“Leg Over” singer, Mr Eazi has hailed the Nigerian music community for appreciating his “Ghanaian sound” – according to him, most of the top Afrobeats and African songs are all on the merger of Ghana and Nigerian sounds, a sound that he is the pioneer of.
Mr Eazi, the pioneer of Banku Music – a fusion sound he describes as a blend of “Ghanaian bounces, Ghanaian highlife, Nigerian chord progressions, and Nigerian patterns” – made this known when he was a guest on Capital Xtra‘s Reggae Recipe.
“The speed at which I’ve moved is scary to me…cause it took my contemporaries 5, 6 years,”
“And that is what has been this year, if you want to count like 5 afrobeat, it’s like everybody just realized that ‘yo what formula is Mr Eazi using?’ Ok we’re gonna end up doing it”.
“December last year almost 60% of Nigerian artiste were in Ghana”
