Nigerian fashionista and sister to Nigerian most paid blogger, Laura Ikeji, just took to her Instagram page to heap encomiums on rapper, Eedris Abdulkareem, revealing how the ‘Nigerian Jaga Jaga’ crooner made her a decent woman.
Sharing a side by side picture of Eedris and her, she wrote;
If u see this man, help me thank him. Tell him Laura said thank u.
Let me tell u a not so short story. A few years ago, when I was 15 years old, still in secondary school, I was obsessed with Eedris Ahdulkarim, you know the kind of obsession that u talk about him 24/7 yup that was me, everybody in class called me Eedris, so one day I couldn’t take it anymore, I asked Linda to help me beg Emmanuel Ugolee @Emmaugolee who was the god of entertainment tv then to introduce me to him, so Linda got Eedris’ number from Emmanuel and we called Eedris. I wanted to dye!! After speaking with Eedris on the phone arhhhhaarrhhhhhh it was the best day ever! I told everybody in class that I was close to Eedris, so as an obsessed fan, I’d go to the call centre and call him every time and he was polite enough to pick. I finished secondary school and Begged to meet him which he agreed, so my sister Vera and I visited him and that was how Eedris and I became close. Now listen to the real story.
I was young, only 16, naive, new to entertainment, obsessed etc but not for 1 day did Eedris ever ever take advantage of my obsession or naivity. And he made sure that nobody from his crew took advantage of this smallie. He warned them all not to funk with me or they ‘re in trouble.
Eedris took me as a daughter, he mentored me and thought me how to rap. I walked, talked and rapped like Eedris hahahhaa. And when I started mixing with other celebrities, they all wanted to take advantage , they all wanted one thing, well, as per young girl wey just enter industry na, that one na sweet fish. Alot of all the celebrities I came across wanted to take advantage but not Eedris.
This man Eedris, is the reason I can beat my chest and say I never messed with any entertainer during and after my rapping days. He’s one of the reasons I’m a very decent woman till date.

Born and Raised in Uyo. Born as Daniel Joshua on February 2, 1997 in Akwa Ibom, DJ Square was exposed to Deejaying at a young age.
He got attached to the work when someone gifted him a laptop and he fell in love with the ‘Virtual DJ’ app, and then his passion grew when he lost the laptop and after feeling handicapped without the app, agreed with himself that ‘Deejaying’ is just like blood flowing in his vein.
Square had no sort of mentorship or Deejay training, Joshua taught himself all he needed and after hearing him play, I would have swored he had some sought of training.
Currently signed to Fillian Records as Official Deejay to star act, Mo’Brek, Square attended Peculiar Kids Development center at his primary level, Assemblies of God Bethel Seminary Secondary School and currently studying computer Science at Federal Polytechnic Nekede.
DJ Square is one of the most popular DJs In the South Eastern part of Nigeria and a very versatile rapper. His ‘F-word‘ with Mo’Brek is still topping charts.
What else is the definition of ‘Awesomeness’ if not DJ Square?

Now I can write and thousands of people will get entertained but I still have a problem with that…. Only those allowed to see it will, but I wanted more and apart from writing to educate, inform and entertain which is the main reason why I started blogging, I also realised that we have gone digital and so is our businesses..
Most businesses doesn’t need an office to sell but they need a platform(social media) to sell their goods and services and in that way, thousands of people will get to know them and that’s why I decided to introduce “JETIFIED”.
JETIFIED is just my little way of encouraging business owners, entrepreneurs who really know what they are doing but haven’t been heard. I know how it feels when you try to help yourself financially with a business and yet you ain’t being patronized because the right customers don’t know about you.
That is why am giving out 1 month free online promo to young/vibrant businesses out there.. You just have to follow the steps below:
1. Make sure your business has an official social media platforms. That’s a major step.
2. Make a minute video of yourself telling us about your business and the kind of customers you need.
