Nigerian music sensation Mr. Eazi who is considered as the pioneer of Banku Music, premieres London Town and Overload from his upcoming EP Life is Eazi, Vol. 2 – Lagos to London. And he has featured trending singers Slimcase and Mr Real.
Nigerian born Mr Eazi has been giving fans a sneak peek of the track during his Happy Boy tour and is already shutting down sets across Europe, guardian Life reports.
London Town will be ringing off from Lagos to London. Whilst Overload is set to have the streets and dance-floors across the world on lock this summer.
Overload features the Lagos based hip-hop and RnB Artist behind the street anthem Legbegbe, Mr. Real and Slimcase, the official Shaku shaku master.
Eazi, Mr Real and Slimcase have collectively worked together to layer their bars, creating a tag team between each other – the result; a song you can’t help but put on repeat.
Following the international success of Pour Me Water Mr. Eazi reunites with beat master E-kelly on this track. Overload features a rhythmic beat that adopts the dark Southern African drum pattern mixed with the warm bounce of original Nigerian melodies.
Production duo Da Beatfreakz provide a hard beat that features a heavyweight verse from Giggs and sees Mr. Eazi switch his style from laidback melodies to hard flows with back to back bars. This switch perfectly echoes the culture shifts from Lagos to London.
These singles, his first release since signing a label licensing deal recently with Universal Music Group Africa, are influenced by the close trans-Atlantic relationship between Lagos and London with London Town capturing the essence of London from a Nigerian’s perspective whilst Overload captures the essence of Nigerians in London and the journey to get there.
The trio of Mr Eazi, Slimcase and Mr Real will be performing at the One Africa Music Festival.
