Nigerian Hip Hop Czar, Eedris Abdulkareem, has written an easy to fellow Nigerian Afrobeat singer, Burna Boy, for wishing him a dead.

Eedris took to his social media (Instagram) on Sunday to reply Burna Boy, saying wishing him dead is saddening, adding that he will use the medium he knows how to use best to err his reply.

The Instagram post by Eedris tagged ‘ESSAY TO BURNA BOY’ FOR WISHING ME DEAD, reads:

“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. Threatening my life is a different ball game, but for you to play God? Thats the most nauseating foul prank of all times.

“Now, conscientious Nigerians and the general public are weighing into the matter and you instantly deleted your demonic prayers for me.

“I’ll reply through the only medium that I have…and that is music; so I will be dropping my heartfet response via a single aptly named ‘Essay to Burnaboy’ in a fortnight.

‘Stay tuned for that because
‘No man be GOD’.”

Converseer reports that the problem started when Eedris dissed Burna Boy on The Honest Bunch Podcast, saying, “…you hear someone like Burna Boy say, ‘nobody helped him in Nigeria – that’s stupid talk’.”

The statement by Eedris didn’t go well with Burna Boy who replied by mocking his health.

“Abdul Kareem Abi wetin dem dey call your papa, I no blame you. I blame people wey donate money for your hospital bills. And I wish say you be person wey fit dey enter the kind places wey I dey, make we use mistake jam,” Boy Burna posted on X (formerly Twitter) on Saturday, 17 Feb. 2024 at 4:33 p.m., and later deleted the post after many backlash from Nigerians.
