We had 2 encounters with this legend and Both times were in Redbull Studios in London. Both times gave us insight into someone who may have wondered and speculated so much about.
Encounter number one; we’re ushered downstairs at red bull studios to meet Mr Eazi who is chilled and laid back. Wrapping up promo for his then-upcoming “Life is Eazi” festival. Mr Eazi’s body language was open and inviting. We sat down and talked about the origins of Mr Eazi and the future. It was an insight full chat where we learned that unlike other artists Mr Eazi had plans beyond music. This artist had put a prestige on his career and along with that a deadline. It was then that we realised that this artist wasn’t like others we had met. Not wanting to be boxed in or labeled.
The second meeting; Mr Eazi arrives with his management on the phone organising the last minute details for his festival. Busy yet open is the vibe we got from the international star. When our team shows him what we had in mind for the shoot, he’s open and easy going. Throughout the day we laughed, joked and heard stories and little antidotes that gave us a further look into who he is.
He’s just like your friend or your brother. He doesn’t only want to listen to afrobeats just because he’s an afrobeats star; he listens to J Hus, Krept and Konan and Stormy and is cheeky and funny. He’s determined and focused but he’s also just a guy who wants to have fun, look good, make money and live his best life making good music.
