Former member of Remedies, Eedris Abdulkareem, is back. The rapper has just released three new singles. The first of the new songs is Fela. The song, a fast tempo rap with a lot of saxophone and horns, hit you hard. It is a bitter reality track dedicated to the late Abami Eda, with lyrics citing some still relevant issues in the society which Fela talked about. Afrobeat star, Femi Anikulapo-Kuti was featured in the song.
The second track, Shekere, features rap star, Vector, and Midi of Jukebox. It is a party track which is laced with flow like the Waka Wiki MC that Eedris is known for. While the third track, New Edo, is more of a project song in reference to Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, governor of Edo State.
All the songs already released are enjoying more downloads online. Fela and Shekere were produced by Soso Beat, while New Edo is produced by Nasty Bit.
Eedris has been off and on the music scene. He told P.M.NEWS Showbiz Trends a couple of months ago that he was in the studio working hard on some songs that will re-establish his presence on the Nigerian hip-hop scene.
