The new EP ‘ Something Else’ inspired by Kel P and Killertunes,” Mr Eazi tells Apple Music—the producers “who kept coming to meet me in Accra until I finally started recording”. A dramatic opener, “The Don” fuses operatic flair and Afro-trap for a relaxed invitation into his kingdom. Stream here: Mr Eazi – Something Else – EP (lnk.to)
“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”).
Mr Eazi is on a constant high to please his fans. He is reportedly working on his third album Life is Eazi, Vol 3 in Ghana and we can’t wait to see what else “The Don” has to offer.
