Veteran Rapper, Idris Abdulkarim has declared operation “sanity and respect” in the Nigeria entertainment industry, when he aggressively and openly called out young artists and warns that the disrespect for veterans and captains of entertainment brands is enough.
The rapper said this while granting the PlanetTV crew an interview at his Alimosho studio.
In his anger, the rapper used foul languages to express his concerns.
The “Oko-Ashawo” master said that he gets mails from fans requesting a remake of his popular hit “Nigeria Jaga Jaga“, a song he said discredited him from shows and events and made him one of Nigeria’s notorious.
“I lived my life for it, I was not called for events because I sang Nigeria Jaga Jaga”.
Among other issues discussed, Idris recalls that he and other veterans like Tuface, (who preferred to be called TuBaba) Eddie Remedy, Plantation boiz and few other artists revolutionized the industry and laid the foundation, upon which the new generation artists are trading.
“Did the British Government gave y’all an opportunity to make that money, we made it all happen before y’all came back home to make money, so show some mother f***king respect f*****ls”
In pigeon language (Nigera’s common tongue) “We are watching, and you often see us on the streets.
“Let me see anyone of you disrespect Dele Momodu, Baba Keke, Ayo Animashaun or Kwame“
Referring to Davido who recently called Dele Momodu (Ovation Boss) his boy over a baby mama rift with Dele’s niece
Idris also gave hit to Tubaba on various counts: for attempting a national protest against the President Buhari led administration, for abandoning Black Face without care and for disrespecting Daddy Showky
“You should have written a song, don’t take Nigerians for a ride, you don forget say what you do basically is love songs, dey impregnate people dey go!…”
To cool off his attack, he added: “You be my friend now, me and you know as e dey go!”
