Singer talks career, music style on Beats 1 radio interview

The singer is already gearing up for the release of his "Accra to Lagos" 11-track mixtape.

He referred to his brand of songs as the 'Banku Music' which is basically a fusion of many sounds.

Having a particular drum pattern has also played a big part in defining his uniqueness.

According to the singer, every sound of his is a representation of his cool personality.

“I think it’s a mixture of everything, because first on the root of everything, it’s the drum patterns, you know if you listen to all of my records, you could sum it up to one particular drum pattern and that’s the crust of everything and then my ABC nurse rhythm lyrics.

"You know my hooks, I just keep everything chilled and that’s my personality, I bring my personality on the record so I feel like it’s everything, from the melody to the lingo, but at the crust, it’s really those, drums, it’s really the drum pattern."

Eazi, who has had a huge amount of mentoring in both the Ghanaian and Nigerian music sounds attributed his "Ghana to Lagos" mixtape to some of his music experiences in these cities.

He is expected to release the 11-track project on Saturday, February 11, 2017 according to an Instagram post he published a week ago.

“Majorly the music started picking up in Accra, and then it came to London you know and I started recording a lot of music here but then it went to Nigeria, you know Nigeria, once Nigeria found Mr Eazi it was wooooo… not letting me go, so I started spending a lot of time in Lagos, started doing more gigs out there.

"I ended up the year winning like the two most sought after awards by a new artist, did my headline show, and you know I just feel like I had to tell the story of Accra to Lagos, and come back to talk about London.

"So since Accra and Lagos are the top two cities feeling Mr Eazi, let me just give them sounds, let me just take them on a journey, sonically from Accra to Lagos,” he said.

With the anticipated mixtape already grossing over 200,000 in pre-order sales, the singer has gained the sort of attention worthy of the brightest in the game.

The project features high profile artistes such as Falz, Olamide, Phyno, Mugeez R2Bees and many more.
