Eedris Abdulkareem, the Nigerian rapper, has been diagnosed with kidney failure.
Myke Pam, an associate of the singer, revealed his health condition in a statement via Instagram on Wednesday.
Pam said Abdulkareem has been undergoing dialysis in an undisclosed hospital in Lagos state since his diagnosis.
He said the ailing singer has been put on an appointment for a kidney transplant, adding that the surgery will take place later this month.
He said one of the singer’s family members has volunteered to be the donor.
The associate called on the singer’s fans to pray for him during his “challenging times”.
“Eedris Abdulkareem of ‘Nigeria Jaga Jaga’ fame needs the sincere and unalloyed prayers of all Nigerians and his fans around the world in these hours of his travails,” the statement read in part.
“The Lakreem Entertainment Inc. boss has recently been diagnosed with kidney failure and has been undergoing dialysis since the detection at a reputable hospital here in Lagos, Nigeria.
“The date for the transplant surgery is now fixed for the end of this month of July.
“All arrangements and tests have been concluded, including certifying the compatibility status of the gracious donor (a family member). We shall be updating you as we continue with this life-saving process.”
