Starboy Records Artiste and Nigerian music sensation Mr Eazi became the first African artiste to have his song premiered on Zane Lowe’s World Record show on Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio.
The song, titled ‘In The Morning’ featuring Big Lean is a prelude to Mr. Eazi’s 11-track mixtape ‘Life Is Eazi – Accra to Lagos‘ which will be released on February 11, 2017.
It looks like Mr Eazi is carrying over from the successes of the final months of last year where he completely sold out his first ever Nigerian concert, as well as winning the prestigious Next Rated Act at the 2016 Headies, and Best New Artiste of the Year at the Inaugural Soundcity MVP Awards 2016.
The Accra to Lagos mixtape would surface the root sounds, dialects, energy and styles from the two cities which largely influence Mr. Eazi’s music, Accra and Lagos. It will be a journey as Eazi takes the listener from one city to the next beginning with five tracks reflecting the Ghanaian capital, and eventually ending up with five destination tracks from Lagos – all of these on either side of one “border” track which combines elements from both cities’.
The mixtape will feature inputs from producers and prominent artistes like Masterkraft, Legendary Beatz, Del B, Maleek Berry, D-tunes, Wizkid, Olamide, Medikal, Mugeez R2beez, E Kelly and Falz.
