I was shocked that my wife donated her kidney – Eedris Abdulkareem
Nigerian rapper Eedris Abdulkareem, has said he was shocked when his wife, Yetunde, offered to donate her kidney when he fell ill.
He said that she made the offer during one of their consultations at the hospital after he was diagnosed with kidney failure.
Speaking in an interview on TVC’s Entertainment Splash, Eedris recounted his battle with kidney failure for years and noted that he asked the doctor if the hospital could source for the kidney, but he was informed it had to be a family member.
The musician who dedicated a song to his wife titled, ‘Thank You’, also said that even before she gave her kidney to him, he had always known that she could do anything for him.
He said during a chat with The Punch; “I had always known that she could do anything for me; just like she knows that I can do anything for her. It has always been that way with us.”
Abdulkareem further said he had earlier on released a song to appreciate his Yetunde.
He said;“There are a lot of ways I have been showing my jewel of inestimable value my unalloyed appreciation for what she has done for me, and I will never get tired of doing that. She is the most awesome person alive.
She is actually my Siamese twin and our bond is unbreakable. Making a special song for her is one of those things I am doing to thank her, though this is not the first song I have dedicated to her ‘royal loveliness’.”
The singer urged people marry for love and not for other reasons, saying; “While coming up in the industry as a young guy, I had the option of marrying for more money and high society connections. But, I refused to be a gold digger and clout chaser, and instead diligently worked and prayed for my own soul mate.
The day I saw her, I knew immediately that I had found my missing rib. My advice to young people out there is that they should marry for love; not any other thing.”
