Nigerian singer Mr Eazi has teamed up with Mixpak label head Dre Skull and Jamaican dancehall star Popcaan for a new song called “Sekkle & Bop”.
Dre Skull has worked with both artists in the past: In 2019, he produced Mr Eazi’s single “Supernova.” The year prior, Dre Skull was executive producer on Popcaan’s album Forever.
Born Oluwatosin Ajibade and better known by his stage name Mr Eazi, he is a singer, songwriter, and entrepreneur. He is the pioneer of Banku music, a fusion sound he describes as a mixture of Ghanaian highlife and Nigerian chord progressions and patterns. Mr Eazi relocated to Kumasi, Ghana in 2008 and enrolled at KNUST, where he began booking artistes to perform at college parties. He showed interest in music after recording a guest verse on “My Life”, a song that gained traction and became a popular record at KNUST.
He released his debut mixtape About to Blow in July 2013 and gained an international audience following the release of the Efya-assisted single “Skin Tight”. His second mixtape Life Is Eazi, Vol. 1 – Accra To Lagos was released on 10 February 2017.
