Eedris Abdulkareem had a dig at singer 2face Idibia, who made a recent comment that saw the latter ridicule comments made by the rapper and Black face, a member of the defunct boy band, the Plantashun Boiz.
Blackface was a guest on episode 91 of the Loose Talk Podcast hosted by Pulse Nigeria Editor-in-Chief, Osagie Alonge, who is often joined by company, Ayomide O. Tayo and Steve Dede. On the programme, he shared interesting details of his relationship with Idibia in the past years. He reaffirmed a claim that the singer recorded some of his songs without permission.
The dancehall artiste went on to share a saved conversation they had. In the chat, the accused seemed to be apologizing for lacking courtesy while insisting that he informed the aggrieved before making use of the material.
Abdulkareem offered a more intense support to Blackface in an interview published by Punch News. He was seen to be appealing to the singer to offer assistance to the neglected music star based on his apparent competence when it concerns providing aid to people.
Tuface is the definition of his name. He is a very fake person but you would think he is a good person
“Life is not about competition but about doing the right thing when God gives you the power to do it. My problem with Tuface is this, if he tells you good morning, go and check the time.
“It was the same Tuface that took Nigerians on a ride; he told them that we should protest, he made so much noise but we all know how that ended.
“He knows exactly who sent him to do that and after everything, he backed out. So his name is Tuface but he should not call himself Tubaba, he should remain Tuface.
“Eddie Montana and Tony Tetuila are my brothers. We all started together as Remedies, so we have a story to talk about.
“Plantashun Boiz and Remedies are a family, we all started together, we went on tours together and there are a lot of things that I saw which prompted me to do the song, Wackawickee MCs.
“The song was talking about my experience during the Rothman’s groove tour with the Plantashun Boiz. Whether you like it or not, we all have a history together and I saw everything that happened.
I came back to sing the song. In the song, I said that Tuface was the Plantashun while the rest are the Boiz but he should not let it get to his head.
“Today, God has blessed him but he is still competing with the guy that wrote most of his hit songs. Why isn’t he helping him and forget about the past? Is that what life is all about?
“The world will know about this in the songs that I will drop very soon. The only way he can become Tubaba is for him to become a good person and he should stop lying to Nigerians.
“He should go back to Blackface, show him love and forget about competition. That is what I am talking about.
“Besides that, I have no problem with Tuface. I am showing Tony and Eddie love the same way they show me love. I took Tuface to Kenny Ogungbe, he is a stupid boy. He should get it straight to his head, it is not about now. Nobody is competing with anybody. He should get his acts together. Also, we are different from each other, I am a responsible man.
“Even if he is a married man now, don’t forget he still has about seven ‘wives,’ so when he is talking, he should watch his mouth because we are different people. Tuface should understand that it is not about competition but speak the truth.
“I am happy I said all the things that I said because it is very important you know where you are coming from and where you are going to. It is only you that can tell your story.
“They say that it is only when you are dead that people would talk about you, but it is not true. Speak for yourself so that when you are dead, people would not lie against you.
“The point is that Eedris Abdulkareem added value to the lives of Timaya and some other people. Even Tuface himself, I am the one who took him to Baba Keke for him to sign him under Kennis Music. You can ask Baba Keke.
“I am saying this because it is important that people know what is happening, so, you don’t need to start making unnecessary noise. We all make different choices in our lives and the choice I made is that I don’t want to kiss anybody’s ass to make money.
“I want to speak my mind and say what I have to say. I knew that after saying those things, they would not love or appreciate me but I decided to work hard and be successful. I don’t need to make billions, I just want to be comfortable and live a beautiful life, which is what I am doing and I am happy about it.
“I love my life and I am happy that they are all talking, this would make them wake up and start adding values to their songs and the people who buy their songs.
“We live in a very sad reality but I would keep on talking. Call me whatever you want to call me but I know that I have added value to the lives of people around me.
“I thank God that one of my boys, Rafioso, has already spoken; so I don’t need to talk to these people again. The most important thing is for Nigerians to know all these things. I am happy I have made my point,” Abdulkareem ended a long address concerning attributed to him and his dealings with other musicians.

This however seemed like cheap talk to the likes of Timaya who was angered by his earlier comments criticizing Idibia for not helping Blackface. The rebranded artiste slammed the ‘Jagajaga’ singer who he thinks should have had a better influence on him being in a position of influence but reportedly never did.
He insisted that Abdulkareem does not have the moral right to preach concerning artistes helping each other in a time of need as he was not able to do the same for him.
