StarBoy signee, Oluwatosin Oluwole Ajibade popularly known as “Mr Eazi” is no doubt kicking the likes of Reekado Banks, Lil Kesh, Korede Bello, Kiss Daniel, Falz and others aside to fast becoming the rave of moment.
The mechanical engineer graduate is strategically not taking over Nigeria alone, but Africa at large with his addictive style of music. Having gathered much recognition in Ghana, breaking boundaries in Nigeria and opening new doors for himself in other parts of the continent, it’s fair to say, Wizkid was the first man to notice his groundbreaking potentials. The “Holla At Your Boy” crooner was wise and swift enough to hand him a record deal into his Star Boy World Wide record label.
Have you listened to “Skin Tight” featuring Efya?
A song that was released in August 2015 and still receiving accolades from music critics and lovers after a year of its release. I can boast that the song is still aiming at surpassing songs like, “Sho Lee” and “Kukere” that still ring bells in our head, even without playing them.
I can see why, legendary Nigerian music producer, Cobhams Asuquo jumped on it to spice the jam, the refix was undoubtedly lit ?.
“Hollup” is another monster hit that’s always on every club DJ’s playlist. He released the visual of the song, and one can instantly tell, Mr Eazi is aiming for the world with the quality flick. The video got featured on Soundcity TV’s Top 10 Nigeria Countdown.
“Anointing” featuring Africa’s fastest rapper (perhaps best rapper), Sarkodie is another ‘always good-to-go’ jam one can’t help but to put on replay (repeat). A song by upcoming artiste that’s operating at the pro level.
Is Mr Eazi the only new sound we are going to witness in 2016? It seems so!
Lest I forget, the collaboration of Mr Eazi and Lil Kesh on “Sample You” which blew my mind away. Where exactly is Mr. Eazi’s music from?
Eazi has blessed renowned DJs with his sounds, DJ Spinall and DJ Neptune are two living witness who have received a bit of the Eazi fever. I see why Reminisce couldn’t resist but to call on him for some blessings on his “If No Be God” jam that’s housed on “EL-Hadj” album.
Where is Mr Eazi’s music from? With his unique genre of “Banku Music” which is a subset of Afrobeats, characterised by laid back (itis-like), major deliveries in afro-soul, instrumentals which are influenced by Ghanaian and Nigerian Culture, it is fair to tell advise Mr Eazi to keep moving and not to take it easy.
Mr Eazi is undoubtedly the next big thing you have to start noticing.
