D’banj “Kokomaster” has refused to throw tantrums at Eedris Abdulkareem, who has tongue-lashed him in a recent video – calling him stupid for leaving Don Jazzy.
Eedris said, “I love him, I love him, you know why I love him, he has a drive. The biggest mistake someone like D’banj made was to leave Don Jazzy, D’banj nor get talent oo, na razzmasta he get, if you go America, them go tell you wetin razzmasta mean. But Don jazzy has the technical back up to make D’banj sound good, I love him for that.”
D’banj, in response, said Eedris insulted people who are young enough to be his children.
- “…I have seen different videos of him talking about different artistes that are young enough to be his kids. I would have thought that if he was such a role model, there were better ways he could pass his message across but I have nothing against him. I have nothing more to say about him. I feel people just have different ways of expressing themselves.”
- He also used the opportunity to talk about his son and what being a father means to him. “Being a father is very humbling. I have always acted as a father to a lot of young artistes from the days of MoHits but now, I have a child of my own. When he was born, I was in the hospital and as I held his hands, it made me realise that to whom much is given, much is expected. This is someone’s life that I am responsible for. It is not just about fatherhood but now I have a family. Before I became a family man, I took decisions without looking back,” he said.
