The planned kidney transplant of Eedris Abdulkareem, the Nigerian rapper, has been rescheduled to an undisclosed date.


The music star was recently diagnosed with kidney failure and has been undergoing dialysis.

TheCable Lifestyle earlier reported that Yetunde, the wife of the rapper, will be his kidney donor.

The transplant was originally billed for Wednesday.


But in a statement via his Instagram page on Thursday, the rapper said the surgery will now take place at a yet to be disclosed date.

In the statement signed by Myke Pam, his associate, Abdulkareem said the postponement was based on doctors’ directive.

“In furtherance to our earlier report on the health challenges of the Nigerian Hip Hop Czar Eedris Abdulkareem, and our promise and commitment to keep you updated as we move along with the process, the management of Lakreem Entertainment on behalf of the Abdulkareem family, hereby reports that the scheduled kidney transplant surgery which was tentatively slated for the July 27 (yesterday), have been moved forward by the doctors,” it reads.


“Eedris who is still in high spirits and making a few cameo appearances as an artiste, is religiously undergoing the prescribed 3 times weekly dialysis, while abiding by all the doctor’s directives and required lifestyle changes.

“As we await the substantive surgery date, which may take place any moment from now as all arrangements have been made, we wish to also use this opportunity to thank and appreciate everyone for your massive outpouring of prayers, love, care, affection and support.”

The rapper appreciated his friends and well-wishers who have supported him so far and called for more prayers from them.

“The show of love and support from both home and abroad have been quite amazing and truly overwhelming. Most importantly, it means the world to the ailing Eedris, as it undoubtedly represents the required tonic that is most helpful in propelling him to fight and win this battle,” it added.


“In conclusion, we humbly implore that the prayers and solidarity continues until we cross this crooked bridge of obstruction with solid faith in God and verifiable medical science. May God continue to bless and abide with us all.”
