Nigerian-Ghanaian based Afrobeat singer Oluwatosin Oluwole Ajibade, known professionally as Mr Eazi, has blessed music lovers this year with raving songs.
The Skin Tight singer recently met with Julie Adenuga on Apple Beats 1 radio as he talks big regarding his music career, his collaboration with Eugy and also intended international collabos the likes of Giggs and Rudimental.
When asked about his collaboration with Eugy on the hit track Dance For Me, Eazi said Eugy had been trying to reach out to him for a while;
“Eugy had been trying to reach out to me for a long time and then he came via Juls, Juls has produced a lot of my work. Once the recommendation came from Juls of course, I just had to work on the record… I came to London for the first time in March and we recorded ‘Dance For Me’. We just put it out and it’s been crazy. It’s so funny, sometimes I go to some places and they call me Eugy”
Speaking on where he hails from, here’s his response;
“I was born in ’91, Friday ’91, July 19 in Port Harcourt, Nigeria – a rainy Friday night my mum tells me. In a military hospital. I stayed in Nigeria – I moved from Port Harcourt to Lagos until like end of high school and then my mum ‘shipped’ me over to Ghana.
I wanted to school in Canada to study Aeronautical Engineering, I didn’t know my mum and my sister and the rest of the family were low-key working on getting me admission to Ghana… the fees for Canada was like $16,000 while the fees for Ghana was like $5,900. My dad just – he didn’t want to say that he didn’t want to spend more money – so he was just like “Your mum thinks Ghana is close and there’s family there, just go to Ghana. Next thing I know I’m in Kumasi!”
Mr. Eazi also speaks on his attitude to life;
“I feel like in life… I just follow the vibe, I just move like a nomad and I feel like everything will make sense at the end of the day,” he says.
As usual, growth in the music industry means bagging more international collabos and the Rotate crooner is not being left behind;
“I’ve been working with Rudimental, Anne-Marie, a great guy called Riton as well. Today I will be meeting Giggs.
I was really shy the first time with Rudimental… I go on YouTube and the first thing I see is some record with Ed Sheeran and then I’m like, “Oh My God” so when I got to the studio I couldn’t even play my stuff… but the vibe was chill, they ordered food so once I ate I just calmed down.”
Were all anxious to know Mr. Eazi’s next move. Is he granting us an album, an EP or steady hit tracks as usual?. Here’s his response;
“Eazi reveals he will be dropping a remix of ‘Skin tight’ with Wizkid before he has his mixtape out. He talked about getting a lot of DMs on Instagram from A-list artistes who expressed their love for his music and asked if they could jump on a remix of the ‘Skin tight’ hit song, but decided to settle for Wizkid.”
That’s it from Mr. Eazi, we should be expecting a mixtape and Skin Tight remix featuring his boss, Wizkid.
