I formed The Remedies, invited Eedris Abdulkareem to join – Eddy Remedy

Published

Veteran singer and former member of The Remedies, Eddy Remedy has said contrary to his ex-bandmate, Eedris Abdulkareem’s claims, he was the sole founder of the now-defunct band.

Recall that Abdulkareem had in a recent podcast interview claimed that he and Eddy were the original members of The Remedies and only accepted Tony Tetuila into the group out of pity after meeting him at a show in Ilorin, Kwara State.

However, speaking in a recent interview with Daddy Freeze, Eddy Remedy said Tetuila didn’t join the group in Ilorin but in his apartment in Lagos where Abdulkareem brought him to meet him.

He said he invited Abdulkareem to join the group and he came along with Tetuila and he later discovered he collected some money from his parents with the promise of making their son a star.

The veteran singer said because of Abdulkareem’s greed, there were rumours back then that Tetuila’s parents were the ones sponsoring the group whereas he was the sole sponsor of the group.

Remedy said, “That boy (Eedris Abdulkareem) is a greedy boy. He has always been greedy. I formed the group and invited him into the group. The day he was coming, he brought Tony [Tetuila]. I had never met Tony in my life. I just saw a guy limping behind him.

“When they got into my room, I asked him, ‘Who is this man?’ He now introduced Tony that he has been with him all these while. That was when Eedris was supposed to tell me that Tony’s parents have given him some money and he told them that he will take him to wherever he is going. He didn’t tell me that. The rumours first started when we were on tour that Tony’s parents were sponsoring the group. No, they were not sponsoring the group. I had $5,000 that my parents sent to me from America in 1997. They sent me that money to come and meet them but I insisted that I was to stay back in Nigeria to pursue my music career after graduating from Yaba Tech. I used that money to sponsored the group throughout that period.”
