Oluwatosin Ajibade (born 19 July 1991),[1] better known by his stage name Mr Eazi, is a Nigerian singer, songwriter, and entrepreneur.[2] He is the pioneer of Banku music, a fusion sound he describes as a mixture of Ghanaian highlife and Nigerian chord progressions and patterns.[3] Mr Eazi relocated to Kumasi in 2008 and enrolled at KNUST, where he began booking artists to perform at college parties.[4] He showed interest in music after recording a guest verse on “My Life”, a song that gained traction and became a popular record at KNUST.[5] Mr Eazi released his debut mixtape About to Blow in July 2013.[6] He gained an international audience following the release of the Efya-assisted single “Skin Tight”.[7] His second mixtape Life Is Eazi, Vol. 1 – Accra To Lagos was released on 10 February 2017.

Mr Eazi released his 13-track debut mixtape About to Blow in July 2013.[6] It produced two singles: “Pipi Dance” and “Bankulize”. The former was released in mid-2012, while the latter was released in 2013.[6] Mr Eazi recorded the mixtape with producer Klu and released it within a week.[4] The Fader magazine descrie mixtape as a “heavily dancehall-leaning SoundCloud playlist”. Prior to releasing the mixtape, Mr Eazi worked with producers such as Magnom, Peeweezle, Nshona, Klumonsta, D’Tunes, and E-Kelly. Moreover, he was featured on Stay Jay’s “Baby Lace” and Lousika’s “Knockout”.[6] In 2014, Mr Eazi relocated to Nigeria. He was contacted by UK-based Ghanaian producer Juls, who got a hold of some of his recordings.[5] Due to not being able to locate the audio files of his old recordings, Mr Eazi’s attempt at working with Juls stalled for a long time.[5] Mr Eazi eventually retrieved his audio files and sent them to Juls, who made a new beat and created the artwork for the mixtape’s second single “Bankulize”.[5] The song features vocals from Ghanaian hiplife artist Pappy Kojo and was released in November 2014.[5] The official remix of “Bankulize” features Burna Boy and was released in September 2016.[10] Mr Eazi premiered the remix on Ebro Darden‘s Beats 1 radio show a month earlier.[11]

In August 2015, Mr Eazi released the dancehall-influenced track “Skin Tight”. It features guest vocals from Ghanaian singer Efya and was produced by DJ Juls.[12] In an interview with Complex magazine, Mr Eazi described the song as a “fusion”.[3] He said he spoke Ghanaian pidgin on the delivery and used Nigerian melodies.[3] In August 2016, Nigerian record producer Cobhams Asuquo released a rendition of the song. DJ Caise released a house remix of the song in September 2016, while Terry G collaborated with Mr Eazi to release a remix of the song.[13][14] In April 2017, “Skin Tight” was featured in an ad for the vodka brand Ciroc.[15] Mr Eazi was featured on Eugy’s 2016 hit single “Dance for Me”. The Guardian newspaper included the song on its list of the 10 biggest African tracks of 2016.[16] The music video for “Dance for Me” was directed by Vertex and Gabriella Kingsely.[17] Robin Murray of Clash magazine described the song as a “salute to their joint Ghanaian heritage”.[17] On 17 June 2016, Mr Eazi released the R&B-inspired “Anointing”, a song that features rap vocals from Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie.[18] Mr Eazi first announced plans for the song in May 2016.
