‘Nigerian artists treated like rats before Eedris Abdulkareem, 50 Cent brawl’ – Soberekon

Popular music executive Soso Soberekon has claimed that Eedris Abdulkareem’s altercation with American rapper 50 Cent and his crew in 2004 “helped” improve the welfare of Nigerian artists.

Pmnews.ng reports that Eedris Abdulkareem has been under heavy fire for saying he fought for the Nigerian music industry and paved the way for Wizkid, Burna Boy, Davido, and other new-generation artists.

Reacting in a recent interview with Daddy Freeze, music executive Soberekon admitted that before Abdulkareem confronted 50 Cent’s crew over discriminatory treatment, Nigerian artists were “treated like rats.”

Soberekon said: “What happened between Eedris and 50 Cent helped the industry, but he did it in a wrong way. Before then, Nigerian musicians were treated like rats.”
