Oluwatosin Oluwole Ajibade better known by his stage name Mr Eazi was born on 19 July, 1991 in Port Harcourt, Nigerian. He is a singer, songwriter, and entrepreneur. He best known for his distinct R&B-influenced Afro-beat sound and his 2015 global hit single ‘Skin tight’.
Mr. Eazi grew up in Lagos. After high school, he relocated to Kumasi, Ghana, to study at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology. There he began booking artists to perform at college parties. He later abandoned his event business after an event he organized failed because an artiste refuses to show up.
From then on he decided to pursue his music career. He showed interest in music after recording a guest verse on “My Life”, a song that became a popular record at KNUST. Mr Eazi then realized that his future was in music after he got the opportunity to record for free in the PeeWee and KluMonsta’s studio. It was there that he recorded his first single titled ‘Pipi Dance’.
In the same studio, called ‘About To Blow’ he continued to record a mixtape. This Mixtape was produced mostly by KluMonsta. One official single, ‘Bankulize’ featuring Pappy Kojo, was produced by UK based DJ Juls. ‘Bankulize’ earned Mr. Eazi lots of credits and created opportunities for him to work with bigger artists such as Sarkodie, Efya etc. In 2015, his track “Skin tight” featuring EFYA which had over one million views on YouTube gained him global recognition.
He inked a record deal with Wizkid’s Starboy Entertainment in May 2016. On 10th February 2017, he dropped his second mixtape “Accra to Lagos” which debuted at No 4 on the Billboard World album chart.
