A few weeks after he was criticised for pummelling Jaywon, his colleague under the Kennis Music label, rap music star, Eedris Abdulkareem has sparked a new controversy after he publicly criticised and abused D’banj at the Occupy Nigeria rally at Ojota, Lagos.

D'banj

The controversial rap star, when called to address the crowd at the rally against the removal of fuel subsidy, criticised his colleagues that campaigned for President Goodluck Jonathan before the April 2011 election, calling them unprintable names.

The Nigeria Jagajaga crooner lamented that he is disappointed that some of his colleagues could descend so low to the extent of collecting money from corrupt politicians to campaign for them.

The height of his criticism was when said “some even dey sing ‘I will vote for Goodluck Jona…’ God will punish all of them.” He was referring to the special remix of D’banj’s Scape Goat that was used to campaign for President Jonathan.

Meanwhile, Eedris’ confrontational criticism of D’banj and other musicians has sparked controversy in the industry and among fans.

D’banj is yet to reply him officially, but sources close to him said he has been informed about the development.

Earlier, the President of Mo’Hits Records, Don Jazzy, had apologised to Nigerians via social network; twitter for campaigning for President Jonathan during last year’s polls.
