In 2013 Mr Eazi released his debut 13 track mixtape titled “Ready to blow” and what a wonderful last few years this young man has had. He describes his style of music as being a fusion of “Ghanaian bounces, Ghanaian highlife, Nigerian chord progressions, and Nigerian patterns”. The Afropop musician quickly became a fan favourite on the continent with hit releases like ‘Bankulize’ and ‘Skintight’ and has garnered massive international attention.
His recent mixtape: ‘Accra to Lagos’ released in February of this year reached number 4 on the International billboard chart as a testament to his meteoric rise. His song ‘Skintight’, in particular, has earned him a lot of publicity lately — winning an award for the song at WatsUp TV’s maiden Africa Music Video awards in December last year and just last week the song was used in a Ciroc advert featuring P Diddy. P Diddy shared the advert on his Instagram page on the 8th of April and it has already garnered over 140,000 views! It’s safe to say the sky is Mr Eazi’s platform at this stage as his potential is limitless.
Wizkid, who signed Mr Eazi to his Starboy label last year, in an interview with channel 4 a few days ago talked about how he feels Africa is going to take over the world with its sound and I firmly believe Mr Eazi is one of those musicians who has what it takes to be one of the leaders in achieving this, and doing so in ways few before him have ever attempted. He is constantly churning out new music and is clearly a man on a mission—a mission whose goal is worldwide dominance.
