Here’s everything you missed in entertainment yesterday and others that unraveled while you slept – and are still buzzing this Tuesday morning.
Dear Nigerians, do you still love Mr Eazi?
In Nigeria’s music industry, only two artistes have mastered the art of riling the audience up and Mr Eazi is one of them (the other person is Eedris Abdulkareem).
From his comments about Nigerian music being largely influenced by the Ghanaian sound to claims Nigerian artistes copy his style, it’s safe to say this Nigerian audience is done with Mr Eazi and his “short skirt”.
As there’s hardly a way to measure if his music has been truly boycotted, Mr Eazi is convinced that you Nigerians still have so much love for him.
In an interview with Hip TV, he recounted how the DJ at a concert he recently performed in Benin had all his tracks preloaded. Eazi also notes it’s only the opinion of a few that he has run out of hits.
