Daddy Showkey, the ace singer, says rapper Eedris Abdulkareem has a “history of beefing international artistes”.


Showkey was weighing into the controversies trailing the recent comments made by Eedris; specifically his altercation with 50 Cent, the US singer, in 2004.

Eedris referenced his confrontation with 50 Cent in a recent interview on the Honest Bunch podcast.

The ‘Jaga Jaga’ hitmaker argued that his action two decades ago represented a “fight against unfair treatment of Nigerian artistes”.


Reacting to the claims during an Instagram live session with Daddy Freeze, Showkey said 50 Cent was not the only international artiste his colleague had an altercation with.

According to him, Eedris earlier had a confrontation with DMX, the late American rapper, during the All-African Games in 2003.

“In COJA, the year 2003, they brought DMX. The same thing Eedris did with 50 Cent is what he did with DMX at Transcorp Hotel,” he said.


“DMX was ready to confront him. I was among the people that pleaded with him”.

Freeze then interrupted him by asking if Eedris has a history of “beefing international artistes”. In his response, Showkey corroborated the interviewer’s question, saying “it is true”.

Eedris has been in the news in the past few days over his controversial commentaries.

He recently engaged in a war of words with Burna Boy and also claimed that Charly Boy is a man who lacks integrity.


Isaac Fayose, brother of Ayodele Fayose, the former governor of Ekiti state, recently described Eedris as “one of the most useless artistes in Nigeria”.

Skiibii and Ice Prince also sarcastically mocked Eedris on Tuesday.
