All You Need To Know About The Rift Between Burna Boy And Eedris Abdulkareem

The fight between Burna Boy and Eedris Abdulkareem did not just start today, here is all you need to know about the beginning of the fight.

Eedris Abdulkareem has always been against the notion of Burna Boy claiming no one paved way for him in the Nigerian music industry. And when Burna Boy made a statement in 2020 talking about how great he is, Eedris Abdulkareem replied him saying:

Davido and Wizkid have been there before you. You are not African Giant, Burna Boy you never reach Odogwu. Na Davido be Odogwu, I no know you.

—Eedris Abdulkareem in 2020

Few days ago again, in the Honest Brunch podcast, Eedris Abdulkareem repeat his assertion about Burna Boy by saying:

You hear people like Burna Boy saying nobody paved the way for him. That’s stupid talk.

—Eedris Abdulkareem in 2024

Burna Boy in a now deleted tweet replied:

Eedris is gearing up to release a single to address this rift but before then he said:

Wishing me or any other person dead is truly saddening and very disappointing. Making fun of my health crisis and blaming people that helped to keep me alive is very shameful.
