Artist Background

Zagadat! That one word alone let’s you know that Mr.Eazi is about to kill the track.

Mr.Eazi is a Nigerian artist who just began taking music seriously less than a year ago. In a span of less than two years, he has rose to fame especially after the success from his hit featuring  Efya, “Skin Tight”. Eazi has become known for using his Naija roots and incorporating them with sounds of Highlife from Ghana for his Afrobeat music.

Being that Eazi is one of the biggest rising acts in Africa at the moment, it’s only right that he’s signed to Wizkid’s label Starboy Worldwide. Ghanaian artists such as R2Bees and Efya are also signed to Wizkid’s label which has created a force between Nigerian and Ghanaian music which is what Eazi is all about.

Eazi mentioned in an interview with Highsnobiety that production is key for him when it comes to music. “I do feel that a lot more can be done in collaborations with African producers. I’m an artist who cares more about the producers because they are the core. I would hope to see that more in the future.” Eazi has been taking the initiative of acting upon the change that he hopes to see by collaborating with popular producers such as Juls and DJ Spinall.

Eazi’s versatility as an artist will allow him to reach even higher levels in the music industry as time progresses. As he continues to blow, his work ethic and grind doesn’t stop. He has been touring and selling out shows around North America for his “Detty World” Tour.  His next stop on the tour is Europe; London is the home for some of his biggest supporters and fans.

Eazi is an inspiration for artists who are questioning which direction they want to go in for their career. He went from having a party and promotion business to creating music that people can’t get enough of in the studio. He’s an example of an artist that stayed true to his culture and sound and it worked out in his ultimate favor. This is just the beginning for the superstar in the making.
