Eedris Turayo Abdulkareem Ajenifuja was born in Kano, northern Nigeria, to Yoruba parents from south-western Nigeria. His mother left the family home in Lagos while heavily pregnant due to her husband taking another wife. Eedris discovered rap music while he was a student at the Army Day Secondary school and has been writing songs ever since. He came to public attention as part of The Remedies, together with Tony Tetuila and Eddy Montana. The group broke up acrimoniously, with the members taking up solo careers. His debut solo album Pass was released in 2002, followed in the same year by Mr.

Lecturer. The title track Mr. Lecturer - about sexual harassment in universities - was a hit in Nigeria and generated plenty of controversy. Eedris's next album Jaga Jaga (2004) was even more controversial. The song Jaga Jaga, bemoaning the corruption and suffering in Nigeria and referring to the suspected political assasination of the country's Attorney General, was banned from state radio and television by president Olusegun Obasanjo.

The president also made a speech insulting Eedris's parentage on national television. His most recent album, Letter to Mr. President (2005), contains one song responding to Obasanjo's outburst and another in tribute to the president's wife Stella, who had died during cosmetic surgery in October that year.
