Mr Eazi has come under fire for his statement about the influence of Ghanaian music on Nigerian music.
And Nigerian Twitter explodes, feeling betrayed by the singer, for having the opinion that the statement was undermining Nigerian music creatives.
Industry pundits such as DJ Spinall who had a hit song ‘Ohema’ with Mr eazi in 2016 went in on him subbed him writing “A fuck boy’s true colour will always show off sooner or later.”
Ghanaian Hip-Hop/Afro-Pop artiste Ko-Jo Cue sees otherwise however, says both Ghanaians and Nigerians should be happy they are complementing each other musically.
Pulse Head of Music, Joey Akan feels Mr Eazi was insensitive to Nigerians for making that statement and should have kept his opinion to himself knowing the rivalry seemingly existing between the two countries’ music industry.
Mr Eazi made his breakthrough into the Nigerian music scene in 2016 with the song ‘Skin tight’ and continued to woo Nigerian music lovers with wavy songs back to back, many of which were as a result of the stellar production of Ghanaian DJ/producer Juls.
Eazi’s music influence continued to permeate throughout the Nigerian airwaves so much it could not be ignored, with a number of Nigerian artists collaborating with him on their projects. The singer’s effort was eventually crowned in December 2016, winning the Headies Next Rated award and Soundcity MVP award for Best New Artist.
What are your thoughts guys? Are Nigerians over-reacting to the ‘Skin tight’ singer’s statement or not?
