Mr Eazi claims that his journey into the world of music was unintentional. The Nigerian singer-songwriter stumbled into the music industry by accident, discovering his talent by luck.
Mr. Eazi unveiled how he stumbled into the music business and his internal struggle with contentment as a musician in an interview with media personality Angela Lee, which prompted him to consider giving up music after appearing at Coachella in 2019.
Even though he got the chance to perform at Coachella only three years into his music career, Mr. Eazi, who is also the owner of the IT company Zagadat Capital, revealed that he faced a time in his career when he felt totally off.
However, he baffled at how he could continue in a field that was stressing him out, and in the end he decided to leave certain tasks to his colleagues to find a new sense of purpose.
“Coachella’s opening day was the first time I performed there, and when I exited the stage, I felt nothing. Absent joy. no melancholy.
For someone who never aspired to be an artist, I’m performing Coachella in my third year of my career, and I feel nothing.
“So, for me, it was a sign that I would either have to stop doing music or find another career. Because I needed to take a break or because it wasn’t a healthy sensation to have. I could have been burned out.
And when COVID struck, that’s when I first took a moment to reflect and try to plan my next course of action. I had founded Empawa, so I was learning about the music industry.
But even listening to music was wearing me out. Without music, how can a music industry be operated? So I just delegated that task to my colleagues” He said.
