Encomium keeps pouring on as popular Nigerian rapper, Eedris Abdulkareem pens an emotional thank you message after successfully undergoing a kidney transplant surgery.
The popular music Icons’ management, Lakreem Entertainment had earlier announced the successful surgery.
Many Nigerians could feel ‘goosebumps’ as the music icon pens an appreciative post to his wife, Yetunde, who donated her kidney to the ‘Mr. Lecturer’ crooner.
“Words cannot express my love, devotion, and commitment to my adorable, loving, supportive and compassionate wife, Yetunde, with whom God Has made my life complete…,” the post read in part.
Nigerians have since joined him in thanking his wife while others gave him pieces of advice on how to keep fit.
See how Nigerians reacted:

Eedris Abdulkareem 's wife donating her kidney to her husband is arguably one of the most priceless expressions & demonstrations of love. For those who don't believe in love, marriage, humanity & family, there's no better way to describe it other than this.

The wife of Eedris Abdulkareem donated one of her kidneys to save the life of her husband. May you meet a woman/man so selfless as she is that can donate even part of the human organ to save your life.
Na woman be dat, the most amazing thing to read today.

Eedris Abdulkareem has undergone a successful surgery, courtesy of his wife who donated one of her kidneys. She has raised the bar & I hope he respects her. That said, he should stay away from alcohol & drink enough water daily.
