One of the most current musical sensation in Africa is Mr Eazi the Nigerian artist who is based in Ghana. The artist has served the continent with good music within the short time he has gained world recognition.
But unknown to many, Mr Eazi dumped a $6000 monthly salary job to pursue music. And that is what I call determination.
The “Leg Over” hit maker who admitted he is in a serious relationship with Temi Otedola, daughter of billionaire, Femi Otedola revealed his family hated him when he quitted his oil and gas paying Job in Nigeria with that six thousand dollars salary.
In an interview with Beat FM, Mr Eazi said
“After I came back from Ghana, I got a job in oil and gas in Port Harcourt that paid about six thousand dollars per month but I quit because I was not finding fulfillment in it. I mean it was the same thing every day, the same routine over and over again”
“The decision to quit the job finally hit me when my boss’ wife left him even with all the money he had”
‘After I left my job, I got my Masters degree and with all that qualification, I started selling phones in computer village and everyone thought something was wrong with me.”
“Even my mother started praying special prayers for me but my father didn’t add that final voice that would have decided my fate.”
“My break finally came after I got an invite to do two shows in London that made me twelve thousand pounds which I used to shoot two videos. When I told my mother what I did with the money, she stopped talking to me for about three weeks.”
“I had to move in with a friend because even my relatives didn’t want me around but everything finally changed when I went back to London for shows that fetched me really good money”.
