Mr Eazi has landed himself in hot water with the Nigerian Twitter community for the second time this year. Earlier in the year, his suggestion that Nigerian artists had the Ghanaian sound to thank for most of its biggest hits was found problematic far and wide. Yet again, the same topic has come up and this time, Mr Eazi suggested that prior to his coming on the scene, Nigerian artists were not looking to Ghana for inspiration however, today the use of Ghanaian lingo pervades the material we receive from some of our faves.
Nigerians have been quick to take to Twitter to remind Mr Eazi of the days prior to his existence when the likes of Wizkid were creating songs like Azonto, while Runtown who we could argue his shots are directed towards has also come in to let it be known that he’s ready to let the music speak. Is Mr Eazi playing between Nigeria and Ghana a marketing ploy for his upcoming UK Culture Fest? Possibly.
Mr. Eazi is over other Nigerian artists using the Ghanaian sound for quick hits. 😂 pic.twitter.com/z112Rzw2Y0

Wizkid sang "Azonto" and talked about Banku far back in 2011. Guess Mr Eazi was just finishing Secondary school in Ghana then. Ugly Bastard

Mr Eazi is the type of person to sit with Ghanaians seriously trashtalking Nigerians and they'll say "you're not like them" then he'll blush

Your prince of this thing you call Afrobeats is out here guarding a simple drum pattern and a couple of Ghanaian terms like a last castle.
