It certainly feels like an official ‘Mr. Eazi Week.’ The 26 year old has been the news cycle for several days as a result of some sound bites of his.
Well, here’s another sound bite: he told Beat FM that he abandoned a juicy 9-5 job for face music – thenet.ng reports!
“After I came back from Ghana, I got a job in oil and gas in Port Harcourt that paid about six thousand dollars per month but I quit because I was not finding fulfillment in it. I mean it was the same thing everyday, the same routine over and over again.”
He talks about his reason (s) for choosing music over dollars;
“The decision to quit the job finally hit me when my boss’ wife left him even with all the money he had. After I left my job, I got my Masters degree and with all that qualification I started selling phones in computer village and everyone thought something was wrong with me.”
His parents intervention;
“Even my mother started praying special prayers for me but my father didn’t add that final voice that would have decided my fate. My break finally came after I got an invite to do two shows in London that made me twelve thousand pounds which I used to shoot two videos.”
