Popular Afrobeat artist Mr. Eazi, over the weekend, performed to thousands of London fans at the inaugural ‘Life is Eazi’ Culture Festival. 

Described as an “immersive, festival-inspired one day exposé designed to draw back the curtain on the lifestyle and culture which brought forth Afrobeats”, the event was held at the RoundHouse (Chalk Farm Road -London), and also saw a number of high-profile colleagues as Becca, Wande Coal, Juls, DJ Spinall, DJ Edu, Eugi, Fuse ODG, and a host of others mount the stage in sterling supporting performances.

Mr Eazi has constantly reiterated the place of London in his journey. This was therefore a great opportunity to one of the cities that have catapulted him to global prominence.

Born Oluwatosin Oluwole Ajibade in Nigeria, Mr Eazi’s sound is a fusion of “Ghanaian bounces, Ghanaian highlife, Nigerian chord progressions, and Nigerian patterns”.

He is author of two mixtapes: About to Blow (2013), and Life Is Eazi, Vol. 1 – Accra To Lagos (2017). He’s also credited with pioneering Banku music, a sound “characterized by percolating rhythms and laid-back vocal delivered in Ghanaian Pidgin English”
