Burna Boy Saga: Eddy Montana, Tony Tetuila Call Eedris a Liar, Betrayer

Eddy Montana, and Tony Tetuila of the famous ‘The Remedies group’, have spoken out against what they call falsehoods and half-truths in Eedris Abdulkareem’s view of events currently trending in the Nigeria music industry. The Remedies made up of Eddy Remedy, Eedris Abdulkareem and Tony Tetuilla popularised Nigerian mainstream pop music in the late 90s. Recently, Eedris Abdulkareem appeared on the Honest Bunch Podcast where he narrated events that led to the creation, success, and split of The Remedies group.

In an interview with Daddy Freeze on Instagram Live, Eddy Remedy said that contrary to Eedris’ claim about creating The Remedies and recording their break- out hit single ‘Shakomo’, it was Montana who owned the song and featured Eedris Abdulkareem on it. Eddy Remedy shared that he recorded ‘Shakomo’ while still a student in Yaba Tech with the song blowing up in universities across Lagos and the South West. Eddy Remedy further revealed that he was the one who took Eedris to Raypower studio contrary to Eedris’ claim of taking him to Raypower to record ‘Shakomo’.

In the over 40-minute-long interview, Remedy stated that Kenny Ogungbe of Raypower and Kennis Music didn’t discover The Remedies. He revealed that it was Mr. Solomon who discovered the group and it was not until a year later that Raypower and Kenny Ogungbe met the group. Eddy Remedy further shed light on his issues with Kennis Music which he claim was aggravated with the marital dispute he had with Kenny Saint Brown (KSB) who is a sister to Kennis Music label boss Kenny Ogungbe.

Remedy also blamed Eedris’ greed as the reason The Remedies have not been able to make a comeback. According to Montana, he met a potential financier willing to fund the groups comeback project but Eedris was more preoccupied with getting his cut of the funds. Eddy Remedy also addressed Eedris’ tirade at Burna Boy over the Grammy winner’s statement that nobody paved the way for him. According to Eddy Remedy, Eedris Abdulkareem had no right to tackle Burna Boy because he didn’t support anyone but only fought for himself.

He stated that everyone should instead thank Burna Boy for taking Afrobeats to the next level. Also reacting, ‘Ogoro’ crooner, Tony Tetuila, called Eedris a liar over his falsehood about The Remedies . Tetuila stated that contrary to Abdulkareem’s claims, he was the one who founded the Remedies group and featured Eedris on their breakout single ‘Shakomo’. Tetuila further stated that Eedris Abdulkareem’s claim that Eddy was responsible for Tony Tetuila leaving the group was entirely false.

After splitting up from The Remedies, Tony Tetuila would go on to enjoy a successful solo career with the hit single ‘My Car’ rocketting him to success. Eedris Abdulkareem also enjoyed massive commercial success courtesy of hit singles like ‘Mr. Lecturer’ and ‘Jaga Jaga’.
