The new album as disclosed, will address topical issues in Nigeria like the Kaduna killings, corruption in Nigeria, and terrorism. The singer said the album comprises of thought-provoking songs covering different topical issues and commentaries on the problems bedeviling the country.
Artists like Sound Sultan, Rugged Man, African China, Zlatan, Olamide, and Myke Pam are featured in the album.
Explaining the inspiration behind the album, the rapper said, “Nothing But The Truth is vintage Eedris Abdulkareem and promises to set the records straight and right the lyrical wrongs in the Nigerian music industry as a collector’s item. It will be backed with classy videos from Frizzle & Brizzle Visuals.”
The album is said to be slated for release on August 31, and it will be released on Eedris’ label, Lakreem Entertainment Inc.
Back in 2018, Eedris released a single titled ‘Letter To Obasanjo’, where he claimed the ex-president was the “problem of Nigeria”, and has remained at the forefront of fighting societal ills through his music.
