Mr Eazi reveals when he got a sign to quit music and go into business

Nigerian singer, Oluwatosin Oluwole Ajibade, professionally known as Mr Eazi, has revealed that he went into music business out of boredom of being an artiste.

The ‘Patek’ hit-maker said he stumbled into music by accident and never wanted to be a musician. He explained that it was after he performed at 2019 Coachella that he realised he had to do something else

Mr Eazi stated this in a recent interview with media personality, Angela Lee, noting that he decided to diversify into tech to ease the burnout he was experiencing musically.

Mr Eazi sign quit music

The mechanical engineer said he contemplated quitting three years into his music career because when he performed at Coachella, he did not feel fulfilled.

He said; “I have a tech company called Zagadat Capital. And this was like me being bored of music. After performing at the Coachella in 2019. I played on the first day of Coachella, I came down from the stage and I felt nothing. No happiness. No sadness.

“For somebody who never wanted to be an artiste, and third year of my career, I’m playing Coachella and I felt nothing. So, for me, it was a sign I would either have to quit music and go do something else.

“Because that was not a good feeling to have or I needed to pause. Maybe I was experiencing burnout. And when COVID hit, it was the first time I paused and tried to decide what would be the next move. I had started Empawa so I was getting to understand the music business.

“But I was tired of even listening to music. How can you run a music business without listening to music? So, I just had my team handle that.

“I have always wanted to be an entrepreneur and now the music has given me access to people and capital, so I was like, okay, I’m gonna start my fund like Jay-Z.”

The ‘Skin Tight’ crooner also disclosed that he will be investing in the movie industry from next year.
