Currently on the hit of social media attacked from Nigerians over his controversial statement that Ghanaian music influence the growth of Nigerian music and also being unfairly to Nigerian artistes that embedded Ghanaian sounds and elements into their music.
Though, in the last few days, the so-called pioneer of Banku Music has drown out conversation between both rival neighborhood countries (Nigeria & Ghana), and had received the epic responses from Nigerians and also invested hilarious insults ever seen in the history of Twitter trolling. Although, Mr Eazi and his PR team has play the wordplay game of criticism nicely by releasing reworked version of his 2016 biggest hit single ” Leg Over ” with Major Lazer featuring duo American rap stars French Montana & Ty Dolla Sign.
In this new joint with Moroccan born, American rapper French Montana could not caught up with the wave of Afrobeat sound, finding it difficult to ride on the beat and instead sounds as though he might be rapping to a totally different track, while Ty Dolla Sign excellently shows his dexterity into the new sound of Afrobeat beat, laced on Major Lazer mix between pop and electronic dance vibe.
The Afrobeat & Danceehall sound is really penetrating very well in the North American, based on the recent success that fellow Nigerian pop singer and Eazi‘s label mate Wizkid has recorded in those region for his ” Come Closer ” hit single featuring American rap star Drake and that Drake‘s 2016 hit single ” One Dance ” featuring Wizkid and Kyla.
Could we say this is truly winning attempt by Mr Eazi to penetrate into new market that fellow Nigerian colleague has recorded success. In Nutshell the choice of the collaboration is very poor or What did you Think?
