'I Never Saw Myself As An Artiste' - Mr Eazi Reveals Dream Career

Nigerian music star, Mr Eazi’s career is enjoying a meteoric rise at the moment as he has caught the eye on the global scene just like his mentor and friend, Wizkid.

Following his announcement as Apple Music’s latest ‘Up Next’ Artist, the music streaming platform’s emerging artist franchise, Mr. Eazi recently caught up with Julie Adenuga on Beats 1 where he discussed his journey into stardom, his music and much more.

The banku artiste in his chat with Julie, revealed that he never saw himself becoming a singer when he was running entertainment gigs while in the University in Kumasi, Ghana.

He said that he started organising exclusive events during his undergraduate days after being inspired by a friend in Nigeria.
He said, “I started Swagger Entertainment so I had this crew, elite boys, you had to pay to get into the club and people were paying me every semester to be part of my gang. First off, you had to pay like a hundred dollars a semester then you had to always look fly, when we had parties, you had to come and throw money, pop bottles and all.

He said that at this time all he was obsessed with was becoming the biggest show promoter on Ghana and bring the biggest international stars to sell out Stadia.

Funny thing is at the time all this is happening, I used to listen to music obviously but if I ever saw myself as doing music I saw myself as maybe a show promoter. I would think that maybe I would sometime be doing the biggest concert in Ghana but not as the artiste. I was obsessed with Lil Wayne at a point and said I want to be the one to bring Lil Wayne to Ghana, he explained.

As Apple music’s newest ‘Up Next’ artiste, Mr Eazi appeared live on Late Late Show with James Corden on July 26. The streaming service will also promote Mr. Eazi’s songs on its playlists and on the iTunes.
