Popular musician, Eedris Abdulkareem has come out to speak about how Charly Boy and Festus Keyamo allegedly sold him out after his backstage and airplane clash with 50 Cent.

Eedris revealed that it is true that he once had a fight with 50 Cent at an event organized by a multinational company when the US rapper insisted that all Nigerian singers should leave the backstage when he stepped in.

According to him, another clash actually occurred with the US rapper in a private jet the multinational company got for them after 50 Cent complained about sharing the jet with Nigerian artistes.

He added that it was, however, sad to find out that Charly Boy took cash from the multinational company to blacklist him and spread fake information after the fight.

He also accused Festus Keyamo of being a being a fake activist who shuts up after taking money.
