The ex-Remedies rapper added that his wife, Yetunde, said she did not want to lose her husband because he was a great man, and she was willing to give him one of her organs.

“I remember when doctors said, ‘Your two kidneys are gone, and the best thing you need to do is a transplant’, and right there my wife was like ‘, Can I donate my kidney?’ We didn’t discuss it. She said, "Can I give my husband one of my kidneys? I cannot lose this man; he’s a great man’ I was shocked, and the doctor was like, ‘yes, you can because it has to be a family member, a friend, a brother, a sister, a son or a daughter that will have to donate so we need to find out if you guys are compatible’,” Eedris said.
