How I Stormed Airport With 3,000 Bikes To Save Eedris Abdulkareem From 50 Cent – Charly Boy Reveals

Veteran Nigerian singer Charly Boy has opened up on how he saved singer, Eedris Abdulkareem when he clashes with American rapper 50 Cent in 2004.

Charly Boy made the disclosure on the recent episode of The Honest Bunch Podcast that he was styling his hair when a call came through from Eedris reporting that he was being beaten by 50 Cent’s bodyguard.

He stated that he stopped what he was doing and mobilized 3,000 bike men to the Murtala Muhammed Airport, where Abdulkareem was to attend to the issue.

He said:

“Back then, if I was walking past the motorcycle park and I waved my hand, all the motorcyclists would follow me. So, I stormed the airport with almost 3000 bikes.”

“On getting to the airport, I asked Eedris to tell me what happened and he said he was booked for a show alongside 50 Cent and he went to sit in the first class in the plane where the rapper was and his bouncers asked him to leave that the first class space wasn’t for Nigerian artists but he refused, then they beat him up.

“They also beat his bouncer who tried to rescue him from them. 50 Cent was aware of what happened. After Eedris narrated his ordeal, I asked where 50 Cent was and they pointed to an SUV. So I went into the SUV to confront him.

“Already, 50 Cent’s security team was seeing the tension around the airport with the bike men moving around. I was also very high that day. I said to 50 Cent, ‘You are the one beating my people in their own country? You came to Nigeria and you are beating my people.”
