Falz is the only conscientious Afrobeats musician of his generation – Eedris Abdulkareem

    Eedris Abdulkareem is not interested in collaborating with the majority of today’s artists except Falz

    Eedris Abdulkareem was a trailblazer in the commercialization of Nigerian hip-hop, but he was also a socially conscious musician who utilized his sound to highlight issues in society.

    Eedris Abdulkareem said he doesn’t like working with most current generation artists because they aren’t conscious enough in an interview with the Honest Bunch Podcast.

    Falz is the only aware artist of his generation, according to the seasoned rapper, and the only one he would be interested in collaborating with.

    The remarks made by Eedris Abdulkareem align with his position as a socially conscious musician who uses his music to raise awareness of social injustices. When Eedris Abdulkareem was at the top of his game in the 2000s, he released singles like “Mr. Lecturer,” which raised awareness of the problem of sexual assault in Nigerian colleges. According to Eedris, the 2002 song was motivated by an undergraduate student at Unilag.

    He and President Obasanjo had a falling out in 2004 over his hit song “Jaga Jaga,” which called out the ruling class of Nigera for the country’s socioeconomic inequity.

    Due to his activism and strong sense of justice, Eedris Abdulkareem got into an altercation with American rapper 50 Cent in 2004 when the rapper requested him to leave the business class of an aircraft.

    Falz has demonstrated his commitment to social justice by bringing attention to a variety of national problems through his songs. His record ‘Moral Instruction’ is replete with didactic teachings that appeal to the national spirit.
    Falz played a significant role in the 2020 End Sarz demonstration against corruption and police brutality.
