He recently had his say on his social media, and Nigerians have been reacting.
Recall in 2017, the Legendary Nigerian singer said Timaya wouldn’t have been successful if not for the confidence he gave him which helped shaped up his career.
Timaya later responded to Eedris in a video, where he called him an idiot and a dirty Igbo smoker.
Reacting years later after Nigerians brought up the matter, Eedris wrote, “An ingrate is an ingrate.”
