Mr. Eazi Gives Himself Credit for The Origin of The Term ‘Detty December’


Nigerian singer, songwriter, and entrepreneur Mr Eazi, has given himself Credit for Inventing the term ‘Detty December‘.

Mr. Eazi made the claim in the first episode of the second season of the ‘How Far? with Mr Eazi and Temi Otedola‘ Podcast.

For those who do not know: Detty December is a December in  Nigeria when you lose your home training and party with all your might to make up for the hard work you’ve put in from January till November. It usually involve concerts, vacations, party and nightlife.

In his Words:

If I do say so myself, I invented Detty December. In 2016, I had called my tour the Happy Boy Tour and it was like in December you detty yourself. And I have that song, Detty Yasef. And I was going to have a Concert in Lagos, we made billboard and they ran #Detty December. So like, have fun, get drunk, Detty yourself. But I think it’s grown from that to a mood in december…

His girlfriend Temi Otedola went on to point out that it was more an IJGB (I Just Got Back) Term, but advised him to get it trademarked, and Mr. Eazi’s reply was that he already got it trademarked.

We are almost sure that we have not heard the end of this gist, but time will tell. However, listen to the entire podcast below and share your thoughts in the comments.
