Early this week, Capital Xtra UK released an interview with Mr Eazi where the Banku singer spoke about his incredible rise to stardom, working with Wizkid and more.
During the 33 minutes long interview, Mr Eazi subbed Nigerian artistes for overusing Ghanaian elements stating that it is his formula.

‘If you want to count like five afrobeat, it’s like everybody just realized that ‘yo what formula is Mr Eazi using?’ Ok we’re gonna end up doing it. December last year almost 60% of Nigerian artiste were in Ghana playing shows. Now everybody is using words like Banku, Shitor, Mami, Odoo, Sika. My guy, how come? How do you know Odoo? How do you know Sika? How do you know Maami? From where, what’s the connection? It’s just like an American artist just rapping about something in the UK, and you know he has no knowledge of it.’
One of the many people who has reacted to Mr Eazi’s claim is fellow singer Runtown who has also recorded huge career success by embracing the Ghanaian sound. Responding to the situation, the singer tweeted ‘Bout to drop that new sound again and please don’t get mad when i finish what you think you started.

Recall that in January 2017, Mr Eazi faced major backlash from Nigerians for tweeting that present day Nigerian music is greatly influenced by Ghanaian music and as it is, the singer is bent on getting his points across.
