Achievement:
In 2004, Abdulkareem released his third album, Jaga Jaga, a Yoruba term for "shambles", declaiming corruption and suffering in Nigeria. The title track was banned from radio by President Olusegun Obasanjo, but continued to be played in nightclubs and spots all over the country, and became a sort of underground Nigerian national anthem. The album cover was by the renowned artist Lemi Ghariokwu, known for creating many album covers for Fela Kuti.

The album's title track addressed Obasanjo's criticisms of "Jaga Jaga": the album also included "Flash Up Unu Lighter", a tribute to Obasanjo's wife, Stella, who died while undergoing surgery in Spain, as well as the victims of the in October 2005.

In The King is Back album of 2007, Eedris chronicled his travails in the hands of Obasanjo's government and industry dealers and concert promoters who blacklisted him for standing up for the truth in "Koleyewon" and other songs.

He followed that up with Unfinished Business in 2010.

He released a sequel to "Jaga Jaga" in January 2012 during the Occupy Nigeria protest against the lifting of fuel subsidies.

He has also performed on tracks by other artists including "Bad Guy Baller" featuring Mode 9 and VTEK, Klever J's "Igborotidaru" Oba Mmega and Cecil's "I am Afrika".

Known as a social crusader and rights activist in Nigeria, noted for using his music to make his voice heard loud and clear, Abdulkareem released his sixth studio album titled Nothing but the Truth in 2020.

The 20 track album takes a swipe at the ever recurring bad governance and social ills in Nigeria.

With a plethora of top Nigerian tmusic acts including Dede Mabiaku, Sound Sultan Ruggedman, Olamide, Myke Pam, Adex Artquake and Jazzman Olofin, the album can be described as a collector's item, with one of the hit tracks "Country Hard" triggering a nationwide social media challenge frenzy on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

In ten years break between his last studio album and Nothing but the Truth in 2020, he released a number of singles that treated divergent topical issues in Nigerian political and social life. He featured artistes like Femi Kuti in the song "Tribute to Fela", Fatai Rolling Dollars in "Wonkere", Vector in "Shekere", DJ Jimmy Jatt in "Onile" and Konga in "Trouble Dey Sleep".

He was seen in a viral radio interview granted by the former G-Unit member and American recording artiste Young Buck, on what transpired between Abdulkareem and 50 Cent and his crew when they were in Nigeria for a four city concert tagged Star Mega Jams attracted fresh attention to him, seen by the establishment as controversial.

His refusal to bow and lay low at the said concert in 2004 helped in engineering the revolution that changed the finances of the country's music industry and its practitioners for the better.

Within the first quarter of 2021, he released a series of songs, with the visuals by Frizzle and Brizzle making a lot of waves including the much awaited "Jaga Jaga Reloaded" featuring Raw Nwanne and Madarocker. He followed this with the crowd pleasing single "Oti Get E" in response to a federal minister's rant about his name being added to the list of the inglorious cabal holding down Nigeria's development in the song "Jaga Jaga Reloaded".

Both of these singles trended on the social media for weeks and form part of the topical issues in many quarters.

Abdulkareem is married to Yetunde and they have children.

In 2000, Abdulkareem was among the personalities voted for by the Nigerian public to carry the Olympic torch in a
