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”
