Mr. Eazi, who started as an event organizer in college, recounted a challenging experience when some artists he had booked for an award show couldn’t attend due to financial constraints.
“In my early days as an event organizer at the university, I faced a situation where some artists I had booked for an award show couldn’t attend due to monetary issues.
People caught me, and that’s when upcoming artists in my school started being my friends, allowing me to book them for events. Although we lost more money than we made throwing parties, we continued because we loved having projects and seeing them come together. So, we transitioned to award shows, and I organized the first social awards at my university,” Mr Eazi narrated.
As a student, he recalled booking Sarkodie, R2Bees, and Wande Coal for the event. Unfortunately, Wande Coal didn’t appear at the show, leading to misconceptions that Mr. Eazi had run away with the money. Reflecting on the challenging situation, Mr Eazi revealed, “I didn’t know that he [Wande Coal] didn’t receive his full money.”
Despite financial constraints and incomplete payments, Mr. Eazi approached Sarkodie and Mugeez humbly.
“I remember begging Sarkodie, who was owed $2,500.00, pleading with him even though I hadn’t paid him completely. He came on stage, saving me with his presence. That’s why, till today, R2Bees’ Mugeez is more than a friend; he’s a brother. He came, jumped on stage, and killed it,” Mr Eazi expressed
