris Turayo Abdulkareem Ajenifuja believes that the success of the new generation artists can be traced to sacrifices made by veteran acts like himself.
He went on to say that celebrities like Don Jazzy, amongst others, only made money because of their efforts.
“Without the old artists, the new artists won’t make money, because we fought for the life that they are living right now.
“We put food on their table because of what we fought for, and we are very happy, and that’s why we are legends, you understand. But if anyone of them tries to disrespect, we will put them back to where they belong.
“All of them, from Don Jazzy and all of them, they lived in London, how come the British government never gave them the opportunity, they had to come to Nigeria because we made it happen,” he said.
In some sense, this could be seen as true but is there more to this continuous mention of Don Jazzy’s name?
We will just sit back and wait for whatever follows this.
