After Mr Eazi released his EP Something Else back in February this year, the project was a reminder of how he’s been singlehandedly amalgamating rhythms between Nigeria and Ghana in the form of Banku. But it also pushed for something more. E Be Mad, a song from the EP, is recognizably Mr Eazi, breezy and saccharine. It’s an ode to long-term relationships reminiscent of vintage Ghanaian highlife sounds.
Mr Eazi has just delivered the visuals of the song, shot in sleepy streets of Ghana. A woman braids another woman’s hair in front of a shop, children play in the streets, and young men casually hang around in a corner. And there’s Mr Eazi, spotting a white tank top with his gaze on a possible love interest. The finals scenes are quite the romantic churn. Will more visuals be released from Something Else? We will just have to wait and see.
