Nigerian superstar and Banku Music boss, Mr Eazi has finally dropped his awaited project tagged, “Something Else” EP.
Mr Eazi found himself drawn back to the studio to create 2021’s Something Else. “This project was inspired by Kel P and Killertunes,” he tells Apple Music—the producers “who kept coming to meet me in Accra until I finally started recording”.
“I spent the entire year working on building emPawa Africa and morphing into ‘Don Eazi’ the mogul,” he explains. Yet the entrepreneur and record label founder never strays too far from mentoring and supporting emerging African artists: “Cherry” features Kenya’s Xenia Manasseh, an alumnus of the emPawa talent incubator programme.
There’s classic Eazi here, too, with tender Afrobeats moments that work for club nights and family celebrations (“Love for You”), and an ode to long-term relationships that’s reminiscent of vintage Ghanaian highlife sounds (“E Be Mad”).
