Eedris Abdulkareem, Nigerian rapper, has described Timaya as an “ingrate’ in what appears to be a reigniting of his age-long feud with the reggae dancehall king.


The duo’s face-off started in 2017 when Abdulkareem, in an interview, described the ‘Gra Gra’ crooner as an “ingrate”, claiming he won’t have been successful if not for his support

But the ‘Dem Mama’ singer had fired back at the time, accusing the rapper of using his services without paying him in return.

He also alleged that the ‘Jaja Jaga’ singer “regarded him like a nobody,” adding that the musician should work on himself and stop blaming people.


“I tried so hard to resist responding to an empty barrel..But I am sick and tired of all these misconceptions… Sometimes you just need to tell people the hard truth. F**k you Eedris Abdulkarim,” he had said.

“I was your backup artist and you did not appreciate me. You regarded me like a nobody, I paid my transport to your shows because I was learning. You have never paid me one day. You disregard people, how many people don blow through you”.

“Where are all the people that were with you before? You come on social media, where the f**k are you? Don’t blame people, Go and work. Dirty looking Igbo smoker.”


The drama between them appeared to have died down afterward.

But on Tuesday — about four years after their initial clash — Abdulkareem shared screenshots of some fans who also called out Timaya on his Instagram page.

The comments reflected on his acclaimed contributions to Timaya’s rise into prominence in the music landscape.

He also accompanied the screenshotted comments with a terse note wherein he urged people to simply ignore the ‘Gratitude’ singer.


“An ingrate is an ingrate ignore him,” he wrote.

Timaya has not reacted to the rapper’s comment as of the time of this report.

Abdulkareem was in the news recently over the controversy between him and Festus Keyamo, minister of state for labour and employment.
