Over N2.9 million raised as doctors move surgery date
A group of friends and supporters of the rapper and his family created a GoFundMe page to raise funds for his surgery and fees associated with the kidney transplant.
However, in a post via Eedris' Instagram page, it was announced that the surgery, which was scheduled for July 27, had been moved forward by the doctors, and no substantive surgery date had been fixed yet.
At the time of the report, the sum of N2.9 million (£5,742) had been raised on the GoFundMe page, even though it was stated on the page that he would need a sum of N24 million (£48,000) for all the medical fees for the surgery.
