Former members of pioneering hip-hop band, ‘Remedies’ performed together as a group for the first time in many years at Jimmy’s Jump Off on the eve of Nigeria’s 53rd independence anniversary.
In what turned out to be one of the highlights of the event hosted by DJ Jimmy JATT on Monday, September 30, at GET Arena, Eedris Abdulkareem and Eddy Montana who rested their music band (which had earlier included Tony Tetuila) about a decade ago to pursue successful solo careers came on stage and surprised the fans.
Eedris who had earlier mounted the stage to perform his latest single ‘I go Wooz You’ was suddenly joined by Eddy Montana to perform their award-winning hit, ‘Shakomo’.
As a band, Remedies scored massive hits in the 90s with their debut album which included tracks ‘Belinda’, ‘Shakomo’ and ‘Judile’ before the group was disbanded. Tony Tetuila was the first to leave the group under resentful circumstances which later spurred a verbal animosity between him and the remaining group members.
Eedris told NET recently that the former band members are working on a comeback.
