Singer Mr Eazi has said he saw himself more as a show promoter and not an artiste while he was at the University.
He made this known during a special interview with Julie Adenuga to mark his feature as Apple Music’s ‘Up Next’ artiste for July.
The ‘skin tight’ singer said he told Wizkid to make him an offer when they first met.
He said, “When I first met him, he just asked me what I wanted and I’m like ‘give me an offer‘ and he said ‘I’m not going to give you an offer‘.
“He said ‘tell me exactly what you want‘ and I said ‘I don’t want any money from you‘ and he replied saying, ‘What do you want‘. And I’m like ‘I want us to work together as a family ‘.
“And that is what it is [till today]. I’m operating how I like and putting out music whenever I like. It’s a sweet thing.”
He also revealed that he has recorded about twelve songs with Diplo, an American record producer/artiste.
He described his music as a fusion of different genres but still with the African flavour.
