The EmPawa Africa Originator, Mr Eazi has unleashed his long-awaiting EP project tagged “Something Else”.
There’s a whole lot of music that falls into the dream these days, but few tracks hit the emotional punch lines. There is a small group at the top who have a stunning capacity to delve into the motivations of their fictional creations in immersive detail, however, the vast majority are merely small portion of them retelling their own daily ups and downs in a more dramatic tone and Mr Eazi is one of them.
Mr Eazi’s new singles from his EP project tagged “Something Else” which comprised of 5 tracks from his forthcoming album “Life is Eazi Vol 3”, which we are all expecting soon, truly defines and re – introduced African music and at the same time put it on a world map once again.
Mr Eazi, named Oluwatosin Oluwole Ajibade at birth, is popular for putting African music, especially West African hits, on the world map. His songs are usually a representation of two distinctive countries and cultures and are well-loved for their R&B and Afro-beat sounds.
Mr Eazi is best known as the originator of Banku music, a mixture of percolating rhythms and Ghanaian Pidgin English while his music is generally appreciated for fitting into West African pop, hip-hop, highlife, as well as Afrobeats.
He have this week returned with the Saudi Arabia,The Don, Love For You, Cherry Ft. Xenia Manasseh and E be Mad.
This EP project consists of 5 good tracks, with the features with Xenia Manasseh only on the last track.
And while it’s an absolute delight on the eardrums, the story behind the track is what first attracted me to it. Telling the story of a loved one in Saudi Arabia track “I go cherish you, I go treasure you, Everyday I go pamper you, Likey gold and silver wey I find, Likey gold and silver wey I find, oh For Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia, oh-oh, For Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia, oh-oh (Eh) “ and looking at the emotional impact love have (both for the individual and for those around them), the deeply personal and honest lyrics are perfectly matched sound, filled with hushed keys, and aching strings. ‘Saudi Arabia’ is simply wonderful, a sincere single which musically reminds me of finding a real love amid pandemic and global uncertainties in the oil land.
Yes! It’s that good.
