Veteran Nigerian rapper, Eedris Abdulkareem, has revealed that his wife, Yetunde, is his kidney donor.
The musician made the revelation at Freedom Vibes 6.0,
a colloquium organized in his honour at Freedom Park, Lagos on Saturday August 13th.
Eedris, 48, said:
“I am shouting to my wife. I’m talking about the first time we went to see our doctor;
the doctor said they don’t encourage kidney harvesting, selling of kidneys and all that,
that the donor has to be a family member, a friend, you know; whether your daughter or your brother or your son, you know”.
“So right there, my wife decided to take all the tests, and from all the tests she took, everything came out positive that she was compatible with me.
So I’m giving God the glory and thank God that I don’t have to wait for one year or two years because I know it’s not easy”.
It is the first time the outspoken singer would confirm the identity of his kidney donor.
Eedris wedded his wife in 2003; they have three children together. Until recently, his wife had managed to maintain a low profile despite being married to a celebrity.
The date of Eedris’ kidney surgery has yet to be revealed, but his management said it would be made public.

Eedris shot to the limelight after being part of the group Remedies. Remedies included Tony Tetuila and Eddy Montana, before they finally went their separate ways, each taking up a solo career.
Eedris released his first solo album, “Pass”, in 2002, which was well-received by music pundits, followed by Mr Lecturer, which mainly focuses on s*xual harassment in Universities.
He dropped another album, “Jaga Jaga”, in 2004, which was even more controversial than his previous ones. The song centred on the corruption and suffering in Nigeria. The song was banned on radio and television stations by the then president, Olusegun Obasanjo.
The rapper has received numerous awards and recognitions due to his immense contribution to the growth and development of the Nigerian entertainment industry.
