Banku Music leader and golden star of Starboy Worldwide, Oluwatosin Oluwole Ajibade, popularly known by his stage name Mr Eazi, has earned a deal with Los Angeles based Record Label, Ma Decent.
Ma Decent is a Los Angeles based Music Empire owned and managed by Thomas Wesley Pentz, better known as Diplo; a Los Angeles based American famous disc jockey, record producer, rapper and songwriter.
According to a roster of the label artist on her webpage which find the likes of Major Lazer and Jack Ü – two music group which is spearheaded by the label boss, Diplo – on the label artist list, our very own Mr Eazi was surprisingly among the list.
Surprisingly because it never came to our attention that the Nigerian-Ghanaian talented singer and songwriter have been signed to the label. He is indeed one of the signatory to the music empire and his signing was very unique as it was done to encourage American artist (probably signed to the record label) to “make different music”, blending to the new (african) sound that is already taking over the music wave and for the long foreseeable time, will be acceptable as part of creativity.
In his words to The Guardian in his recent interview, Diplo revealed that his signing of the Nigerian act was down to him “hoping someone in America will hear him and then make different music“.
Mr Eazi have earlier stated that he has recorded over twelve (12) songs with the amazing Pentz who continues to regard and defend his claim of African sounds as the Future.
