Will use N90m to sue – Mr Eazi says, calls out producer who duped him of N4.5m

Oluwatosin Oluwole Ajibade, popularly known as Mr Eazi, a renowned singer and entrepreneur, recently shared the sources of his inspiration – Nigerian singer 2BABA, previously known as 2Face, and Jamaican dancehall star Beenie Man.

Mr Eazi revealed that his catchphrase “Zagadat” was derived from lyrics in 2Face’s ‘Nfana Ibaga’ remix featuring Beenie Man.

During an interview with Capital Xtra, UK, Mr Eazi clarified that he doesn’t anticipate any copyright issues as he didn’t use the slang in the same manner as it was originally used in the song.
