Yetunde, wife of Jaga Jaga crooner, Eedris Abdulkareem has offered to donate one of her kidneys to her husband, ENigeria Newspaper reports.
Eedris Abdulkareem, a revolutionary rapper, was reportedly diagnosed with kidney disease a few days ago. On Thursday afternoon in Lagos, the singer confirmed the diagnosis in a video captured during one of his dialysis sessions and pleaded for help from well-meaning Nigerians.
Lacream Entertainment Inco, his self-own record label, released a statement on the matter. The 47-year-old was identified as having kidney failure in a respected Lagos hospital, and ever then, he has also been receiving dialysis.
The statement seen by ENigeria Newspaper also pointed out that a date has been fixed for the transplant while tests to confirm compatibility of the donor’s kidney among other preparations are on top gear.
Although the identity was not mentioned except that he/she is a family member, but ENigeria Newspaper has been reliably informed that the family member in question is his no other than his wife, Yetunde.
For standing by her husband in trying times, many Nigerians have hailed the singer’s wife for always showing him support when it matters most.
“Yetunde is that kind of woman you pray for as man. She’s always been there for Eedris, back then when he went exile after being declared wanted by former President Obasanjo and now again, agreeing to go under the knife for her husband is bravery personified”, said, Salome a social media user.
“I can imagine Eedris’ feeling knowing that his wife is volunteering one of her kidneys for him, that alone is enough reason for him to leave”, said another social media user, Samson.
Meanwhile, part of the statement released by Myke Pam on behalf of Eedris Abdulkareem’s label is re-produced below:
“The Nigerian Hip Hop Czar, Social Crusader and Rights Activist, Eedris Abdulkareem of “Nigeria Jaga Jaga” fame needs the sincere and unalloyed prayers of all Nigerians and his fans around the world in this hours of his travails.

Therefore, on behalf of the Abdulkareem family and Lakreem Entertainment Inc., we most sincerely ask for prayers and good wishes for Eedris, as we face this challenging times”.
Eedris Turayo Abdulkareem Ajenifuja, better known by his stage name Eedris Abdulkareem, is a Nigerian rapper, singer, and composer who specializes in hip hop, R&B, and Afrobeat. The Remedies, a disbanded Nigerian hip hop boy band, featured him as their lead rapper.
Eedris Turayo Abdulkareem Ajenifuja was born into a polygamous household in Kano, Nigeria; his parents were originally from Ilesha, Osun State, and Ogun State, both in the country’s south-western region. However, he chose to call Kano State his home state. As time passed, he also lost eight of his older siblings and his father when he was only two years old.
He rose to fame after a confrontation with American rapper 50 Cent at an event hosted by Nigerian Breweries years back. The incident, which involved a physical altercation between the two rappers, resulted in Eedris being blacklisted by major Nigerian brands, but it also marked a turning point for Nigerian artists as local businesses started giving them priority spots at important concerts and events.
